  • Direct tv: Program Series Auto View Next Episode



    The only issue I've ever had with DTV's programming interface, is a new feature that requires a viewer to choose within 5 seconds, whether or not they want to automatically watch the next episode in a series they are watching. This assumes that a person watches one episode after the other instead of changing to different programming. That's both absurd, and very irritating. Please at least consider revisiting this, in my opinion, poorly thought out feature. More...

  • Poor service and extra charges at Direct TV



    Been with Direct TV for 12 years; having problems with both my DVRs freezing up and shutting off not getting total programs recorded. I call to get upgrade because system is very obsolete and was told it would be $397.00. I have paid for the equipment protection for all of these years and felt this was ridiculous. So I found that Dish would give me the wireless system including install for $119.0 I switched and what options I never knew existed. Called to cancel Direct TV service and they will send me a box to send back recorders but WHO IS GOING TO REMOVE THE DISH ON THE SIDE OF MY... More...

  • Directv



    Absolutely worse experience ever with a cable company! It's basically a huge scam. Called to enroll into their supposed "bundle" package. Was told that I'd receive a guaranteed 2 year locked rate until I received my first bill. It was substantially higher than what I was told I'd be charged. I was also told that after the first year my rates would increase, so the rate I got initially wasn't accurate. Nevertheless, after literally being on the phone with them for over 5 hours, yes 5 hours, they said they couldn't do anything and that I'd be charged by... More...

  • DirecTV can't get rid of them.



    I was with DirecTV for about 6 years. A little pricey but otherwise it's great, quality TV UNTIL you have to disconnect! I moved into a new place but could not get reception there. To make a long story short I returned my equipment on time, in an unpadded bag they sent and dropped it at the PO as requested. Since then I have had to chat with them on line and call them 2 times to try and get them to stop harrassing me. I have recieved automated calls as well as 3rd party calls warning me I could be charged for the equipment. Congratulations DirecTV. You have turned a customer who used... More...

  • Now payng two satellite TV bills



    28-Feb-15 In December I was talked into trying DirecTv by a young woman representing ClearSat-Washington state (she was going door-to-door with another young man). I asked her about switching from Dish Network, to which she replied %u201CWe%u2019ll take care of that%u201D! The point is-we are now being charged two bills every month and HughesNet wants $600 for no payments to Dish. To top it off, the installer removed the Dish unit without asking!!!

  • Cancelling service



    Today I spent much time and talked to 3-4 people before getting answer. I was told when we took out service that they would require all receivers returned if we ever disconnected. Last week I called to disconnect and was told that they would send boxes for 4 receivers and if I didn't send them back quickly with remotes and any wiring they would charge my credit card for any not returned. They sent one box for one receiver! Today when I talked to the 3/4 people on the phone after getting to supervisor I was told they didn't want nor would they take 3 of the receivers back.... More...

    Horrible Company. Today 2/20/15 at approx. 12:40 P.M. I called to pay my bill by phone. I told the person I spoke to that I wished to pay my bill & she said she would transfer me, but at that point she began to give me a sales pitch about purchasing an equipment maintenance plan. I told her I was not interested & asked that she please transfer me, she said okay & then again went into her sales pitch. Again I asked that I please be transferred. This went for several more attempts on her behalf & then I was told she could not transfer me. I then asked for her name or... More...

    I currently have no ABC for zip code 52002. I've dealt with this before with Dish Network but only for less than a week, I move to Direct TV due to this and now it's been since Jan. 6 and we are still without. I am ready to switch again unless something gets changed. I would say about 90 percent of my interest is this station due to programming and the local news. I would gladly appreciate some honest news promptly. I will be sending the same message to my local ABC (Kcrg) station. Thanks More...

    I had to switch to Direct TV due to a new contract with my apartment complex. The channels in the "basic package" are all religious channels, and home shopping channels. NOTHING that was in the Brighthouse basic package. I'm literally insulted by the garbage that is included, so I chose to upgrade to continue watching the shows I was used to.

    Made a payment agreement plus made a payment, next payment was to be made within a week and half. Agent got the proper permissions for agreement, guaranteed my service until the next payment due date agreed upon. The very next day they discontinue service, stating that they had the right to change the payment agreement without notice. Not only that they added more fees to my bill. I told them if they would not honor the agreement then to forget my service permanently.

    Direct TV states that they are cheaper then Dish, yes the channel packages are about $10.00 cheaper. BUT Direct TV nickles and dimes you to death. If you want HD $10 a month (Dish was free) oh you want to watch your recorded shows on a different tv in the house that's another $3 a month (Dish is free) oh you have to move and haven't been with Direct for over a year that is going to cost you almost $200 and no we don't do payments on that.

    I signed up for Direct TV because I was told that there are thousands of free movies that even comes out before Netflix. It does come out before netflix, but you have to pay for it. Free movies, not really. You have to pay for everything. I also got the Genie receivers for the bedrooms, but it was total trash. The screen freezes a lot and it's a hit or miss. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesnt. I keeps logging in and out, poor picture quality and the TV freezes a lot. Absolute garbage and false advertisement.

  • horrible service



    Directv will surely excite you with a very well organized speech on selling a two year contract with the additional free movies for a couple of months. Little do customers know that this is only a fraud for them to charge your account without your say after those months are over. I clearly asked the worker to make sure the movies get canceled when the free trial months are over, but only to find out i was being charged $50 extra. It is unfair for customers to be charged for something they cannot control. When you start a contract with directv with free movie trial it isn't an option... More...

Tuned in to one just to see and it looked like a high school game shot on a camcorder. 2. They only offer their lousy games in the afternoon; I guess nobody plays football after 4 pm. 3.
