Direct TV's 'buyout' is a huge scam. A marketer called us repeatedly offering us a great deal.
They would give us a cheaper monthly rate AND buy out our contract. The total cost would be no more than $200 to buy out the contract from Dish. Well, the Dish Cancellation fee = $350 for some outrageous reason. They can charge what they want, put it in VERY fine print, and we all sign up, no recourse, no assistance, no renumeration.
Direct TV WILL NOT help in any way. Talked to six departments 8 individuals while on the phone over 45 min.
No one could help us, there is no particular department that deals with this, that is just the way it is. There has to be a class action law suit against this company.
Monetary Loss: $150.
