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 through the MyDISH App, but if you prefer to order through one of the other methods below, you’ll need to make sure you know your certificate number before you get started.
- Certificates expire 90 days after issuance. Don’t let it happen to you!
Download the MyDISH App for Android or iPhone and sign in using the same Online ID and Password you use on mydish.com. Visit the DISH Cinema tab and pick the movie you want to order. If you have a valid Pay-Per-View certificate, it will be the default payment method – it’s that easy!
Go to Order Pay-Per-View or Order On Demand and sign in using your Online ID and Password. Pick the movie you want to order, choose “Use Certificate” as your payment method, and provide the 4-digit certificate number you want to use.
Text MOVIE to DISH1 (34741) and follow the text instructions to pick the movie you want to order. When prompted, text CERT to use your certificate as your payment method, then provide the 4-digit certificate number you want to use in your next response.
Call 877-DISH-PPV (877-347-4778) and follow the voice instructions to pick the movie you want to order. When prompted, press 1 to use your certificate as your payment method, then provide the 4-digit certificate number you want to use.
