    Communism? Seriously? You obviously don't understand what communism really is. It's also insulting to call a man who fought for our country a communist.

    Communists are people who have nothing and want to share it with everyone. No one is forcing you to agree with price increases and stay with DirecTV or any service provider. It's "your" choice.

    It makes perfect sense. You either do with or do without.

    So are cell phones and electricity. But almost every American has both, along with TV service! Doesn't mean they shouldn't be affordable.

    You can certainly drop the 3 listed freely.

    One's income dictates what's affordable.

    First of all it wasn't directed at a person. The claim that we all agree to the price increase ( when really we are forced to agree to avoid penalty), is a communist act.

    And I'm the one with the understanding issue. :nono2:

    You just said we chose the option to have HBO, PP, MRV. I have chosen not to have HBO but I have to pay the price increase anyways. I am pretty sure the base package increase is helping pay for Directv to carry HBO even though I don't subscribe to that channel. I also don't have MRV but I am sure that is included in the general base package increase also.

    What about my Genie and HD DVR, can I drop those for just NON DVR boxes to save on money?

    Again, watch my fingers, I'm going to type slow. No one, I repeat, no one is forcing you to stay with DirecTV or any service provider. You have choices. You may not like your choices but they are available for you to take advantage of.

    Yes, when people are locked into a contract and Directv raises prices you have 2 options. Accept it or pay the cancellation fees. Sounds really fair doesn't it. If they raise rates on you while under contract then they should give you the option to cancel without penalty or honor the pricing until your contract is up.

    There's a difference between being pretty sure and 100% correct. Given that you're merely stating your opinion.

    You surely quoted him and countered his post as being communistic. Force is an incorrect tern, because you have an option. People under communism have no option.

    You're now just trying and reaching for any excuse to be right. Yes, you can drop those.

    You're not paying for HBO, thus, saving money. You can assume all you want.

    Oh come now. It's common knowledge that this world we live in is neither fair or perfect. Before you signed with DirecTV their terms and conditions were made available to you. Shame on you if you signed without reading them.

    No I didn't !!!! Mysteryman didn't raise the prices. Directv did! and forced you to pay or pay to get out. Those are your choices!

    Also you want to spout off we have choices , I am right cause your either paying to DOWNGRADE, paying a monthly increase, or paying to leave. So either way you are forced beyond your bounds.

    Oh, the penalty we all agreed to when we chose to have the service? Don't make agreements you're not forced to make and be mad at the other party. You chose it; live with it or cancel and pay.

    If someone came to you for a service and signed a contract with you saying they'll pay you $2,000 to do a service, then you did exactly what you agreed to do but your customer said sorry I'm only paying you $25. You wouldn't say ok this contract means nothing would you?

    Yep, they also showed me a 24 month breakdown of the monthly price throughout my 24 month commitment. Guess what its $14 per month Higher then what was stated for my remainder 12 months.
    I don't care if price is subject to change, Shouldn't apply to new customers signing up under a commitment for the first 24 months. So they flat out lied about their prices in the last 12 months! and added a Bogus RSN fee, and Raised the advanced receiver fee.
