Taken from FatWallet:

There is a link, click on it, add your ph# and your last 4 digits of SSN. It opens up a page where it shows showtime/cinemax etc free for 24 months (0.00 per month). Add to cart, and when you are ready to check out you have to talk a online chat person. I believe you already have to have a digital box, this is definitely YMMV, and most likely will depend on your chat rep.

But it took about 5 minutes for me and now i have showtime free for 24 months.

Just a snippet from my chat:

Victor > I have set the channel in your account , in almost 1 hour you would receive the telecast of the channel and would receive an email from us for the conformation of this order.
ROGERS > Thank you so much. Can you confirm the details please?
Victor > Sure, The Showtime is free for you with out any cost , and after the promo period regular prices will be applicable.
ROGERS > and the promo period is 24 months.
Victor > Yes.
ROGERS > Thank you so much Victor!

Next time put for Comcast customers in the header. Good deal, though.

It looks like it just one of the channels and not all three correct? I can't seem to get it to go back to the products page like is says in the op on FW.

Sorry :( I tried to change the title but I couldn't

From what I was reading from SD and FW, it appeared people were more successful when they did it one at a time then all 3 at once.

When you click on the link it takes you to a page where you need to either put your address in, or if you are current subscriber, you need to put in the ph# and 4 digits of SSN associated with your account.

After you do this it takes you to the products page, where they have free promos listed.

Now this is BIG time YMMV. I already got showtime for 24 months, now I'm going to try for Cinemax

Many reported that Showtime was okay at 24 months..but the other two were at 6 months, and all different kinds of wierdness.

Ok yeah I got the page wiht them listed and logged into my account, but looks like you can only add one at a time. Did you add showtime, then chat. Then go back and add another, then chat? Is that the drill?

Dang..no Free Cinemax for 24 months..but I did get Free Cinemax for 6 months. Each Chat person guy is different..

He brought up the fact that to get the promo you need to have already be currently paying for one premium channel. The interpretation I guess is the key. I already have HBO/Starz via my digital package. You could infer the upcharge you get to get the pricer package is like paying the premium.
