I'm stuck in a 24 month contract with DTV! They do have great reception for hi-def, but I specifically wanted On-Demand.
To me, on demand is when I want it not wait for it to record then watch it. Well, if you don't have hi-speed and are not hardwired directly connected to the DVR, forget waiting for your on-demand program. I've had the same problem with them for the last 5 months, it takes almost 3 days. 24 hours a day of recording to watch a hi-def show!
That is way beyond what I want. I've done everything on my end they've asked for, short of ME paying an arm and a leg to be directly connected to the router, which is about +/- 200 feet away. After calling again, because I lose the connection and spending over 2 hours on the phone with their techs, it gets repaired for about 15 minutes, then shuts off again. Wanting out of the contract I was told.
Sorry, we can't guarantee your speed or length of time to record something. We guaranteed you a TV connection, everything else is just extra. You will have to pay a $20 per month early cancellation fee totaling about 380 bucks!! All for a service I could not even test out before signing for it.
The 30 days you get for a trial I couldn't even count because the other equipment hadn't been hooked up and then when the equipment came in, it never worked to my satisfaction.
So, I'm stuck. Don't let it happen to you...Keep Murphy's Law in mind..If it can go wrong, it will and Direct TV's lies will have you paying for it!
