That's precisely what I thought too! I looked over the flyers they had about the promotion as well as speaking with the rep doing the demo's at length. You get the rentals (VIP 1216 & 1200 box) and pvr feature free as long as you have MTS Ultimate package......I then went home and called MTS TV call center and they too verified the promotion. There are NO worries about loosing these credits. Fantastic promo if you can take advantage of it.
Presently not available in my area yet. I had the MTS rep make a note on my account that, when I am eligible for the service, the current promotion will be honoured.
