    I can read your posts, easily. I just tend to not take them as seriously. Using auto-pay is part of the requirement. You don't want to use it? That is perfectly fine. No one is forcing you to sign-up for it. Theses are DirecTV's rules. This was a choice made by you...I don't see much point in railing against DirecTV or anyone here.

    I called up, asked for Billing, then Representative. I talked to a nice lady, and told her that I had heard about them getting rid of the HD fee for new customers, and asked if that was available for current subscribers as well. She asked how I heard about it, and I said that it was from a website, then she placed me on hold.

    She came back, sorry that the offer wasn't available for me, but since I've been a loyal customer since 2002 they'd give me $10 off for the next 12 months, and would that be ok? No auto-pay required, or any other changes to my account, so I took the offer and thanked her. Pretty easy for me.

    Maybe in 12 months they'll no longer charge anyone for HD, so I won't have to call and ask again.

    Over 46 months. That's about 16 posts a month.

    I guess math wasn't taught very well at your Alma Mater either.

    Yikes. New members coming on awfully strong lately. Maybe it's just me, but when I newly join a board, I like to get the lay of the land before I start fights and arguments. Sheesh.

    I really doubt they care. They can probably afford to lose a customer that complains about not getting a discount on a service that said customer doesn't even subscribe to.

    It isn't up to them. It is up to you however. There is an offer of free HD for two years for exiting customers with auto-pay and apparently a 12-month offer for those without. It is up to you whether or not you take the deal.

    They offered you EXACTLY what current customers get...24 months free HD. Yet, you declined. Genius! :rolleyes:

    What is switching to Dish Network going to accomplish if you don't want to enroll in Auto-Pay? This is their requirement for new customers who want Free HD for Life:

    **FREE HD FOR LIFE - $10/mo HD add-on fee waived for life of current account; requires 24-month agreement and continuous enrollment in AutoPay with Paperless Billing.
