    I pay my Directv service in advance, Directv didn't do anything for me I didn't already pay for. And Directv still owns my equipment. Nice try though!

    What's the cost to downgrade HBO? It's nothing. What's the cost to return advanced receivers to cut your bill? Again, it's nothing. What's the cost to cut the PP before the new rules? Nothing.

    As for the "forced" choices; you AGREED to them.

    Again, you are wrong. DirecTV isn't forcing you to do anything. You have a variety of choices. Accept the price increase, lower your tier package, terminate use of extra receivers and TV's, downgrade to Cable or DISH, cut the cord and go with a OTA, do without TV altogether, write your Congressman. While you may not like any of them you do have a variety of choices at your disposal.

    It doesn't matter if you care or not, you agreed to it. They didn't give you a price lock guarantee.

    How about ask Directv why Mike White can get a 200% pay increase, and I have to pay a 10% bill increase. Whom can I contact about that!

    Did you read the terms and conditions of your DirecTV contract? Did you say to yourself before signing price increases shouldn't apply to me as a new customer. We both know what the answer is.

    Drop 2 receivers you have and you'll save about $12. You have options, you just don't like them.

    There's a reason for service providers needing contracts with their customers. There's also a reason the terms and conditions of those contracts are made available and should be read before signing. What you and others are doing is crying over spilt milk. Man up and take responsibility for yourself.

    The car industry has done very well since then, but that's irrelevant to this discussion.
