  • Horrible Service

    I had Direct Tv installed on 8/01/2015,since then we have never had 150 channels purchased,always a 771 signal loss somewhere.About three weeks after Dish was installed we started getting the 771 signal loss,this was on all channels,even locals,second time,we experienced the same thing again in about 3 weeks.Direct tv keeps putting a bandaid on the situation,instead of changing out the eye,or maybe a loose wire somewhere.We are experiencing all channels lost again,771 signal loss,a supervisor set up an appointment for 9/15/2015 for the afternoon,nobody showed up.Spoke to another Supervisor...

  • Direct TV won't fix signal

    I have been without cable for 3 weeks now. The earliest they could get a tech. out was 2 weeks and when he showed up he sat in our driveway supposedly try to call me and left. We were home because we watched him drive away. I have spent countless hours on the phone with these idiots just trying to get my cable fixed. They are the worst type of people I've ever dealt with. I now have Comcast and since direct TV won't let me out of the contract I have them also. But instead of wasting more of my time with the them I just am not going to reschedule them and they will reimburse me... More...

  • Direct TV rep Zane cancelled our football package when we asked for supervisor

    We were being incorrectly billed for the NFL Ex package when we wanted basic football package. Called customer service and they were inexplicably unable to correct the error without sending me to a specialist. Specialist "Zane" noted our bill was currently due and he could not correct the error. I stated the error was IN the billing and that it should be corrected - as the problem was Direct TV's. Zane said he couldn't do it and had to connect me to a supervisor. I said no problem, I would be happy to hold. Zane came back and said he had just gotten permission... More...

  • How customer service is done

    I recently moved to a new apartment and due to some of those strangest circumstances I was unable to get time warner cable. I called up direct tv and schedule service. I do not recall the ladies name who handled this call but it was very easy and about as quick as it could be. But with that said within a week one of the receiver boxes has some issues and stopped working. So I called up technical support and talk to the nicest sweetest lady ever, Matesha Owens. She handled the call with the best customer service I have ever had. She managed to get things right and did so all while keeping me... More...

  • Will Lie about services then charge you a fee for their mistake!!!!!!!!

    I was drawn in by the promise of internet and cable. After I signed for services DIRECTV stated that they did not provide internet service in my area, I would have to go through their partner provider. Turns out their partner provider also DID NOT service my area. I was told I needed to research internet providers if I wanted internet. If I wanted to end my contract I would have to pay a $400 cancellation fee! FREE ADVICE! Make sure the provider you are signing up for provides all service they promise and doesn't have to use a "Partner" for internet or phone. More...

  • DirectTV charges to repair their boxes

    We our now into our second DirectTV replacement box. We suffer constant freezing and pixilation of recorded shows. Both times Direct TV determined that their box which they owned failed. Each time they have agreed that the only way for us to get the quality programming they promise is to replace our box. Okay. So far so good. They replace the box for free. So far so good. But, now the Catch 22. They insist that a service tech come out, and regardless of the problem, we have to pay $49 for that, or else instead pay $7 per month or $84 a year for a service contract. Thus, we are out... More...

  • Inept Service, Poor Documentation, Customer Service Reps Lie

    Had Directv installed in November of 2014, It stopped working soon after. In December, technicians sent to house and said problem was with dish but they could not fix it because of snow and ice. After numerous other visits over next few months, they determined issue was actually inside house. Technicians changed out switches and boxes. System still could not obtain Sat 1 signals. Reps said they would send out a supervisory crew. The crew no-showed. When I complained about the no-show, the rep said they would issue a credit once the system is fixed and running. This was May after 6 or 7... More...

    I had DIRECTV installers come out two separate times. Both said I could not get DIRECTV because my trees were "too tall" even though I live in the middle of town.

    I just moved to my new home and decided to try Direct TV. Big mistake! My service has not worked since they installed it. It keeps going out. They will send a technician out but a few hours later, no service. That's why they trick you into a 2 year contract. Then they say low prices, oh no!!! Once they hit you with that equipment rental charge you're paying more money than you would if you had gotten a Time Warner Cables Bundle Deal!! This is no deal and they don't have better service!

