If you want to score free premium channels from satellite companies, you have to work a little for them. Premium channels are generally movie channels like HBO and Showtime and come at a "premium" price. There's a number of ways to get these at a discount, or even for free, which can save you a bunch of cash on your monthly bill. But you must be persistent.

Sign up as a new subscriber. Satellite companies often offer incentives for signing up, including up to four months of their "all inclusive" programming. If you already have satellite service, consider switching to another company. Usually, they also will include free installation and equipment.
Renew your contract. When your one- or two-year contract for service is almost expired, call your subscriber to renew your service, but first ask if they'd be willing to throw in a few free premium channels, or at least a few months of them.
Upgrade your equipment. If you have a television that you would like to add an HD box to or need to add another connection in the house, get the installer out. Many times when you add or upgrade your service, the installer can let you know of any deals or promotions that are currently ongoing that might assist you in getting free premium channels.
Watch your provider for specials. Sometimes providers will offer a buy one, get one free package on programming. Check out their websites periodically for these specials.
