We have had Direct for many years, never paid by credit card. In October, Direct TV decided to hit my credit card for more than the correct amount without authorization. Spent almost two hours on the phone being told that since they had the card number it didn't...
Directv in Norfolk, Virginia - False claims to extend contract
On November 6 (or so) 2011, I tried to cancell DirectTV and was convinced by a female phone agent to suspend account which now they claim is an extention of contract which I was never told when I first called to cancel service. She said it is an option to decide later if I wanted to cancel or not.Today, November 22, 2011, I spent a lot of time trying to cancel this service on the phone with the automated "person" and the male phone agent. Very frustrating and annoying. There was refusal to listen to me the first time to send me what I needed to return equipment. The request was made 4 or 5 times. I had to demand to speak to a supervisor or manager before any real action was taken in regards to my request for what I needed to return equipment. I felt threatened by the agent saying the credit card on the account would be "debited" which I felt were services not received or requested. This company uses trickster antics to prey on poor people. They are dishonest and nasty nice. I would never recommend DirectTV and I hope they go out of business because of their practices.
Directv in Willimantic, Connecticut - Direct TV Defective Equipment and Poor Install
Install date was set for Thursday between 8 am. and 12. Technician shows up for install at 5:30 pm. Hooks up equipment and leaves cut cable ties and wire all over yard. Equipment remote that does not work correctly. When pushing button the remote sends a double signal to the receiver therefore you cannot tune in a specific channel. When I contacted Direct TV, I was told that I could purchase another remote and have it in 3 weeks for $ 25.00. I have had this equipment for 3 days and it did not work correctly from day 1. However they would send me a new remote for no charge if I signed up for the equipment insurance for only $ 5.99 per month. So far very unhappy with Direct TV considering I have only had their system for less than a week.
Directv in Seattle, Washington - Direct TV gave me the ol' run-around.
We had a DVR box with went out (nothing but snow on the screen), so I phoned tech support at Direct TV. My intention was to just purchase a new DVR box, but the support person said they wouldn't do that as they had to "review" my account. Now, we have been loyal, good customers for over 6 years... always prompt with payments and even accepted a few of their promotions. So what does reviewing my account have to do with replacing a DVR box? I accepted the support person's answer and believed her when she said that they would be phoning me back within 2 hours. I had to call them back in almost 3 hours. The agent gave me another run around and said they would call me back in 30 minutes. I called them back in another hour. 3 agents later, and nothing is done. All I wanted was a new box??? I'm phoning back to cancel my account. Horrible service!!!

Directv in Atlanta, Georgia - Dont subscribe to direct tv.
They cancel my subscription for non payment.Ok.. I aggree with that.4-5 times I speak to the reps. and ask for the address to return the receivers but they keep insisting for paying them first.I just got tired of dealing with them. I finally got the address from my co-workers who is also canceling thier service.I'm glad that I'm on month to month basis with them.My contract had expired but I wasn't happy that they can automatically increased my monthly bill for another $23.00. I only have the basic channel and I'm being charge from $67.00 to $84.00 . I find my business somewhere else. This company is going down soon. A lot of people are not satisfied with this co.I tried to e-mail customer service. once you click to continue, it froze.Also..anyone who still with direct tv...my advice is cancell your visa card and don't give them your new one. Make sure you pay the one time payment only. Don't give them the auto..if they debit your card without your permision. Let the bank handle that..
