I have spoken to them regarding an additional box for a room three times. Each time I am told something different. They keep extending my upgrade. First it was at 1 year then I am told 18 months now they just told me 24th months. Comcast is worth the difference. Anyone know how I can drop my DirectTv 6 months shy of contract expiring. Please.

Having problems with playlist having to reset box daily to be able to scroll down, the supervisor Jennifer is telling me this is a know problem, that they have been aware of this sine Dec. 10. 2014, I suggested replacing the
box, she telling me it's that particular box. That the engineering dept has been working on this for months. I'm shocked, in other words you are telling your customer you don't have answer. My answer if those enginneer can't cant resolve this fire them, get someone that do the job.

My promise to Direct TV. If we can not watch the New England play off game today, we will cancel Direct TV. That's my promise to you.

According to DirecTV Corporate Governance area of the website. Ellen Filipak is not who complaints need to go to. It is Ed Balcerzak. This is directly from their website.
"If you've contacted Customer Care and require additional clarification or support, contact Ed Balcerzak, Sr. VP of Customer Care. "

watching HMMC channel. The shows are great, but why should pay extra for this channel, than have to watch commercials.
Than when the commercials come on I need to lower the Volume. In Wisconsin it is illegal to change the volume higher for commercials. Hope someone brings suit against this. Also, every little rain, or snow my system fails. Can't wait till my contract is due, as I feel cheated by Direct TV and their policies.

If you live in NEW ENGLAND do NOT sign a contract with DIRECT TV. The smallest disturbance in weather will knock your reception out from one hour to as much as a full day.
My reception is lost from once to several times every month. I plan on buying out my contract and returning to cable.
A small monthly savings is not worth the constant aggravation ... life's too short.

I hate these people. All lies since the first time I spoke to them. Wish a class action suit could be filed. I was lied to about their contract and I am tied in for 2 years. I am tired of calling about having to reboot the box before we can even turn it on. They put me thru 3 or 4 different people and then I get a dial tone that the call has been lost. I just want to pull my hair out.

I called to ask if I was going to be installed after 3 weeks of no installation and I was yelled at by a CS rep. It has now been 44 days and no installation. They have my money and I'm afraid to call in fear of being yelled at. I believe this is called stealing.

Dumbing down of America, go to work at Direct TV. Great picture, fuzzy if you ever need to contact the centers. They are trained to always put you on hold so they can ask a supervisor what to do. No training, hiring the bottom 1% in the country. Then if you have any other questions, you will be guaranteed to be forwarded at least three times to the wrong department. How does she keep her job?

I am really disappointed with Direct TV, unless I want to watch commercials there is little else to watch..It's pretty obvious that Direct is only interested in the money they can make from the commercials not providing shows the comsumer's can watch. My son has free antenna TV and has more variety than I have. Everyone I know is saying the same thing..

Been a customer since 2005, move once always had DirecTV, had a problem with a bill and my account was cancelled and sent to collection in a months time even though I paid more than half the bill due with plans to pay the rest the next month. I was sent a early cancellation fee of 400.00 because someone from Directv indicated on my account that I went to Comcast and then came back! Really! now they want me to dispute this with corporate by email or letter. keep in mind a member since 2005!!!!!

Sent a check for payment of $1000 on September 12, 2014. Our bill was 143.35, so a credit balance should have been applied. Instead, we have received a past due notice of $331.80, and our service is being disconnected tomorrow, October 16, if we don't pay. Have spent five hours on phone since Friday, Oct. 10 trying to get this corrected. Spoke with: Kathy, Laura (online), and Alvin. Have also filed a complaint with BBB. I cant believe that there is no one in this company able to check their deposit files with JP Morgan Chase Bank, where the cancelled check was stamped to be deposited by DirecTv, and to post this payment correctly. It is very poor, when people spend time working, pay their bills, and get shafted the way this company has done!!!!

I have had problems from the beginning. When I turn the TV on, I get either agray screen with sound or a screen with colored lines, or a screen with a big wide white stripe. This morning, it took four (4) tries to get it on. When I change channels, the picture comes on then blacks out. I got up this morning and the screen was showing no signal. I turned it off before I went to sleep. This is not the first time for this. The worst part is, I finally talked them into sending me a new receiver..they made me pay $21.00 for shipping..and this is the same thing the old one was doing!!!

I too am getting screwed by Direct TV. They are billing me for NFL Sunday ticket. Single mom, don't watch sports. I HATE football. But, not as much as I hate Direct TV. I am going to Dish and I am going to tell everyone I ever meet how much of a scam Direct TV is. It's weird that they'd be interested in losing a customer of 10 years over $200.

Theyr're doing the same thing to me. Complain loud enough and for every person you talk to, ask to speak to someone over that person. They CAN remove it but they won't reimburse for what they've already charged you. But they won't remove it for this coming bill, which in the last year has gone from $53 to $132. I can't get out of my contract without the fee. I can't stop the draft payment which will come out in two days. And they can't saying they can't make things happen when the truth is that they don't want to. Directv is greedy and simply does not care if their customers are upset with them, because there's just someone else to take our place when we leave.
