    Just found out today that if you are currently a Dish Network customer and also subscribe to Blockbuster by mail service you can link your account save $ and get extra channels as part of this new feature.

    First make sure that your Dish Network and Blockbuster email addresses are the same.

    Then go login to your Dish Account and select My Programming.
    Select Movie Pass and submit the change. You will then be asked to verify and link your Blockbuster account. Your queue and all your Blockbuster settings will be migrated. The cost for 1 DVD at a time is $10 and you will also get additional channels:

    http://www.dishnetwork.com/blockbuster/customer.aspx

    This is pretty cool considering I already had both services separately and linking them together gives you more features, channels and possibly savings..

    If you have Dish but no Blockbuster account this a a good deal as well. You can add this to your account the same way as described above to start this service and get the extra channels. I already liked Blockbuster better than Netflix and this integration with Dish makes it even better.

    Another thing is if you activate any compatible device (Android, Blu-Ray Player, TV, etc..) with your Blockbuster account you get $5 posted to your acct right away so you can use it towards any movie you like.

    If you dont mind me asking, how much business do you do with your computer repair thing?

    The reason I ask is because I never have used them and dont know anyone who has...is it a viable market?

    I setup the compute repair site long time ago to see if I can make some extra cash. People did call and email and it was actually too much for me and none of my lazy friends wanted to earn extra cash so I stopped. I set the prices WAY lower than all other places though, so maybe that's why so many people called. I forgot that I still had the link in my signature -- removed

    It's Monday and I'm a little slow, but how much is Blockbuster per month? Also, do you get these extra channels for as long as you have your Blockbuster account?

    I might do this just to get Palladia back. Not sure why they took it off my normal package.

    EDIT: Okay, I saw that 19.99 and thought it was the price for Blockbuster. Guess I'll go home and see which of these channels I have and don't have and see if it works out or not. Thanks for the heads up.

    It says you can get more DVD's instead of 1 at a time and yes it will cost more. Still cheaper than Netflix and also cheaper than Blockbuster used to charge before being bought by Dish.

    You also get online streaming with this.

    I only had 1 DVD at a time with Blockbuster so this deal was really good for me. Monthly fee went down to $10 instead of $12 and I get 20+ more channels and streaming and one bill instead of 2.

    Here are the extra channels you get (yes..some are crap but to those who already have Blockbuster or were going to get it as stand-alone service..this is a bonus)

    Centric HD
    Crime & Investigation HD
    Encore Suspense
    EPIX HD
    EPIX2 HD
    HD Theatre
    HDNet Movies
    Hallmark Movie Channel
    IndiePlex HD
    LOGO HD
    MAVTV HD
    MGM HD
    MoviePlex
    Palladia HD
    PixL HD
    RetroPlex HD
    Sony Movie Channel
    Starz Cinema
    Sundance
    Universal HD
    World Fishing Network

    In order to get these extra channels you have to add the Movie Pass feature through your DishNetwork account. This feature gives you the Blockbuster by mail (1 DVD or game at a time) and unlimited store exchanges - its $10. It says you can upgrade to 2 or 3 DVD's at a time as well by going to the "A La Carte" section through your Dish acct under programming.

    They had this feature before but all it gave you is the 20+ extra premium channels -- which you said you already have so that explains why you have Movie Pass.

    I don't see it either. Their FAQ says it should be there.
    Going to ask them and will let you know what they say.

    i got rid of it so my new bill shows up as $10 cheaper. I might come back to it in the future once Netflix goes crazy.

    Sorry, I already got rid of it. I’m a big TV show guy and to have one disc at a time will take forever to finish a show. Like I said above I might give it a real chance once Netflix goes crazier.
