The last straw was when I was able to lower my monthly bill to $35 last February. I had changed my programming to lower my bill but was surprised to learn that my bill would be increased by $40 starting in June.
So they once again raised my monthly cost to $75 which is too exorbitant a price to pay. So, I went out and bought a hdtv antenna with a 125 mile range and am now getting free tv. Just like in the good old days before the need for hdtv. When I had switched my programming, the directv rep told me that the $35 would be my normal rate and since I don't watch that many stations that don't interest me, like the Spanish speaking stations, it is wasteful but I understand that they bundle many programming choices into a programming package.
But, I was lied to when I found out that my monthly bill would be increased. I was asked if I wanted to bundle my phone with at&t. I said no because my monthly phone bill is now $12 with a veteran owned company. They asked me if I wanted to bundle with an internet server.
I told them that I am paying $30 per month with a wifi connection at my home. The scam that they play is in order to lower your monthly rate for directv, they increase your cost for phone and internet access.
