this is true. I'm still pissed that I have to caugh up more money for this problem. Just bite the bullet, Dish.
Yeah, I was offered half off Center Ice with DirecTV the first time I called. I argued and argued with her (she was a complete bitch), and I asked to speak to a supervisor...she kind of laughed and said ok...which ticked me off.
The supervisor got on the phone and had an attitude right away and offered half off Center Ice. But I said that I wasn't going to cough up even more money for hockey, which I should already be getting under television lineup they had when I signed up. I demanded free Center Ice and he said he couldn't do that. When I said that I knew of others that had gotten it for free and that I wanted the same deal, he basically called me a liar and said nobody has gotten free Center Ice.
He was an F'ing douche.
So then I called back the next day and immediately said I wanted to talk to someone about cancelling my service. He asked how he could help me and I said, "Well, I'm a hockey fan...so I guess you know why I'm calling."
He then offered up free Center Ice right away without me even asking for it, and I took it.
He was a nice guy...he said he was a hockey fan...a Detroit fan no less.
I wish I had the name of the jackass I talked to the first time to call him back and tell him to go F himself. The douche lied to me...I just wanted to call him on it. Asshole.
Half off is still a good deal, even though it doesn't solve your lack of Blues games problem. But half off is half off. That's less than what they sell Center Ice for after the season is half over. Half off is worth it for the playoffs alone.
