Scam! Costco's DIRECT TV brochure reads "NO EQUIPMENT TO BUY" yet on their statement shows charges listed as EQUIPMENT FEES $34.50 PER MONTH.

So if there is no equipment to buy, how can there be equipment fees? The Costco DIRECT TV brochure reads "NO START UP COSTS" and DIRECT TV boast about being "WIRELESS WITH NO CABLES", yet there is a ONE TIME $100.00 UP FRONT FEE for the wireless capability.

In addition to your package charge, you will be charged $15.00 plus 6.50 for each TV for the "NO START UP COSTS" and "NO EQUIPMENT TO BUY" features. After a close comparison I found DIRECT TV's cost to be double that of what I am paying through Comcast.

Product or Service Mentioned: Directv Tv Package.

Reason of review: Deceptive advertizing .

Directv Cons: Deceptive advertising policies.

I too have had direct TV installed through Costco. My home theater system that worked perfectly with spectrum no longer works correctly.

The last tech left after correcting 3 of the 5 speakers saying "I don't do audio".

AVOID THIS COMPANY. TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Directv doesnt advertise as a cost saver. They consider themselves to be the only premium pay tv service.

Thus the reason why Comxast is cheaper, and has worse picture quality.

The fees you are talking about are lease fees . Thus the "no equipment to buy."
