Direct tv is horrible! I've called over 4 times and been on the phone for 3 hours or more hours. I've been hung up on twice after given my number to call back after beening on hold for a hour or more. "All I've heard is that ATT is the best" what a bunch of bull ***. Here my acct number I'm sure it's all in the notes "46294635"

I have been a subscriber since 2012 and there have been many programming interruptions these past couple of months and yet I stood by DirectTV. Now a major television network is being blacked out FOX network! If it happens then I will go to dish network or cable by this weekend. Don`t do it!

I am worn out trying to be heard. This is the most dishonest and disorganized company I have ever had the displeasure to do business with!

I have several rental properties. In total there are 7 dtv dishes installed on my properties without my permission. I am going to remove them and throw them on the floor at your local office . I realize I don't have permission to do so but mark my words... I will put these dish s at your local office . You must have my approval to *** dish on my property. Jerry. 9129962636

Wow, been 26 days now to get my account updated and equipment upgraded after a move AND I've been a Directv customer since 2010.
I called Directv on and was on the call for 1 hour and 42 minutes, was transferred no less than 3 times and finally got to someone who helped me out with getting my account updated and new equipment upgrade.
My account still can't be updated until this installation/service is completed so this is very frustrating as it seems no one at Directv can get this figured out.
Only service appointment they could get me was a week after the order.
Installer called me on the morning of the installation to say the did not have the equipment in stock and needed to reschedule for 2 days later (on a Saturday morning). Never got any confirmation or anything from Directv or installer.
Now, as I talk with Directv on the phone... AGAIN for over 30 minutes being shuffled from person to person (and on hold most of the time as they rep "checks their system") I am lost in the quagmire of their system. With as many options that are out there for entertainment in the home these days (and considering I have been a loyal Directv customer since 2010) I would expect better customer service and response from Directv. Just seems like I keep getting the runaround and no one can get this problem resolved.

I just want to get credit for my returned equipment. It got misplaced in a move, and as soon as I came across it, it was sent back. So now they have all of their equipment back and will not give me credit for it. Spoke to customer service and was told they could see it was returned 7 months ago, but unfortunately they can issue no credit.....even though it has been back in their possession for 7 months! I told them I was more than happy to pay what I actually had owed for services at that moment, but find it ridiculous to pay for equipment they received back. Did I mention that the equipment got misplaced in a move that we had to make because my husband was killed tragically in a motorcycle accident. So forgive me if that happening, plus having to unexpectedly move pushed returning equipment to a non-priority. Oh, and my husband and I had been loyal customers of Directv for a long time. Very frustrated and wanting to settle this account without feeling like I am being robbed. (Having to pay a lot of money for something I do not possess.) Please contact me with a reasonable payment at
Account #47598491.
I want to pay you!! Just asking to only pay for services rendered, not the equipment I returned.

For the last 3 weeks I've been trying to get someone to get the channel playing holiday music which is in my Entertainment Package installed in my guide with no luck. I've been missing led as far as getting this resolved. We've had 2 Technicians come to the house and check all our systems. Everything is fine. I've been told it's the satellite, it's the programming,I've even been told the channel ,815,was going to be moved to 801 on Monday,it didn't happen. Imy very unsatisfied with the help I'm getting ,and on top of it I'm paying for this in my package. Also Noone seems to be getting back to me as far as the status. I hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears ,or pushed to the side. Thank you. My email iso

I really hope this is being read. I am a very irate wife of one of your very new customer. Your customer service and supervisorial skills are the uttermost worst experience I've ever encountered in life. I WHAT MY SERVICE BACK ON AND I WILL BE CALLING THE BBB....You guys are SCAMMERS and you are stealing people's money...your luring in customers and your lies becomes the customers nightmares when we start receiving high BILLS...NOT ACCEPTABLE LAWYERS WILL START GETTING INVOLVED.

I do not have Direct TV, I have been with Dish for over 10years, Direct TV has been trying to take $600.00 out of my debit card, this is just like steeling money from people such as myself I called customer service and the customer service agent hung up on me because I could not get her to listen to what I was saying I have not blocked this card. I will never do business with
Direct TV ever.

DirecTv commits fraud! Had a charge of $540 to my account this week and I don't even have DirecTv! And haven't used them in over 10 years!! Called their Fraud Dept but of course they hung up on me. Called another number and was told that since I don't have an account, they really cant track down what happened. My bank told me that they have been seeing alot of these fraudulent Directv charges happening lately!

Where is Fox new? Never ever before has this happened and during the Presidential Election. Seems quite strange for sure. Not for one second do we believe this is a technical issue like the message said. Or like the message said, that it is a HD channels problem. Well every other HD channel comes in just fine. So WHAT is going on Direct TV. We were going to switch 15 year service with Verizon and bundle with you and AT&T. Not now!!!!! Actually we will be changing to cable. Service is always out for hours in CO during snowstorms anyway, and no adjustments are ever made to accounts. I called also today about the black out. Suddenly Direct TV after years doesn't recognize us, can't find our account. However Direct TV finds our account if we want to order a movie channel or sports channel. Mighty strange. Censorship is unconstitutional and not something that should be taking place in the United States. Very disappointed as a family of Marines and Marines that gave their lives, and other military branches. Encourage family elsewhere and friends to go back to cable. Disgusted customer!!!!!
