Well, bless their pea-pickin' hearts, they've given me app logins for half of the channels I usually watch AND a free year of HBO, just as my 3 month pre-paid subscription ended and I was ready to ditch this service. If they can give me app logins for AMC, BBC America, TNT, TBS and Lifetime they'll be giving Vue's cloud dvr a real run for my money. So, I'm in for a few more months, I guess.

They'll be adding it to our accounts automatically, theoretically, by end of day.

Chat is saying to give them 24 hours to update eveyone's account for the Free HBO. This is actually very surprising and nice. I do agree if they give us the app login for TNT, AMC, I'll stay a customer, was contemplating cancelling, but if the app login keeps improving, there won't be any reason to leave. Basically I'd be happy with just those 2 but TRUTV, and GSN, who just came up with an app would be icing on the cake.