    After 8 hours of failed attempts to install service, tech drilled 4 unnecessary holes in the wall of my new house. Customer service refused to credit my account for this huge inconvenience, saying they will only pay up to $150 for the repair but I have to get estimates for and be home for the estimate and the work, missing multiple hours of work. The kicker is the previous owner of the house had directv without holes in his wall and this tech couldn't figure out how to do it after 8 hours and drilled extra holes in the wall before realizing they were in the wrong place.

We are divorcing and I want to change the account to his name, since he is remaining in the home. DIRECTV would not do this. I have to close my account and he needs to open his own account.

  • Direct TV and CenturyLink - RIP OFF

    Unless you plan on doubling your bill for worthless TV and slow internet, do not use Direct TV and CenturyLink. It looks great and all the discounts make sense, but after 12 months both companies practically double your bill. For example, I started off paying about $55 for Direct TV and $35 for CenturyLink internet. Not bad for the package and it made sense since Suddenlink charged the same price for less channels and slower internet. At the 12-month anniversary my cable jumped to $105 and internet to $70 - and no, this was the basic package for internet and the select package for... More...

Worst service i have ever had. Many issues with then throught the years. False charges that i should not have had to pay... Customer service was NO help at all. I was lied to and then when I asked to talk to the employee that told me false statements, they told me they dont know who i talked to last... even though it clearly states before you call that "this call is recorded...". Lied to twice. Im glad I cancelled my service! Never deal with them again!

I decide to get direct tv because my father had it and honestly getting it was the worst mistake. I just moved into a new house and I called direct tv told them what I watched and the channels I needed they installed it and one night after actually sitting down after moving in I relized I do not have any channels I ordered. I called them and and they will not help explained to them the situation that I watch sports and Spanish channels and they told me the dish they gave me was not compatible with what I wanted to watch or the channels I wanted. Now they saying for $143 they can give me another dish. I just want to watch TV not look for life out in space with all the dish I would get on my roof. They screwed up on the installation and now I have to pay for it. Thought of cancelation and they said fee is 450. So price just went up because it use to be 350ish. Dnt know want to do. Just stay away from these thieves.

I know that you have been acquired by AT&T which is one of my least favorite companies as far as customer service goes. I have been a Directv Customer for over 12 years which means I have spent over 12,000 dollars over the past year with Directv. I have always been very satisfied with my service. I have NEVER asked for anything for free. I had guests over at my house on July 18th and wanted to watch a movie. My movie was not loading. I called to find out what the issue was. I got a representative who said that I would need to reset my box. I told him in that case I did not want the movie because we were going to miss the first 15-20 minutes of the movie. My guests were only there for one night and would not be back the next night to watch the movie. I asked that he just credit back the 5.99. He totally argued with me for a long, long time over $5.99 and said that this would be my only one time courtesy for the life of my account. Really? After spending over 12,000 dollars with this company over 12 years. I can honestly say that I deserve better service than that. On TOP of that, we were not even going to watch the movie because it was too late. I was not even asking for ANYTHING for free. The supervisors name was David. His employee ID# was TPCL969843. I had asked him for the previous girls name and ID number that I had spoken to, because she was not even going to give me a credit at all. I had to ask for a supervisor, which is totally unheard of for 5.99 for a movie that we were not even going to watch because the Directv system was not working properly! Needless to say. This was a horrible experience and I am looking for a new company to provide our TV service. I asked for a manager or a Director at the time I was on the call. DAVID said that he would have to have someone call me back. I said ok, but if I do not hear back from someone, I will blog and cause chaos all over the place regarding the service that I received. He obviously did not believe me..........

Direct tv is getting disgusting. They keep taking away tv channels but get no discount on our monthly bill. All they do is take and take some more and get nothing in return. All these infomercials they have on are a big fat joke that we are paying for. Give us some good quality tv worth watching maybe you would not be losing long time devoted customers. I am seriously thinking of dropping direct tv when the weather gets good, like April or may.

