Prime Star / DirecTV October, 1994. Original equipment was purchased from Circuit City.
Im a installer and after coming up on this thread iv tried to pay attention to how long some of the customers I come across have been around, I live in a rural area so alot of the places I go have only had satellite as a option and alot is still the only option. I have run into several 16, 15, 14 year customers. But the only one I know for a fact older than them signed up 11/20/1994, I forgot how many digit account number. Will post back if i run into some older accounts.
As I mentioned above, 19 years with D* (October 30, 1994); my account number is six digits, 14xxxx. In my area of Georgia, I have the options of Charter, AT&T Uverse, Verizon, and Dish. I prefer D*. I started with equipment which costs more than all the D* stuff I currently have.
Started 4/25/1995. Purchased RCA Equipment and Dish from a friend Who had a TV sales and service. He had told me a year or so previous that a small dish system was coming as I had used a Big dish that he had installed way back before HBO went black.
Did a self install and had to search an 11/2 acres property for signal, lots of tall fir tree to the south.
Had to get locals be cable as we had trees to the north and not good signal from roof top antenna.
Many chnges since then.
I believe I've been with Directv for about 13 years. I think there used to be a way to tell when you first signed up on Directv's website but I can't find it anymore.
been here since 1995 March and paid $1060.00 for it but was happy to have it....
March 1998 -- had to get Sunday Ticket as soon as I had my own house. Still loving it and D*
I have been with directv since 3 Mar 95 thats 18 yrs and account number start with 52xxxx
Been with DTV since 1995 - first time in a home with good line-of-sight - really can't miss here in Florida.
I started with DirecTV, I think in 1998, when Bell Atlantic began offering them as a service. After a couple of years of frustration over dealing with Bell Atlantic customer (non) service, I switched to Dishnetwork. During a time of financial difficulty I dropped Dish only to discover within the week that over the air TV was not the answer. Dishnetwork refused to sign us up again even though we had been gone less than a week and still had all equipment. DirecTV was very happy to sign us up again, the only difficulty was that the old account had been through Bell Atlantic and wouldn't allow the CS rep to reinstate me.
Second go round, I've been with DirecTV since about 2004.
been a customer with DirecTV since 2002, until 2007 since my account was converted to "HSP" :righton:
Been with D* since June 1995. Remember paying $600 to $700 initially for an old Sony receiver and a single LNB dish. I installed everything myself. Been with them ever since!
July 1995....account number 63xxxx
Been with Directv since June 1996
March 2012. I switch every couple of years to get the best deals. Dish then direct then dish and so on.
i believe we started in September 1996, with a self install and two receivers.
Just had a failed Genie upgrade install. Waiting ofr wireless clients to be available...the whole install situation, while I understand them wanting to control quality, makes me think about switching to Dish.
8 digit account # starting in 11
1996 for me. My acct# 434xxxx
August 1994, I was 52. Before digital OTA we would get two channels, but only with a 30 foot mast and a rotator. The account is five digit beginning with 22. Now OTA is gone, but with a Genie and three HD DVRs we do get TV, rain or snow. Really got to learn more about this SWiM thingy.
