Because DISH network is dropping AMC, they are offering their customers a free Roku XD player if you call/chat and say you might switch providers because of AMC. Depending on your subscription and account status you may not be eligible for this offer and you may also be able to get a statement credit of $5/month for 6 months or $10/mo for 12 months in addition to the Roku.

It's an interesting move for a major provider to encourage customers to get their programming via a network player. Slippery slope.

I straight up ask for a roku and $10 off for next 12 months. AND I GOT IT!!!

However wrong it may be, i did not subscribe to AMC and I said that I wanted the AMC channel yet they did not provide it. I said that I watched it on dvd and now I wanted it on my tv. I also said that I did not have a xbox or a ps3 and neither did I have a smart tv. And I got the box!!! I did not get the credit.

This is for those with 200 channels or more..

NEW DISH ROKU OWNERS LET'S TALK HOW TO USE AND MAX OUT THE ROKU THREAD IN TECH SUPPORT

I called the number mentioned in this post and told them that I had the 120 plus package and wanted to upgrade to 200 package for getting AMC. I was given the upgrade (which costs $10 more) and 6 months credit for $10 each ($60), One time credit for $30 for the 10 episodes of Breaking Bad, Free Roku box, $50 one time credit for the inconvenience of having to go through Roku. Just an FYI for other SDers trying to call in.

Contract does not get extended just for getting the Roku. You can get in on this deal even if you are in contract.

America's 200 and up had the AMC, IFC, WE channels. Other lower packages had AMC if you were grand fathered in or on some welcome packages.

Get the Roku, ask for HDMI cable, one time credit of $30-50, $5-10 credit for 6-12 months. Maybe even hbo.show.max for free for 3 -6 months.

So I called and got the $10 off per month for 12 months and the ROKU.
Took about 30 minutes including a transfer to the customer loyalty department.

Yeah!

Well, didn't get offered a 12 month credit, just a one time $35 credit and a Roku. I asked if they could offer any more credits and he said no. I assume it is because I'm still on the introductory rate from when I signed up for dish a while back. Oh well, if nothing else I'll try to sell the Roku as I normally just download anything I can't DVR.

Even though they said they were going to send me a roku, they never did. I sent an email to their CS dept. and didn't even get a response. They did give me the credit they promised though. I think they didn't send the roku's on purpose.

So i just moved and called to get set up at my new place and i remembered about this deal, so when I was done I asked the rep if she can do anything for me for being inconvenienced for not having amc and not able to watch my favorite show the walking dead and she gave me a 6 month $5 credit and showtime for 3 months no questions asked, not too bad