Another unhappy customer s. Bean, by the way, weather nation stinks, bring back the weather channel and insp. Get rid of all the garbage you have on!!!!!!

I just recently changed back to Direct TV. This was the biggest mistake I ever made. I'm reading about other peoples complaints and it is what other people experienced. Unfortunately I should have read the reviews before I switched. I learned a valuable lesson on that one and will switch as soon as possible to a provider who wants my business and is willing to provide me with a technician if I ask for one. Seriously, I have satellite TV for about 10+ years and have several bad experiences, but Direct TV tops it. I called this morning at 7am after nothing that a service which is not even 2 month old again does not work. They had me and my sick husband crawling on the floor for hours insulting my intelligence( Don't I sound smart enough to figure out if my equipment does not have power? Apperatly not. I told this people over and over that we did not have a signal and that we needed to have a technician come out and fix the problem. After arguing for hours with them calling back and forth I was promised by one of their representatives that somebody would come out today and fix the problem. I was told to expect a call within a hour to be told the time the tech would arrive. They called alright and made my sick husband crawl on the floor again knowing full well that he is disabled and cannot do this. I even was promised by the so called representive that this would not happen. Guess what it did and this was all they did. Nobody came out to my house to fix my problem. Instead they tried to talk me in to wait to Thursday, which is impossible for me since I watch the traffic reports before I leave the house in the am since I have to drive to Atlanta and sometimes farther to just go to my job. I need to be informed and this is the only way to obtain this information as well as information on weather not to talk about that after a hard day at work I relax in front of the TV. This is of course not possible due to the incompetence of the Direct TV installers who did not set the Satelite up right and then the incompetence of all the representatives who answer the phone including supervisors. We are paying for service we are not receiving as wellbeing deprived of our oliest form of entertainment and don't even had bad weather etc to cause the outage. The installers not interested to come to Tayorsville unless they have nothing better to do. Don't forget I have the service for not even 2 month and it is not working. When I first signed back up with them they made me all kind of promises which made me leave Dish. I was not told installers would refuse to come out here, because when I first set the services up I set the appointment up for a Friday which would have given me plenty of time to cancel Dish etc, but they played on my husband and called him on Thursday and asked could they come on Thursday. Trying to be nice he agreed. I should have know right then and there something is wrong. Why would I have to make a appointment if I wanted it done on a different day. Then the installer who came had the worst attitude ever. They are nice and make all the promises in the world until you sign up and the nothing. This is unacceptable and I wish to be able to find a Lawyer who will file perhaps a call action law suit or just a regular law suit against Direct TV, because Consumers like me need to be protected. We have rights too. They should not make false promises and the have subcontractors who don't want to do the job and to lazy to come to places where they messed people up previously with not setting equipment up properly and or using faulty equipment to begin with and then refusing to come out here and make it right. I would not be so upset if they just said ok we got cought lying and we will refund your money let you out of the contract and you can go with somebody else. They force me to stay in a contract which was made between I and them with them using false information using practices like not telling people that installers have no interest in coming out here etc. This is calling for a good lawyer. Give people the right information to begin with and don't coax them in a contract with false promises. Also have your installers be more friendly and customer oriented as well as trained well. Everybody I called ther made me repeat everything which was said at least 3-5 times in order to trip as done by the police if they suspect somebody lying, because people are unable to tell the same story 3+ times without it changing, but since there was nothing to lie about I had told the same story over and over like a idiot. They treated me like a incompetent lier and I would tell everybody to read reviews before they sign up with anybody and surly stay away from Direct TV. Signing up with them was the worst decision I made in a long time. Never ever again. Can't wait to get out. Any suggestions what to do???

