DirectTV Informative - Dumped Them
CARVER, MASSACHUSETTS -- DirectTV was and still is a terrible service. I dumped them as soon as my contract was up. They still owe me noney now for 7 months! Thives!
Morals of the story. Do not sign a contract with a TV provider. Charge back the days you can not get TV service.
Do not believe DirectTV's claims of superiority. They truly do have terrible customer service, no picture when it rains, snows, ices over, or a tree branch blows in the dish path.
Cable is expensive and the station coverage is not as good but it is there 99% of the time. Internet TV is an alternative. Also you can get over the air HD TV for free. Only your local stations come in but if all you want is news and do not care about the other crap offered by cable it may be your answer.
