DirecTV Inc Informative - Ripped off - Equipment and pricing
SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA -- I bought a HD TV and called direct TV for HD service. That is when my money began going down the money hole. First I was told that a receiver would cost somewhere around $400.00. Which would be included in my monthly payments. Or, I could buy their equipment for $700.00. Holy cow...so I paid over $400.00 for equipment I don't own, plus a monthly lease fee. Ouch. Now...it's all hooked up and I get dropouts ALL the time. I call and I am told this is normal. Ouch again. Now here comes the recent Santa Ana winds, and fire storms. My dish goes nuts and I am without reception during a crisis. So I call and NO one can come out for 10 ten days. I decide that as much as I hate Warner cable, this is the best way to go. So I get the Bundle and for the same price I am paying direct TV, I get internet, phone and HD TV. So, I call and cancel Direct TV and I am now stuck buying out my contract for HD for $175.00 more bucks. What CROOKS. And I am an idiot for ever doing business with them. I would rather stick needles in my eyes than use them again.
They won't even get their stupid ass dish off my house. A really think they should be sued by someone...anyone interested?