Well, we originally had Comcast before we moved. We weren't extremely satisfied with them so we decided to try out direct tv when we bought our new home. I called and spoke with their sales person and he asked about my internet. I told him I did not have internet and did not intend on getting it. He told me that was absolutely no problem at all and then continued to sell me on how great the on demand feature is. Well when the tech showed up to hook up our equipment, to my surprise he asks where my internet is. I tell him we don't have it and he says well that's a problem because now you cant use on demand or watch any movies or any of the other features requiring internet. So we give in an get internet. Well no matter what on demand still never works and we're constantly being disconnected, movies don't load, and it just shuts off if we do get a movie or show to start. We were also told we had 30 days to decide if we wanted to keep direct tv or not. So today we call to cancel and they do nothing but fight with us even after we explain everything. We were also told now that we did not have 30 days but instead only 24 hours to decide. That's kind of tough to decide when we didn't even have internet at first. Now they want to charge us almost $500 to cancel and on top of it told me its my problem to get the dish off of my roof now. They're all scam artists and liars. I cant believe places like this actually get business from anyone.

I was given a price for a bundle on 12/10/13,after paying the deposit i was shuttled to their affiliate comp. ATT for bundle service. Was told I had to pay ANOTHER deposit as well as the home phone service (that i thought in paid for in the initial deposit) wasn't available. I decided on cancelling the whole mess and asked for a refund of my first deposit.I was told it would take up to 5 days. i later checked my statement and found not only did they chargec me the first deposit, but an additional deposit (to ATT) as well as the first payment.(done without my card number or authorization!) I contacted direct tv on 12/11/13 to dispute the billing ans was told i had to contact ATT. I did and they had no record of pulling the deposit but after careful review was established that the direct tv "agent" had authorized the deposit without my say so..I have made over TEN hours of calls over the last 6 days to no avail.I have filed a dispute claim with direct tv with no results. I have currently secured a lawyer to settle this.. as of 12/18/13 (6 days after the initial cancellation)I have still not seen my refund.. i would NEVER recommend ANYONE use this company! They are nothing more than a den of liars and thieves!!!

Directv told my family that they would bundle up on a new thing for the system and said all the movie channels and Sunday ticket would be free with no extra cost at all and that great stuff then the family's bills are usually 139.00 then now sense they gave us all this "free" channels and packages and everything now are bill is up to 264.89 which is ridiculous because they added up everything on which was supposed to be free so now they said they will take everything off the next bill and well after everything is over with the free channels i think it is time for us and the family to switch to a different thing because this isn't the only time they have done this to us and i think its pathetic that they screw around with us over this so now i think Directv is one of the worst satellite TV programs out their i feel sorry for whoever has to stick with it and including the customer support they are just as stupid as what we are going through because they think they know everything and wont listen to a dime on what we the customer's are trying to tell them so hopefully after reading this it might change a whole new deal on peoples minds and options on directv like it has done with me and my family never again will i have it in my house id rather have medicom tv now instead of Directv

I signed on with DirectTV a month ago at a Best Buy store where a representative approached me to offer a chance to switch. They said I had free movie channels for 90 days and I was eligible for a gift card rebate with Best Buy. First, I receive a bill for more that I agreed to. I called to clear this up. Then a postcard that I did not quafify for the gift card. I called 800-508-1232, 800-531-5000 & 888-333-7975 where again they were going to transfer me, I asked for a supervisor and was told someone would call me back today or tomorrow. I was told I was not eligible for the gift card because it was outside the time to sign up, the other guy said it was the Best Buy store that did not honor this rebate. Wow, great excuses so I was provided false advertisement. Lmao I have never in my life had to deal with the worst Customer Service ever. These people DO NOT KNOW what they are doing. Not even the supervisor had time to resolve the issue. I am assuming they were on the phone with other complains as I see here must be enormous. Wow!!

DownWithDirec says: (2 years ago)
TERRIBLE! We have had DirecTV for 5 months and they are charging $231 to come out and do 20 min worth of work since we moved so early on in our contract. I talked to a supervisor and they were even absolutely NO help! Just kept telling me that "since I was a new customer they could not do less then $231." She even acted like they were doing me a favor by giving a "discount" from the actual $500 installation fee! WHAT! Who in their right mind can justify $500 for 20 min worth of work! This company is a bunch of crooks and would never recommend them to ANYONE! they would probably charge you $100 to refer a friend instead of give. DO NOT GET DIRECTV! EVER!

