I am so thankful for all of your comments. It has helped me make my mind up.
I contacted Direct TV through a sales person calling on me. I was almost ready to sign up, but thought it was strange that the customer service person wanted so much personal info before signing me up. She wanted my credit card number, SS# etc. This made me uneasy so I told her I would need to think about subscribing and my husband and I needed to talk it over.
The promos sounded very good and the price was within our budget. My husband said we ought to read reviews to help us make up our minds. Thank goodness for this sight! Any company that charges credit cards without their customer's knowledge, drafts monies from checking accounts without permission of the customer, makes unexpected charges to your bill, let's me know I do not want to do business with that company.
These are unethical practices.
Thank you so much again! You helped us make up our minds.
