How to Use Pay-Per-View Certificates

Pay-Per-View certificates are awesome – after all, who doesn’t love free movies? Before we tell you how to redeem yours, here are a few rules to be aware of:

  • Certificates can be used for Pay-Per-View movies (found on channels 502-530) and Video on Demand (found on channels 1 and 501). They cannot be used for sports, events, or adult titles.
  • Certificates are valid for movies up to $6.99. There is no residual value if used on movies under $6.99, and you will not be able to use your certificate to order movies over $6.99.
  • Certificate numbers can be found either on the My Pay-Per-View Certificates page or in the email you received about your certificate. We’ll automatically pick your oldest one when you order online, through the MyDISH App, or via text message, but if you prefer to order through our automated phone system, you’ll need to make sure you know your certificate number before you get started.