Llthomas04 says: (2 years ago)
Wow, now I see why the threat of writing a complaint and canceling service had no affect on the representative at directv. DO NOT deal with them!!! Not only do they treat customers terrible once your under contract but they are crooks!!!! Moving 1 mile down the road and they want 180.00 to move the service. They would rather lose the customer. Wish the CEO's of this company would go on "undercover boss" what they could learn!

NEVER USE DIRECT TV!!! I ordered the "Genie" which they advertise for $39.00 and even quote this over the phone. When you get your bills they are well over $150!!!! They even tell you when they sign you up there is no contract and can cancel at any point in time. I called to cancel since they did NOT follow the quote they gave me. I asked for a manager to call me on 4 seporate occations and the last manager even confirmed no one made an attempt to contact me!! They then told me it would cost $450 to cancel my service and they sent me a contract, which they never did nor did I sign! I disputed this amount and they automatically took the amount out of my account! I have filed with the Better Business Bureau and recommend every one does the same! Crooked business and will scam you out of hundreds of dollars!

I began a two year contract with Directv (Dtv) in December of 2010 & also established shared billing with the telephone service provider in the area, AT&T. In November 2012, I contacted Dtv to inform them that I was moving to a new residence at the end of December, and that I wanted to reduce my service to a minimum of programming for the remainder of my contract. I also asked about the best timing for discontinuing the service at the old address, explaining that I would make my move over the month of December, and finally be staying at the new address in January 2013. The Dtv representitive told me that my contract would be completed by the 3rd week of December (after I prompter her by saying that I would be a free agent before the end of the year), and after that, I could get any promotional offer for discounts or bundling that new customers could get.
I then visited the Verizon (telephone service provider for my new address) through their website, and received an offer for a phone, internet, and Dtv bundle for $113.00 after the installation, shipping, handling, equipment purchase, tax, and fees (O.K., pretty normal set of junk fees). I was offered the same programming I had enjoyed for the past two years for about $45 less (overall with the phone and internet) than I had been paying with this new Verizon bundle, I was stoked!
I ordered the Verizon bundle the last week of December and the phone and internet was ready and working by the 28th, and Verizon said that the Dtv installer would contact me between the then and the 1st week of January to get the dish and boxes installed. On the 3rd, I contacted Verizon, and asked about the Dtv install, and after some time on hold, I was told that the Dtv part of the order had been canceled, and after another longer hold I was told that because I was already a Dtv customer, the bundle offer was not valid for me and to seek out a TV provider on my own. Several days and attempts later, I got the Verizon and Dtv folks on a conference call ( I know, I was amazed) and after a lot of discussion, it was determined that AT&T has some kind of hold on me through the shared billing.
So, here I am, a free agent (redundantly) wihout a contract with Dtv, effectively a new customer at a new address, and I am denied promotional discounts due to an association with a 3rd party contracted with Dtv to process billing for them.
I have enjoyed the filleting the whiners get at this post, and would hope for no less if anyone thinks that I am wrong for being convinced that I have highly likely cause for seeking damages from either AT&T of Dtv or both. Hit me with your best shot!

We have had directtv for about four years now and have very little to complain about. We are an elderly couple who Extremely enjoy The Game Channel. We find ourselves staying up til all hours of the night playing slingo and other games. It will be dearly missed in our household. I hope directtv will reconsider canceling this channel. Let us be the first to know if you reinstate it. :(

All lies from the beginning all the salesman wanted is to get your credit card number as fast as they can.
How can this business exist, I will never stop finding places on the internet to give them bad reviews and I will tell everyone that i know to stay away from DirectTV.

Is there anyone out there listening to us victims of our complaints? I think the State Attorney General should look into Direct TV's practices.
They say we should read the fine print. Rightly so, but when you are talking about a person's bank account or credit card, this type information should be spoken to potential customer.
I consider this illegal unless you were made verbally aware at the time of accepting the terms.
When the conditions which they deem important, they read to you for acceptance, they fail to mention something so "mundane and unimportant" as money or bill payment for services or your credit being maxed out or your account is thrown into "NSF" mode.
Where do we need to start? DirectTV is literally robbing its customers.

