My satellite signal with D* with my samsung HD receiver was giving me trouble yesterday finding a satellite signal. At 8:28pm everything died. Well then I call for tech support and they of course cant do anything. They said the next thing to do is they need to send a technician out at my expense of 70 freakin dollars. Or I could just pay 30 dollars and enroll in their maintenance fee of $7.99 monthly. I have been a Directv customer for 8 years. I dont have anything against technicians. But why should I pay a fee! I am already shelling out 63 dollars monthly for the privilege to watch tv. Does cable charge to send out a technician?I dont think so. Some may say that well they charge higher prices than satellite. Let me tell you satellite tv service started low but prices have crept up there. I think directv needs to take better care of their customers. I ts not like I am asking for a check for 500 dollars. I want my receiver fixed now. So now since I have a service plan with best buy, I have to send it off to get it repaired which is utterly ridiculous. I will be out a week and half to two weeks without tv.
