  • 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...

  • 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 had Dish Network come out once right after the second DIRECTV guy. He actually took the time to find where the dish could go. I now have Dish Network without any problems. Your loss DIRECTV.

  • Horrible Service

    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! If it rains or the winds blowing you can forget watching TV. I hate I ever went with Direct... More...

When I signed up I had a full time job. I was forced to retire and cannot afford to have cable TV. I can't believe I will have to pay $260 in cancellation fees. I will be unable to pay you in one lump sum it will have to be payments which will delay me getting any TV services.

  • Worst Customer service- property damaged

    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. The tech left... More...

When I spoke to the representative yesterday, I inquired about the new customer charges and asked if I could get that or to lower my bill. I was told no. I asked if I cancelled my service and had it started again, could I get the great rate that the new customers got (remember, I have been with them for 10 years). I was told no, that I would be a returning customer. I then told them to disconnect my account on 8/8/15. This morning on 8/2/15 NO TV SERVICE. I called to... More...

    I opened a DIRECTV account years ago. In the past year my husband added a contract to the account, unbeknownst to me. 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. They have proof he made the account change and I never added him as an authorized user when he added the contract to our account.

He raised his tone and got very hostile while my mother did nothing to provoke this. She had explained the billing error to the lady before him and everything was fine, then he got rude and started saying these things about her. Tonight, we called because a station was down.

    I regret changing from my cable service to Direct TV. I have been overcharged on every single bill when I was "promised a bill of $79.00 a month.

  • 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...

    This is by far the worst cable service I have ever had to deal with. Every month it seemed like I was being charged for something new. The worst part was that they would give you absolutely no heads up or time to correct things before they billed you for the extra charges. It was just a guessing game of why my bills was an extra 40$. Every time I did try to call and correct things, I could not understand the person I was talking to making communication very hard. Also, if you want to cancel your service you might need to set an extra month aside just deal with them. They called me twice a... More...