I have been a Direct member for 6 years. Over the last several years the service has gotten worse and prices have steadily climbed. It got to the point that over half of my channels where not coming in and was told it would cost $100 to move my dish.I finally had enough and cancelled my service and told them to send my final bill. Now the person I talked to while closing my account told me I would recieve my final bill and have time to pay my bill. They took money out BEFORE I even recieved my final bill, they took $45 which happened to over draw my account. when I called them they said there was nothing they could do and was informed I had had plenty of time to pay(I still haven't recieved my bill). So I asked how much I still owed and was told $139.76. I made the payment Friday,October 5, 2012. As I'm making my payment online I notice that there was an additional charge of $63.71 on my bill. I paid $140.00 and called them again. The guy I spoke to said that it was PPV charges from 2010. I spent an hour on the phone and was finally told that it would be taken off and I would have a zero balance. I asked if he was sure and that my account wouldn't be charged again. he assured me that it was taken care of. I just checked my account this morning and saw where they withdrew the $63.71. I tried calling and was told that once my account was closed they couldn't refund any money, so I asked for a supervisor. After a hour on the phone the supervisor finally got on the phone and said they were valid charges for PPV from 2007. I was I thought I was told 2010. He said no it was from 2007 and that I would not be refunded my money. When I asked to speak to someone above him, he says "there is no one above the supervisor" and hangs up. So frustrated!!!! How can they get away with stealing people's hard earned money???

I just hate how direct tv reel you in with their packages. First they promise that you will pay a flat rate pay for one year, then they say they need a credit or debit card on file that way they can pull the money off every month. Now the for the first three months were cool they lived up to the promise of a flat rate pay ( which in this case was 29.95), then all of a sudden the fourth month rolls around and my bill goes up to fifty, then fifty became sevnty, and so on until eventually it reached one-hundred and twenty. So just now i was flipping through the channels and i notice how sorry as direct tv is constantly comparing their uck butt ass prices to dish network, can you believe they hd the nerve to talk about how dish network raised thier prices after three months? Its bullshit reality check direct tv and all you sorry ass money hungry trick representatives, FIX YOUR OWN PRICES BEFORE YOU START TRYING TO GLORIFY YOURSELVES AS BEING BETTER THAN ANY OTHER CABLE COMPANY, THE TRUTH IS YOU MOTHERFUCKAS SUCK. And i sure cant wait til my contract is up with you BITCHES. Its a damn shame how direct tv trick people into low prices and then lock them into a two year contract. Get your SHIT together dirct tv.

I got a co worker to switch to direct TV after I told him about how cheap and awesome direct TV was or I thought it was. So the refer a friend sounded awesome he gave them my info and about a week or so later magically the information is not in the system so not only did we get lied to we are both stuck with these direct TV for 2 years and don't have a clue what we will be charged month to month. Customer service is just flat outrude and could care less about the customer just wants to get off the phone as soon as possible. I don't know how a company can be in service for this long treating customers the way they do

We've been loyal customers for years. I used to be someone who would rave over directv and tell them not to use anything else. Well recently we fell on real hard times. Both my husband and I had lost our jobs and had no money whatsoever. We couldn't pay the bill so they cancelled the service. Now 2 months later without having service at all from them they have overdrawn our account over $300. I contacted my cousin-in-law cause she is a at home tech person for directv. She told me to call billing. I did the service was closed for the day. I told her this and she said it doesn't close til 1am. So it was like what utter bull. Then she's proceeding to tell me all the bs on the agreement and how they used the cc attached to our account. I was like we didn't have a cc attached to our account. So basically they took whatever cc well acutally our debit card that we had paid the bill with in the past and attached the payment without prior notice and without autorization. I'm so furious because I wasn't trying to avoid the bill it's just we've had no money and what little we've gotten from selling things has gone to buying diapers and wipes and food for our baby and other child. I was actually happy because I just got hired at a new job a few days ago and start this week, and now I get to go into this job with our account over drawn, nothing of any real value left to sell to even come up with $300 to cover the cost, and not knowing when my pay periods will be, so yeah nice big F YOU came from them today.

See I never used local cable because I didn't think they had the extra cartoon channels, etc like directv did. Well I just added internet services last week from the local cable company because my husband had finally gotten a job and got his first paycheck. I decided to just add the cable service for tv too because I wanted to be able to watch the olympics. I was between directv and the local cable, but decided to call the local cable to see what deals they had. Let's just say I'm super Happy with the local cable company not only do they have the extra channels, but they have on demand, we have the hd channels and love 'em. I've been catching up on some shows I've missed, etc. We will never ever go back to directv. They are simply awful, we paid for so many channels we never watched, etc. I also love the fact that the local cable still has all the channels that directv just screwed it's customers out of. Their excuse cause they didn't want to charge their customers extra because the networks wanted more money. Yeah like that makes sense. Let's drop 25 channels and still charge customers the same price eventhough they no longer have access to those channels. It doesn't really surprise me. I've been trying for months to get into their at home techs so I could work and provide for my family and be home with my kids. All my equipment passed their tests. Well they won't hire me saying I'm not qualified to do the job eventhough they have training. So I'm not qualified but someone who's not worked in 20+ years or who was retired but can't afford to live on social security and can't use a computer well is? That's who they mostly hire is elderly people who don't know how to use a computer. Most of the calls in to tech are to someone's home eventhough they're supposed to pretend they're in a office. Well I'm glad you didn't want to hire someone who does have some experience and definately knows how to use a computer, type, and has done customer service and sales as a call center rep before. So glad cause I'm going into a much better job in my opinion and directv is just gonna continue to lose customers because they hire inexperienced elderly people to try and solve problems, and yeah generally I think they have only probably 1 in 1000 workers that truly do care about us the customers. My cousin-in-law included as one of the good ones. Regardless as what most people have made for comments on here run the hell away from directv don't walk.

I received a message across my tv screen saying 25 channels were going to be dropped. Is there going to be a price adjustment? & why are there so many B S channels that people don't even watch? There can be one particular channel you like and have to upgrade to a totally different package!!! That is a total ripoff!!! :( If I wasn't ini contrac

After receiving a promo in the local newspaper, we inquired about having direct installed. one thing that was very important to us was the availability of at least one Boston station, which we'd heard were unavailable in our market. After conversations with customer reps we were told that if we subscribed, we'd not only get one Boston station but we'd be receiving two of them as part of our channel line up. It wasn't until installation was complete that we were receiving no signal no from either Boston channel as promised and another call to Direct informed us that both customer reps we'd spoken to earlier were mistaken, there are no Boston channels available in our area.
The following day I discovered that the installation tech hadn't programmed one of my remotes so i called to have him come back and take care of it only to be told that direct doesn't send service people to do the, she'd have to help me over the phone, which i declined. My feeling was that it's not a service call because the installation was never completed by the installer and he should come back and program the remote as part of the installation process as it had been explained.
I'm now considering cancelling my service and having everything removed and going back to cable which in over 35 years, I've never had a problem with..........

After a bad day, calling direct tv was not what I wanted to do. We had been over charged and in need of a new rate. Although we didn't qualify for the promotion b/c it is for new customers only, Dominique (the agent) was awesome! She credited us for the HBO we had cancelled and been charged for and she got our monthly bill rate down $20. All in all she helped knock $40 off the monthly bill. We were ready to go to Dish but she saved us :). The gentleman we spoke to before her had a great personality and was helpful as well. Great experience!!

I am a new customer to Direct TV and am already regretting my decision. When I first spoke to a employee on the phone one of the things I wanted to make sure you had was on demand, which I was told you did, at no time was I told you had to have a high definition box to receive it. When I called last week I asked about it and the credit for being a auto pay customer and was told now that I am a customer I could not get the credit. Had I been told up front about needing the box and that with the auto pay credit it would of not really cost me any more I of course would of gotten it. I have several neighbors that were thinking about switching to Direct TV but I will now not be recommending they do so. I just wish I would of been informed in the first place, I was told I was going to
get a service now that I don't!! D tv did get back with me and said they were sorry but could not change anything!

