Too late to look for deals, as I signed up last week wanting to lock in the discounted prices on the receivers. One never knows when a company will pull the plug on promos. As example: with Videotron, we never got even basic information sent to us. Pop, we`d hear about a new channel (VERY rare as they were for anglos) weeks later or I would know about something before their front desk knew ( e.g: when HBO was announced, I had to tell THEM about it !) So, I didn`t want to take a chance on the losing the discount.
My installation is scheduled for next week and am crossing my fingers that everything will go smoothly and I`m not hit with surprises.
Advice to new signers: I signed up on-line with assistance of an e-chat agent. The beauty is that you are typing your instructions to them. At the same time you can be very clear on how you are understanding what you are buying or intend to buy, with all the deals and discounts mentioned. As this thread keeps going, it`s all on your screen. At the end, just COPY and then PASTE into Word Document et voila you have a concrete proof if anything gets screwed up. Black and white confirmation from one of the agents if you have to argue a point which may be denied or changed !
I did this specifically after reading a myriad of threads on this board about how things can get screwed up with administration and the biureaucracy.
