When I connected Direct TV to disconnect my service after 9 years I was told I would be charged $250.00. I was told that I had agreed to a two year commitment when I upgraded a box to HD.
I paid $99.00 for the box and still had to pay monthly lease charges. New customers receive the equipment for free, thus the two year commitment. I asked for a copy of my signed contract. They couldn't provide one.
They charged my card and demanded the HD box back or pay another $450.00 for a $199.00 box at retail.
Beware of Direct TV and their business practices.
