When we ordered DTV we understood we would be charged when service begins. Not true. They begin to charge from the day you order. This was confirmed by phone after we were billed.
DTV offered 3 months free Showtime,HBO and STARZ. We were charged every month and had to fight the bill every month. Showtime was cut a month early and we were still charged.
DTV carries many ESPN channels as part of it's basic package....right up until some important events are scheduled, like the NCAA basketball finals. Then the alternate ESPN channels become pay per view at $14.95 PER GAME.
In summary, we were better off with our cable company who could get a bill right, and honestly carried what they promised. DTV is a typical big American business out to make a buck and without any conscience or integrity.
