I don't subscribe to the complete package, in fact at this point the only extra cost features I have are the HD package and the local channels. I don't have the sports package, or HBO, or Showtime or NFL or NBA or any of those premium channels, and I have never been able to bring myself to use the pay-per-view feature, so I doubt that I am considered their "best" customer.
I'm also not clear on whether he paid anything for his HD-20. Since he's in Wisconsin, he may have. I haven't read anything about them sending HD-20s for free to any markets outside of LA and NY. But I'll probably call D* on the weekend and ask for an explanation of why someone else got the dish without a commitment, and I was told that if I wanted to go ahead and upgrade the dish, a 2 year commitment would be required.
