    REALLY?? You're quite certain the OP was not so informed?

    You have no way of knowing what was said, or understood, by either party other than blind reliance on what was posted being gospel. Tsk, tsk!

    Maybe this thread should come to a close now.

    The level of unilateral DirecTV support in this thread is eye-opening. Is there no balance in this forum anymore?

    You don't think anyone has been constructive? Or, do you just see the negative?

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Sometimes in force, and sometimes in numbers.
    There is an ebb and flow to every thread that starts like this one. And your assessment of it's contents a predictable result. Every one always starts with vitriol, and ends with "You're a bunch of meanies". Par for the course.

    Oh, there has been constructive posts, there are in just about every thread. However they are, with increasing frequency, getting dwarfed by the "how dare you criticize DirecTV" posts. Just my opinion, nothing more.

    There are quite a few of the usual haters as well. But I agree the level of civil and constructive discourse is not high....but the tide could turn.

    Nope. Any post that can even remotely be construed negative is descended on by the same pack of wolves. A quick glance and you'll see it is the same people over and over. Forum is less and less enjoyable.

    DirecTV (like many other companies) spends zillions of dollars on glossy advertising but there always is "the fine print"! For example, Time-Warner constantly pushes their $29 cable package but always forgets to mention their "box lease fee" and, of course their 5% "franchise fee". A hefty installation charge is also missed in the big print headline.

    DirecTV goes out of their way to make new customers "jump through hoops" to get all the best deals. Submitting rebates (on a certain schedule), not changing programming package until the rebate is over, hiding various formerly-itemized charges using undecipherable descriptions like "advanced receiver fee", giving free premium channels which suddenly revert to full price after a few months, fooling people into thinking they own their receiver when they "purchase" it on the web, etc. They also conveniently fail to mention that a broken leased receiver can be replaced for only a $20 S & H fee but instead push their service contracts.

    This is all right there in writing, of course, but who reads the "fine print"? Certain not the starter of this thread!!

    Where do people come up with this Nonsense stating that a Poster is a Directv Employee when they have no facts to back that assertion up. :nono2:
