We have had Direct TV for not quite two years. We switched from Dish after visiting with a sales rep at our State Fair. It was THE WORST decision we have made regarding TV!!! Right now, the following channels are black: 231 Food; 238 Reelz; 245 TNTHD; 247 TBSHD; 260 WeHD; 281 Velocity, 299 NikeHD; 304 TVLNDHD
just to name a few. These are channels we normally get. As far as we know around 8:00 pm for the past three nights, these channels are black. I will be keeping track of these and the number of days we cannot get these channels and I believe I will dispute my next bill--why pay for something we cannot get. Unfortunately we have a year left on our contract but as soon as it is up, we will be switching!!!

Can we all get together and file a class action law suit against directv.? There seems to be a million people with complaints and nothing is done. Are they paying the government to get away with screwing their customers. All their customer service people lie!

Mike here in Florida
We are required to have % of connectivity attached to our jobs when they are closed. hen closing a broadband eligible it needs to respond or we loose points on or score card.
our office is required to have a good completion rate as well
Do you know how many jobs get rescheduled due to the customer not having internet at the time of install.
I do.
10% to 15 % If a customer is getting their Internet installed on tuesday and I'm there on Monday to install direc tv. Alot of times I need to reschedule our customer because I need the Internet connectivity Just wanted to run this by you because we need these jobs closed out. That's a priority along with great customer service and quality. When managing my score card I have to look out for myself first though. It affects my pay Thank you

i work for advanced media . contractor for direct sat usa. i don't think it's fair that we are forced to work for this company just because Steve raumslaug wants us to. we should be able to make our own choice on what sub contractor company we want to work for. when i told my supervisor how i felt he fist bumped another tech saying not while we have steve in our pocket laughed then walked away. i was lied to on pay to. forget your company and what you stand for

Dear directv,
I would really, really, really, really appreciate it if you stop freaking plastering *** Bon Jovi on my screen. Anytime I'm on ESPN it seems like the only commercial that is played is "that's the power to turn back time!". I would truly appreciate it you cease from Bon Jovi commercials. Thank you.

I am very upset that tonight when I tuned into the Cloo Channel to watch Fantasy Island that it is no longer there. It says no signal yet I have all other channels except for Weather Nation, which also says searching for signal. Please correct this matter ASAP as I have been a customer since 2004 and would appreciate receiving the channels I have been paying for all these years.

I have had a very upsetting and completing fraudlent experience with Direct TV. On 3/26/2016 I contacted Direct TV at 1-800-531-5000 and spoke to a salesperson named Duncan. I explained that I was disenchanted with Comcast and their price increases. He promised me that I could get the same channels and service with Direct TV at much lower rates. I told Duncan that I have Triple Play now and want the same package with them. Needless to say the very next day, Easter Sunday a tech named Gregg came to my house and installed a satellite dish and used a splitter to connect the dish to my existing wiring from Comcast. Later that evening i had an opportunity to use the system and in no way was this service the same as what I had been promised!! Nothing could be farther from the truth. I was also told by Duncan that direct TV partnered with Verizon. That I also found out was false, I found out that for me to have phone and internet service I would need to pay an additional $99.99 to Verizon to have a phone jack placed in my home. I could not afford that. This was the beginning of a nightmare with Direct TV. I have spoken to more than 2 dozen representatives and got NOWHERE!!! I cancelled my service with Direct TV and Verizon the very next day on 3/28/2016. Now I have Received a bill from Direct TV for an outlandish amount of $543.37, I am disabled and live on a fixed income. I was informed that there was nothing they could do and I am being held responsible for this... Show more

Diane, Please let us know if you get some action with this. I've been reading complaints that started way back in 2009. You would think, with all the complaints, that Direct TV would have changed policy to correct these issues. Since it is May 2016 and Direct TV is still practicing deceit, evidently nothing has been done and they do not fear the public.
Thank you,
