DirecTV Inc Complaint - Deceptive Advertising
COLORADO -- Deception is the key note of Direct TV. Their ads say there is no equipment to buy. Correct, you have to LEASE the equipment and it is expensive. For my 2 HD receivers and 1 regular receiver, I was charged over $450. Then two of the three did not function and needed to be returned. The equipment is only warranted for 90 days so after that, anything goes wrong and you need to lease another unit.
Looks like they recycle this equipment, so what you get may be already used and you are paying a high price for this. It is also probably why the warranty is so short.
Also, the service was faulty (signal fuzzy or quit altogether), called tech support and they said they would send out a tech guy....cost, minimum of $70.00 plus any equipment that I might need.
Reception is mostly good, except transmission has repeatedly stopped during sporting events.
DIRCECT TV needs to make their charges more understandable to potential buyers of their services.
