I have been with DirectTV from the first days of PrimeStar and have just cancelled my service. Two years ago I bought a DirectTv HD-DVR receiver from Best Buy for $500.
I also bought a 50" Plasma system for over $5K. For the last two years of buying this system DirectTv has been charging me a lease fee for the system I bought besides the fees for the six channels of HD and the fees for Tivo service. None of this was explained to me at Best Buy and their customer service is still unaware of this situation. Since I cancelled my DirectTV service they want the receiver which I paid for back.
They say it is leased. I never signed or was told of a lease agreement.
Is anyone interested in getting a class action suit against DirectTV of BestBuy for these deceptive practices?
Monetary Loss: $500.
