    I am. I don't want to pay $7.99 for a protection plan when I don't care about upgrade offers!

    I don't know, but the stipulation that prices may change certainly is there.

    Oh, so you do have a choice? Exactly. Case closed. Thanks for proving us right.

    Cause I'm tired of the increases and how they are always trying to make it look like it benefits us somehow. When it doesn't!

    The only thing that was proven here was the Protection plan had nothing to do with your upgrade to a Genie. Your lack of commitment did.

    I manned up and have been with them for 7 years. Out of contract now. I also manned up and called them out on their bullsh!t price increases and they gave me a discount to keep me. You seem to miss the point of this whole conversation.

    When the Directv blinders are on, they miss a lot of stuff.

    Look at my signature genius. Realistically I've had a 18 year commitment with DirecTV.

    Just curious - did they say you would have to agree to a 2 year commitment to down grade your receivers as well?

    On the contrary I haven't. The bulk of the conversation is about people complaining about the terms and conditions of a contract they "willingly" signed with DirecTV and are now complaining about those terms and conditions they agreed to when they signed.

    I don't care either way, because currently I can afford the luxury of pay TV. I live in this crazy world you seem unfamiliar with where we have choices and don't agree to things and later complain about them. Oh wait, you know the world because you CHOSE to not have the PP.

    Its not a win/win for everyone. If I decide I want to swap my R22 for an official HD DVR i go from an owned R22 to a leased HRXX. I do not consider that a win/win.

    Well considering you probably could of got the same deal without the PP offer, I dont think it was that you got fooled as much as it is that you didn't have to pay $2 more a month to have that option if you have a good payment history and have a decent programming package.

    While I agree there was not an upside for me with the PP, I will still carry it as I have mostly owned equipment and like having the ability to leave if I so choose. Sounds like you may want to get owned equipment as well and then you will not have this concern about fee's. Not ETF this way and no non returned equipment fee either. The only fee would be how ever much was pro-rated from that months bill.
