    I was recently called by directtv (I'm a customer) and the dude told me we could get three free months of hbo and Cinemax... No charge.

    Two days later, it went off...

    Now, I call directtv and they tell me that the guy offered me a 2 for 1 deal (they didn't) and that they don't have the power to offer free premium channels... Basically tell me to pound sand...

    Ripoffs of is magnitude make me think Howard is somehow involved..

    Other than the 26 DirecTV receivers he has at penthouse apartment or his Hamptons' estate, the answer is no.

    I think it was the great philosopher Sun Tzu who once said "Marbles are always present when one speaks but not all Marbles are visible"
