Directv in Minneapolis, Minnesota - Interesting policy when moving and can't take service with you

I am moving into a townhome complex where dish service is not allowed anywhere in the complex. Called DTV and told them that I would need to cancel the service 6 months early due to moving into a complex that would not allow a dish. The reply was that I would have to pay their early cancellation fee. Really...? I did not buy the townhome with DTV in mind and probably won't cancel the buying of my new home because of DTV, either. Probably won't lose much sleep over dumping this unfortunately near-sighted group of carpetbaggers, either. Good luck, DTV, getting the $$ from me... I'd rather see you in court over your inflexible and inconsiderate rules.

Directv in Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Direct TV

Yes I have direct tv and fist this is the price they quoted is not the price I was charged I called to resolve this and got someone I could not understand who just kept saying the same line over and over. Second I got charged for a movie I didn't watch and called to have this corrected on my bill and same thing got a operator who hardly spoke English and would not fix or resolve my issue. This company is a joke they lie to get you to sign up then do anything they want and get away with it. This company should be fined for how they treat their customers since we are not free to leave without penalty.

I just got Direct TV this month too.I talk directly to the local company in WI when I need to call someone.What I did learn recently though is...the contract is not for keeping the channels or the monthly price you signed up for.It is a 24 month contract that states YOU have to pay them for 24 months but they can change everything if they choose too.

I purchased the NFL Sunday Ticket, which is in the hundreds of dollars. The first Sunday rolls around and my service goes down.

It finally comes back on during the fourth quarter after I call and complain im told we can't gives refunds on the Sunday ticket. All i wanted was one day of the charge refunded but even a supervisor tells me no. 2nd and third week go by fine then the fourth week is the same thing and no one can help me. Its just too bad I missed week four and no refund of any sort.

So I called and cancealed my entire service and eventhough I didn't watch the final weeks Direct TV keeps sending me collection bills nearly 2 years later. WORTHLESS COMPANY NEVER USE THEM!

Directv in Owensboro, Kentucky - VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT DIRECT TV

An ad insert in Sunday's paper had cheap bundles offered. I called to take advantage of it in Owensboro Kentucky area. After my many questions...I decided to take advantage of the offer. After giving them social security # and debit card number....go figure...that service was not available to me. Now they have my fee for 5-7 days plus now I have an unnecessary inquiry on my credit file! So everyone beware...they will tell you anything to get that $19.95 plus tax for handling and delivery fee. any questions: email me at sheilagranny@yahoo.com.

Directv in Lansing, Michigan - Direct TV sat services

After being initially solicited by a representative at Direct TV satellite services, I contracted for services at an initial price of approximately $34.00 per month. In order to take advantage of their promotional services I had to sign up that day, etc. At the point of sale, I directly asked if the same price applied to the 2 year contract. I was told yes. However, a year later, I came opened my bill from them to find a $89.00 bill! When I called to inquire, they told me that it was in my contract that the price would increase. When I asked for a copy of the contract with my signature, I was referred to write there legal dept and given the address for the office of the president as well. Of course, they were unable to supply me with a phone number. In reviewing my bill, I also noticed because I had elected to stop having them withdraw the payment directly from my checking account, Direct TV began charging me a increased fee for leased equipment to the tune of $10.00 per tv connection. As I voiced my complaints to more than one representative and a supervision, I was given a routine "I apologize" if you misunderstood. One person wanted to sell me additional movie channel services at a discounted rate. My reply was along the lines of why would I want to sign up for additional services when I have already been a victim of the "bait and switch" method of operation. A few of the representatives I have difficulty understanding their speech. Per inquiry, they confirmed that they operate call centers outside of the USA. I refuse to patronize a company to sends our jobs overseas and typically pays those folks a lower wage as well. In the final analysis I am opting to pay a 20.00 per month cancellation fee to rid myself of a 89.00 bill which at the point of sale, I was told would not increase. So, I guess it is a case of "Buyer Beware".

Directv in Norfolk, Virginia - Customer Service Is Horrible!

I was scheduled for Direct Tv to install my cable 2 days ago. The technician that came not only was supposed to be here at 12, he was rude. He showed up at 6 pm, with full intentions of not wanting to do his job. Over the phone he told me that i did not need a written agreement to get cable just a verbal one from my landlord. He not only got here and changed his story about me needing a written agreement, he complained about doing his job in the rain (drizzle). Which would have been understanding to me, but he had just told me 5 minutes before that he was trained to do his job in any type of whether and that the rain wouldn't be a problem. This technician was simply making each and every excuse to not do his job, even after i had waisted 6 hours of my day waiting on him missing my daughters play and work. So he rescheduled wit me for the next morning, i called to make sure of that i talked to an agent, his supervisor and directv supervisor, they all assured me that i was rescheduled for the next morning. I called the next morning (today) and the first agent assures me that i have a morning schedule and that they should be here before 12. It was 12:12 pm i called the next agent said i was scheduled for this after noon. 1 pm hits i call back to speak to a third agent she tells me i am not even scheduled for today, i get transferred to the supervisor, i wait on hold for 32 minutes and they hang up the phone. I then call back and an agent tells me that the earliest that i can reschedule is a week from now. This is simply ridiculous!! and not only were all of their agents on a different page and lied about everything their technician was rude!!!!! There is no good customer service anymore! Not only are they about to loose this customer, they will loose many more of my family and friends!!!!!!

I would stop the autopay asap! change account numbers if possible.

The only safe way to pay DTV is through money orders.If they did this once they will probaby do it again. it is pretty unrealistic that they would charge you for something 3 years ago but this is probably another scam DTV has come up with.They must pay some very intelligent people to do nothing but come up with scams to use on their customers.

Directv in Kansas City, Kansas - Installed a dish and cable on my rental house

My renter contacted Direct TV and ordered their service. They installed a dish on the new roof and ran cable down two sides of the building and attached it to the new siding I had just installed. The renter had no authorization to do this and neither did Direct TV. Trying to contact a person to talk to at Direct TV is impossible. I have emailed to no avail. I have called every number and do nothing but get the run around. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the person turned me over to someone else. After asking if she was a supervisor she said no. I hung up.

Wonder how many more peeps they have done this to, and how many accounts are getting cancelled over it.

DTV is trying to charge you for something,it may be that it is the box you sent back to them as they often try to charge the customer saying they did not get it.Do you have proof you sent their equipment back? a tracking#?

It is good that you filed with the BBB you can also file with the FTC and Attorney General but chances are slim in them answering your complaint as they get so many of them.You might want to look into the Arbitration process and correspond with DTV only through Email that way you have proof of what is said. Good Luck
