Directv in Painesville, Ohio - Direct Tv
I am pissed off with direct tv. They recently took over $400 out of my account.The service is not in my name ,they said since i used my card to pay some of the bills they would take the money out of whatever card they had on file. keep in mind their are several other cards that i used to pay that bill but they took it out of my primary account and left me we negative $15 and said there is nothing they can do. Although on my statement the tranaction is pending and not yet been posted.
Direct TV will trick you if your not careful.If you use your bank card to sign up for service they will debit past due charges from your account. Even if you cancel service they will take the money directly from your account and they will post on the banks page that...
Directv in Raleigh, North Carolina - Poor service and no help
I am never going to use or recommend Direct TV to anyone ever again. I have had nothing but bad experiences with these people. Out of countless calls to try and get my problems rectified, I only spoke with one customer service rep who was the least bit helpful and polite. Come to find out later unfortunately, that she outright lied to me. This company is a joke. I can't understand how they are still in business. I guess P T Barnum was right, there is a sucker born every minute. I just hope people will read these messages before they do business with Direct TV. It started with lies and ended with lies. Promises not kept and probably never intended to do so. It took them over 2 weeks to get my service started which should have been a clue as to what was to come. I told them originally that I would be moving to a new location in about 2-3 months and was told that I could move my service without a problem and no charges incurred....wrong. I canceled my service and had to pay the "contract" agreement for remaining months. It was a wash for the extra charges that were to be incurred to move my service to the new house. I just had the charges billed to my credit card but I will dispute the charges and delay this as long as possible. I only hope I can make them as miserable as they have made me. The only way to force these crooks to clean up their act is to hurt them financially. Please tell everyone you know to stay away from Direct TV.
Directv in Dayton, Ohio - Direct tv sucks
Big mistake switched from dish TV to direct TV. Scheduled three times before I finally got my installation.First time I took from work to sit at home until 5pm to call to find out I wasn't scheduled, second time took the afternoon off to sit and wait until I called at 5pm to find out the service person was sick and wouldn't be able to do the installation. Direct used my dish TV wiring but I got charged for wiring.everytime I called Direct TV I got the run around.Just waiting till my contract is up, I will be looking for a new provider.
DirectV gets installer to sign 2yr. contract w/customer
We decided to change to DirecTV when we moved and arranged to have the equipment installed. When the tech was finished installing equipment he ask me to sign that he had done so. I signed a paper titled "DirecTV Equipment Lease". Four days later I received my first bill(!) and read there that I had agreed to pay for services for two years. I called and was given the run-around of the century. I was repeatedly told I had been told (I was not) and then just passed around from one person to the next, having to repeat all info and the story over and over. I asked to be let out of the contract, to no avail. Since then I have spoken to many people who have had the same trouble with DirecTV and many more problems. I discovered that the company has thousands of complaints against them with the Better Business Bureau. This company is trouble and the service is not worth the trouble you will have. Stay clear and use Dish.
Directv in Columbus, Ohio - Just charged me $589.89 without notice!
I was under the impression that my 2 year contract was up. Apparently when they sent me a new receiver because my old one was broken, it renewed my contract an additional 2 years! I pretty much told them to go fly a kite and they just charged my debit card $589.39! I have since called Chase bank and reported the charge as fraud and they have put the money back and stated that this happens quite often with their customers who have had direct tv. This company really needs someone to step up and prosecute them for fraudulent business practices!
Directv in Coquitlam, British Columbia - Sattelite direct is a rip off
Sattelite Direct is garbage and a rip off,most channels don't work, not what they advertised, asked for a refund, they refused.Stay away.They mix foreign channels with usa and canadian countries to make it look like they got lots of selection.Most channel didn't work at all,the golf channel just showed the same thing over and over again the picture quality was poor on what few channel that did come in,i contacted them many times requesting a refund within2 days of purchasing it they said no, they kept quoting term of agreement,Pay Pal is useless at getting a refund for anything,next time i'll use credit card.
Directv in Chesterfield, Virginia - Direct TV - service and quality have been abysmal
The equipment does not work and has never worked properly. When I called to complain, DirectTV wanted to charge me a $50 service call just to send someone out to troubleshoot problem. Then they offered me a tech support insurance plan ($5/monthly charge). I was outraged. I am currently locked into a 2-year service contract and I feel like I was duped. I spent nearly 2 hours on the phone getting my issue resolved, there were two disconnects and several long delays. I've had DISH, Comcast cable and Direct TV. Comcast was the best service, the best price and now that they offer international channels, I am not forced to buy into the satellite scam. DISH was better than Direct, but they had major issues assisting me with technical problems. As soon as my DirectTV contract is up, goodbye DirectTV.
Directv in Stone Mountain, Georgia - Direct T.V.
I was a faithful customer for 10 years with Direct T.V. until a customer service supervisor named Joesph hung up on my daughter after an internal error on Direct T.V. part spoiled my daughter's Christmas gift to me. The company acted as if they no longer needed our business, so they got there wish. After three calls to there company one for 19 minutes,one for 29 minutes and the last for 31 minutes with no results I changed to Dish and I will never go back and will pass my story against Direct to everyone that ask. Pissed off, you bet!
