I used to be A installer so I have some old eq. So I decided I would just call up and activate a receiver for my father. Had no problems doing this in the past.
But Now I am told that DTV will not activate old eq you own unless you are an existing customer.
But in order to be a customer now you have to sign up for a lease and sign a contract.
They flat out refused to let me activate the equipment I owned as a new customer. Thats sorry service. It cost them nothing to activate this equipment that I will install. All they have to do is take the money. Thats bad business. Bow have they changed since the owners changed. They are now a contract only service. That might make sence when the do the install and provide the eq.
I am never going to be a DTV customer until they change owners.
I have also noticed that all dealers have gone out of business and they only sell direct.
