Direct TV cut off our local channels with no warning at all. When we called to have it checked out they sent out a very efficent tech who went over the whole system. He couldnt find any problems so he contacted his office where it was finally determined that we are living in a different county than they had listed.
. We moved into this house in Jan 08 and have been revieving Local channels from Sacramento the whole time. Our previous home also got locals from Sac.. The town we now live in(Forbestown, Ca.) straddles the county line between Yuba and Butte Counties. Our last home was in Yuba county but our new home is 500ft.into Butte County. Since we have children in the Sacramento area and often go there to visit and also do major purchase shopping in that area, we have a greater interest in the local news and ads.
Our local channels are now coming from;
Chico: A town we go to 3-4 times a year.
Redding: A town we have never visited.
Reno:In a different state, for christ sake!
We were told that because of our living in Butte Co. we have no choice other than getting these suck-*** stationswhen our neighbors,500ft. down the road can get the channels that we enjoyed for years.
It seems to me that Direct TV could make some concessions to keep customers happy!
