Can we add SurPeru to that line up? I will give you an extra $12 a month. Does this mean if it is free for a month, subscribers get a $12 credit? I just had to ask because I knew someone else would.

SurPeru is on the list of international channels that we're considering for FiOS TV, and we'll certainly let everyone know here at the Verizon at Home blog of any additions to the line-up.  We hope customers who aren't  familiar with our Spanish-language programming will sample it during this month-long promotion, but there are no credits for current subscribers.

Thanks for the rapid response. The credit question was more as a joke. Bad sense of humor. My spouse has been bugging me to get the Directv dish working again for just SurPeru. If I do that, I would need to drop some of my Verizon features, which I do not want to do.
