Be very careful doing business with Directv. They were nice when we first signed on with them a few years back, but now they seem more concerned with gouging us at every opportunity. We upgraded to HD and were socked with $150 in additional secret fees, on top of the...

David Vitter (R-LA) Rep. William J. Jefferson (D-LA) William J. Jefferson (D-LA) is an ninth-term member of Congress, representing the second district of Louisiana. Rep. Jefferson’s ethics issues stem from his business dealings and from the misuse of federal resources. Rep. Jefferson was included in CREW’s 2006 report on congressional corruption. Federal Indictment On June 4, 2007, Rep. Jefferson was indicted on 16 criminal counts, including two counts of conspiracy to solicit bribes, two counts of solicitation of bribes by a public official, six counts of honest services fraud by wire, one count of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, three counts of money laundering, one count of obstruction of justice and one count of racketeering. The indictment stems from multiple instances in which Rep. Jefferson agreed to perform official acts for 11 different companies in return for bribes payable to him and his family members. The indictment was the culmination of a criminal investigation that began in approximately March 2005. The 94-page indictment outlines in considerable detail multiple bribery schemes in which Rep. Jefferson participated. These include bribes that Rep. Jefferson sought in the form of cash payments, stock, and a percentage of revenues from iGate, a telecommunications firm in Louisville, Kentucky, that were paid to ANJ, a Jefferson family-controlled company. In addition, Rep. Jefferson used his congressional staff to plan trips to Africa for the purpose of promoting iGate’s business ventures and used congressional letterhead for similar purposes. In addition, Rep. Jefferson offered a bribe to a Nigerian official in Potomac, Maryland, in exchange for using his position to benefit a Nigerian joint venture. Rep. Jefferson placed $90,000 of the $100,000 intended as the front-end bribe to the Nigerian official in the freezer of his Washington, D.C. home, separated into $10,000 increments. This money was later recovered by FBI agents during a raid of Rep. Jefferson’s residence. In addition to violating federal law, Rep. Jefferson’s conduct does not reflect creditably on the House. Use of the National Guard to Visit Home and Retrieve Property Five days after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, on September 2, 2005, Rep. Jefferson allegedly used National Guard troops to check in on his home and collect a few belongings – a laptop computer, three suitcases and a large box. By using the National Guard to visit his home and retrieve property -- at a time when the citizens of New Orleans had no such similar opportunities -- Rep. Jefferson appears to have violated House rules, engaging in conduct that does not reflect credibly on the House. DOWNLOAD THE FULL REPORT ON REP. WILLIAM J.

Directv breaks laws all the time. My experience with this company is ongoing and I have filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau (Directv lied to them) and Consumer Affairs, the FCC and coming soon: State and Federal Courts. I see a "60 Minutes"...
My advise to anyone and everyone , do not go with direct tv. I was with dish network, had been for three years and was happy with service. My main DVR was failing, so I called the number on the back of my remote for service. Apperently the person who answered the phone...
Directv in Worcester, Massachusetts - Direct tv
Mayed appoint to install - for a Monday took time off from work to do this - Sunday before installation the left a voice message advising that the installation was for Tuesday - I was not able to talk to any one tell Monday Morning and they told me that it was on for Tuesday - So that is bad service to start so I cancelled further I will kept Charter and cancel everthing from Verzion because they sell Direct TV - When I e-mailed them there response was well you have already cancelled your account and so they had no comments by customer service
I agree with others that Direct Tv is nothing but *** and has shady business practices. Each time they come out and work on a problem be very careful because if they put in different equipment it extends your contact without anything in writing. I have had multiple...

Directv in Benicia, California - Direct tv took money out my checking w/out my authorization
I am so pissed right now because I cancelled my direct tv service shortly after installing it because the dish was installed incorrectly, my hd box was not working most of the time, and i couldnt get someone out to my house to actually fix anything. I cancelled service the same day I signed up for comcast cable. they sent me a final bill in the mail for $250 in April, but to be honest, I was in no hurry to pay it. I looked at my checking account today and much to my surprise there is a bank card debit from them for $497. I have been on the phone with them all day. I get conveniently disconnected at times and this last "supervisor" tells me that there is no documented history of me even cancelling service. they refuse to reverse charges or to tell me what the charges are for!! they should be closed down. i am so upset. i am bouncing things in my account!! what can we do???
Directv in Los Angeles, California - Direct TV Bait and Switch??
Direct TV's web site advertised a $20.00 a month rebate for a year to sign up. A Direct TV installer gave me a phone number. I called, they answered "Direct TV". I asked about the rebate and they said "No Problem". I asked about the "$50. finders fee" because my brother referred me. They said "no problem-just get the form from the installer". I signed up. The installer said he was out of forms and call customer service. I called customer service and they said the rebate would show up in 4-8 weeks but there was no form for the $50.00. That had to be done prior to installation. 6 weeks later a $10.00 rebate showed up on the bill. I called customer service and they said all I could get was $10.00 because I dealt with some kind of agent of theirs. I told them to come take out their equipment and he said I only had 3 days from sign up to do that without penalty. I wrote Direct TV and some women called me back and agreed that when dealing with Direct TV you need to "Read the small print". She said all companies were like this. In my 70 years on this earth, this is the first company I've dealt with that did me this way. The moral of the story is: When dealing with DirectTV, get everything in writing before agreeing with anything.
Directv in Augusta, Maine - Direct TV Scam
I signed up for a Verizon bundle which included Direct TV. Verizon arranged the install with Direct TV, and i was told I had to keep the service for one year. I was never told I would not get my local stations until after it was installed. I have suffered for 11 months, now with the light at the end of the tunnel I contact Direct TV to find out what DAY I can end the torture...only to have them say it is a TWO year agreement. No I never signed an agreement ...but it is on their website. And if I cancel early (How can it be an early cancel? I never signed a two year contract) they will charge me $240