I have had direct tv for a long time and recently upgraded and of course had to sign a new contract. I regreted doing this immediately as I had to call several times when my cable went out. They actually had a 7 day repair window - can't believe that. I was also told on two occassions that I would get a credit but never did. Now, I am moving - the people that I am moving in with already have cable provider - and DTV is trying to charge me to disconnect. This move wasn't planned at the time I upgraded and I am not going to take direct tv into a home that already has cable. I need to get to someone at Direct TV to waive this. Their service is horrible and i would never ever use them again nor recommend them.

The installers must be paid by the number of jobs thjey do in a day. They run the cables the quickest way they can like punching a hole in the ceiling closet and dropping the cable or by drilling thru your floor when DISH ran the cables inside of the wall. I recommend DISH network for installation practices.

Directv has F&%$ED me out of THOUSANDS of dollars over the past 10 years. I wouldn't recommend them to Osama Bin Ladin. I just hope that the NFL will offer there Sunday Ticket package to other cable providers. that the only reason i put up with their crap for so long. I recently concelled my service because you pay hundreds of dollars for a bunch of channels you don't even bill was $180 a month and i have absolutly no movie channels. What a freakin rip off. F%&K Dierctv!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My problems with this company are similar to the ones above.
At first it started out with a "promotion" deal that they offer and it doesn't automotically come off when the promotion is over and you are responsible with charges you are not aware of.
Next, I decided to change the way I was paying from switching from my debit account to credit card and they changed the date the automoatic transaction was to be made and AGAIN did not inform me and refused to refund my account even though the error was theirs.
Then, I received a bill that had been increased by $10 because I no longer wanted automatic payments taken from my account because they screwed me over before.
I am cancelling. I would rather spend my dollars to be free of that lousy company even if it means I am without cable. No company should take advantage of their consumers this way. I cannot believe they are still in business.
Also, their connection always goes out any time it rains or there is bad weather present.
DirecTV is the absolute worst compnay I have EVER dealt with.
I would NOT recommend them to anyone!

I recently moved from Texas to Arkansas and decided to leave Dish and try Direct TV, my main reason was to get NFL Sunday ticket. We were lead to belive that new customers received this free for the 2011 season. We planned the move months in advance, and were told by the Direct TV sales people to order the installation as early to ensure we would get the date we needed after move we moved in. I was even assured by the installers that I would get the NFL Sunday ticket when the football season started. I was also ensured that I would be able to pause a show in one room and continue it in another room. The service was hooked up on July 27th. I have been out of town since the 2011 football season began and could not wait to watch the football games at my house this Sunday. Well guess what not only can I not pause a show in the living rom and watch it in the den, I can not pause any show in any room but the living room. The other three receivers are about as useful as a cable box. But here is the kicker no NFL Sunday ticket....When I called the customer service people(who by the way do not understand the meaning of customer service) they were rude, uncareing, and would not listen to my complaint at all. After talking to serveral people here is what they say- The NFL Sunday ticket offer did not start untill August 1ST, THATS 4 DAYS AFTER THEY INSTALLED MY SERVICE if I had know that I would have waited the 4 days. After I said that they said it would not have mattered since I scheduled the install in June. at thier urging to secure the installation. Additionally the phone number I was given when I moved here was tied to another account so when I called to make a payment using the automated service a gave my home phone number as instructed they applied my payment to a old account, and then had to nerve to demand payment from me before I could voice my concern about not receiving the Sunday ticket. When I told them I had already made a payment they pretty much called me a liar. This is the worst I have ever been treated as a customer. As soon as my contract is up I will do with out TV before I continue one day past the 2 years they tricked me into. After nearly 2 hours on the phone with them today I was insulted by every one of the people I talked to.

I will dedicate my life to telling anyone who will listen how sorry Direct TV is, and how little they care about thier customers.
