I received an e-mail from DIRECTV today, stating that effective May 16,2013, the price / fee of the Protection Plan will increase $2. That will make it $7.99. The e-mail went on to state that two new benefits have been added to the plan. 1. Equipment upgrade every two years at no additional cost beyond the monthly charge. 2. Unintentional and Accidental Damage from Handling ( ADH ) of the DIRECTV System. This offer requires a renewed 24 month agreement. I was curious if anyone else on here received this e-mail recently.
