My wife recently signed with Direct TV on a shopping trip to Sam's Club. The installation was scheduled for between 8 am & noon.
Technician showed up at 12:20. I left to go to an appointment and my wife came home to take over. Tech said he would like to place dish on pole in yard. He said it was too heavy for the roof.
Several of my neighbors have them on the roof. He stated that he could place in the corner where not visisble. Placed it in middle of yard where kids play. Wife said, my husband is not going to be happy.
Called Direct TV to complain, they said if you purchase through Sam's Club that they are not responsible for the installation. The contracting company said they would charge to re-locate. Tild them to stick it, and called Direct TV. They said they could send someone out for $45 more.
That's after I was charged $65 for the pole in my yard and $35 for he cable to be wrapped around my garage! I'll let you know what happens when Direct TV Tech comes out Sunday.
