  • Worst company and customer Service EVER



    Direct TV has some of the WORST service you will ever find. I have been a customer since the company was Primestar, over 20 years, and the prices keep going up while the service and customer care keeps dwindling. We are so fed up with the over the top price and the fees. Plus you rent the equipment and then it has NO warranty. You have to pay EXTRA to warranty THEIR EQUIPMENT!! WHAT A SCAM! I have heard that Firestick, Sling TV or Roku is the way to go. Maybe its time to cut the directv cord. VERY unhappy at this point. More...

  • Let the buyer beware



    After 8 years with DirecTV our equipment showed wear and tear. The numbers were worn off the changers. If it rained the service went out. HD went out by itself for weeks at a time. I was told that they would upgrade us for free, new equipment and free install and all for without an increase in cost. We were paying $87 a month. Within 2 months the bill was up to $129. Numerous calls to customer service and we spoke with a dozen different people and supervisors resulted in just frustration. I told them they had breached our contract. I was told that I was now under contract and they... More...

  • Doesn't follow through



    DIRECTV is an absolutely the worst company you can have. I had a representative tell me they would do something came to find out they didn't and then called back and got told they weren't authorized to do that and they weren't going to honor it. This is completely disrespectful and honestly the worst business practices I have every experienced and I will never be a member of at&t or DirectTv again if this is how they treat there customers More...

  • WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR VETERANS EVER



    I have called and spoke to more than three representives about applying for the Veterans Rewards with my veteransrewards card. Instead, I get offered an extended warranty fee in which I already was paying for. Each representative blantly ignored my request for additional help to apply my discount that I have acquired from my recent deployment and payment. When I requested to speak to a supervisor, I was denied. When I requested to be transferred to the office to apply my Veterans reward, I was denied. When I explained and read out loud, the directions provided in order to apply my discount,... More...

    I have never dealt with such an incompetent bunch of people including the managers! They internally cancel appointments without letting you know. You get out of work early and sit for hours and hours waiting for them or for a phone call. Then I called six times and kept being told I would be called buy a dispatcher, which NEVER happened. Finally after 6 calls I was I was told someone keeps cancelling the appointments. Find out the idiots at DirecTV are cancelling the appointments internally and not calling to let anybody know! What a bunch of idiots! Needless to say I no longer have... More...

  • False promises



    I have had nothing but bad service since I have enrolled with Direct TV and I want to cancel it with out having to pay any fees. I have called and complained and was told I would have someone call me within 72 hours and never got a call. I have had nothing but lies told to me from the beginning of the sale on what channels I will be getting and how easy it will be to combine my bill with AT&T. I had issues with installation then issues with combing my bill with AT&T then issues with being able to watch the sport teams that was promised I can watch. The on demand feature sucks if I...

  • Satellite repair service time frame



    We recently had our main genie box go down. All others are dependent on that one box. Called their service dept. and they stated it would take 2 to 3 days to have it repaired. In this day in age that is completely unacceptable. We have been a loyal customer for 17 years through all the ups and downs of service disruptions. It seems you guys are more interested in acquiring customers Han servicing your loyal existing customers. We are very dissatisfied and are now in talks with sling tv to stream our channels and ditch the dish once and for all. I explained this to a rep and we... More...

  • Directv equipment doesnt work



    To Whom it May Concern> I have directv and for more than a decade, but this doesn't seem to be of any value. I called to request replacement of the box receiver, which was slow, very slow, sure I was send a new one. I started the installation, and at a step in which the system does a test to review satellites position to channels in view, errors showed up. I repeatedly try calling one day, two days, spending long times on the phone, I even talked to a manager Mr. Gerardo who told me I had to pay 90 dollars to get a technician to help me. The issue here is that the receiver that was... More...

  • DirectV DVR Disk SpaceWarning message



    We have had DirecTV DVR%u2019s for a long time and really enjoy the options they provide. However, a recent program change has affected my enjoyment of the DVR. A %u201CDisk Space Warning%u201D message appears when disk space availability gets to 10% of capacity or below. The only way to remove this message is by clicking on an %u201COK%u201D icon button to unlock the screen. The TV screen is locked until the OK button is selected and this happens every time a new screen selection is made with the remote control. This is VERY annoying and disruptive to TV viewing.

