Do not go with Direct TV. They scam you promising a rebate and never give you it.
They tell you not to worry and only pay the agreed to package which for my case it was 39.99 with the rebate. It's been since September 2007 and today April 2008, I still see a 59.99 bill with no rebate applied. Even though I have called multiple times to address this situation they promise to fix. As of today 4/10/08, I get service cut off due to not paying the their late charges on bills of 59.99.
I've keep my bargain and made sure I paid the 39.99 a month. It's a SCAM. They tell you they'll give you rebate to get you there and hope that you don't call or forget about it once you have the service.
They know they will get money either by making you pay the amount with late fees or by having to pay the cancellation fees.
