Here is it RAINING and I am getting the message on my TV "searching for satellite connection"!!!!! Would you BELIEVE -- THE ONLY time we GET TV through Direct TV (Satellite) is when the weather is PERFECT!!!!!
UNREAL!!!!! WE are spending OVER $100.00 per MONTH for Direct TV service and can ONLY get reception in the GOOD WEATHER!!!!!
SORRY -- I lied -- out Direct TV bill is between $97.97 and $115.49 PER MONTH!!!! BELIEVE me when I tell you CABLE TV is a *** of a LOT BETTER than Satellite TV!!!!!!!! When Hurricane Floyd hit our ares some years ago -- we STILL have CABLE TV service -- GRANTED, it DID go in and out -- BUT we STILL had TV service!!!! With Direct TV, if it's raining, windy or snowing -- or ANY OTHER ADVERSE weather conditions -- we DON'T get TV service!!! AND, there's NO credit given for TV outage!!!!!! At LEAST WITH CABLE TV, if the outage went over a certain amount of hours -- you got CREDIT off your bill!!!! DIRECT TV -- FORGET about even TRYING to get a credit for non-service!!!!!!
PLUS, that company TOTALLY DISCRIMINATES between males& females!!!!! Case in point -- I CALLED Direct TV and wanted a tech to come out to fix our problem and was quoted a RIDICULOUS HOURLY FEE -- PLUS parts!!! When mu HUSBAND got home, I had HIM CALL and he asked the EXACT SAME QUESTIONS, TOLD THEM THE EXACT SAME THING I had earlier!! GUESS WHAT????? They told HIM they would come out and fix the problem AT NO COST!!!!!!! HUH?????? DUH??????? The EXACT SAME thing I had called about -- the EXACT SAME questions I had asked and I was told there were all these freaking fees involved!! My HUSBAND calls a couple hours LATER and asks the SAME FREAKING QUESTIONS and tells the company THE EXACT SAME PROBLEMS and HE is told there would be NO CHARGE!!!!!!!!!!! GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK!!!!!!!