  • Poor Service



    After several years of reasonable service, our when watching a program, the screen would freeze for many seconds, then eventually starts up again. Also when viewing recorded programs, the screen would breakup and go blank. After some time we would fast forward and pick up the program many seconds further into the program . Called and all I got was that they could not do anything unless they knew it was on a "national station." They strongly implied that I would have to play for a service call if a technician had to come out, or I could purchase a warranty. To me, it looks... More...

  • DIRECTV/ATT Installation Issues and Management



    I did a bundle with DIRECTV and ATT for internet and cable. DIRECTV has now sent two people out for cable installation and it isn't finished. On top of that ATT said they'd waive my installation for bundling and didn't waive it so I had to call and get them to remove it. I talked to a supervisor to try and figure out why the installation wasn't getting completed and he got mad at me!!! I've never been treated so poorly by a manager. I just want my service done!

  • Inquire about TV and Internet service



    After receiving promotional literature for Direct TV and AT&T Internet service, I spent over 40 minutes and 3 phone calls to be informed that AT&T did not service my area and since I was a former client less than 24 months ago I had to be transferred to another department for Direct TV service. I did not have the patience or time to start answering the same questions (as with the previous three representatives) with another agent all over again! Their service personnel seem to be very disorganized and there is no communication or continuity between agents. More...

  • Direct TV is a nightmare



    We have problems with direct tv's connection. Their price kept going up, and when we called about it they lied to us. So I cancelled their service and requested the boxes to return their equipment. It took 8 days to get the Box to return the equipment and another 5 days to get it picked up. I was also told that the final bill would be mailed to us. We have never received it so we went on line and saw that they charged us a late charge. When I called them about it they kept me on the phone for an hour. They said no to crediting the late fee and hung up on me. More...

  • Being charged a termination fee (Same house- Different Account #)



    5/23/2017 To whom it may concern, I am writing on behalf of my current situation. My husband and I have been with Direct TV for over 20 years. We previously held service in AZ. Recently, he received a job which caused him to move away from our family. We decided that I would assume all the bills at the house and he would establish new bills under his name as we are moving toward a divorce. As I have begun this process with other companies, it has been fairly easy. He made a call, added me to the account and I would call and take him off. Even with Verizon I was able to split the bill... More...

  • Directv channels



    With the skyrocketing prices of Directv, they need to make things a little easier and customer friendly when it comes to their packages. I have been a Directv customer for years and the one thing that really bothers me is the fact if you purchase a certain package, other channels you enjoy watching aren't available with that certain package. Directv needs to allow its customers to purchase channels separately if they choose to do that. There's only two channels that I want that is not available with my current package and if I want those TWO channels, I would need to upgrade or... More...

  • DIRECT TV Warranty Scam



    I have had Direct TV for 2 days. Upon installation the techs told me I had a free warranty for 3 months and after that I would have to pay for it. That's insane! If the equipment fails, you replace the junk free of charge, I shouldn't have to pay for a warranty. Also, I wasn't told that I would no longer have caller I.D., which I pay for. Please fix this problem and end your warranty scam. More...

  • Directv customer



    We've been with directv for years. Never had a major issue. They always solved problems if they came up. Recently, we signed up to stay under contract with them for 2 more years with the same price every month for those two years. At the start of 2017, the bill was more than the agreed upon price. We didnt order any movies or anything extra. Two more months of a raised price. We call to question the billing. Since they had policy changes, they felt it was their right to change their contract with us at their leisure. Our two years were not up. What total bull! They are liars! Do not... More...

    I signed up for Direct TV about 6 months ago. My package included up to 4 receivers at no additional charge. At the time I only needed one. I asked the salesman if I could add another receiver later and he told me that would be NO problem. I contacted Direct TV today and was told it would be $120.00 charge to send me another receiver. I explained to them the above and was told I should have accepted the other receivers at the time and when I needed them I could use them. Ridiculous! Now I'm stuck with them for two years with one receiver. When I asked to speak with a supervisor... More...

After my bill got raised close to a 100 a month for a basic package we canceled service. Months later they send me another Bill for movies we watched in 2015.
