    I don't want to argue either; heck, I got on here to vent a little and gain some insight, didn't realize I'd be defending the price of my DTV bills.

    The sad thing is I used to love DTV. It was a great company. I loved the HD, the Sunday Ticket was amazing for a football fan, and the prices were very worth it compared to cable. Just felt like as time goes on they are less and less willing to work with me. Oh well, water under the bridge. I cut the cord, so I'll see how I like it.

    Thanks Kyl. That's the kind of post I was hoping for on here.


    I will check out that link, but I don't like the chances of any refund now that I've cancelled. Would they still refund me as a non customer if I can prove I overpaid?

    You are the one who claimed your rate was changing from month to month. You are also the one who said you would provide something to back up that claim. You have not done it.

    If they indeed incorrectly charged you, you likely won't get a refund unless your account is still active pending a final payment since you already cancelled. If you came here before cancelling and provided the information requested so you can get a better explanation first you might have had a chance.

    Refund? No one ever said anything about a refund.

    Come on. I was responding to your claim that you pay for "what you want" claiming that you have that freedom with a la carte that you don't have with bundles. But that is not true. You only can pay for what you want from within the list of choices, so you are NOT paying for what you want. You are paying for what you WATCH, not what you WANT.

    There is a big difference. If you can't see it, then there is no reasoning with you.

    Yes, because when you make an outlandish claim, you never have to back it up with data and facts and information.

    Hope the joy of saving money overcomes the hassles of having to manage multiple sources of varying quality and quantity and reliability. Have fun.

    So wait a second, when you pay to go to theater you're not watching what you want? And from that logic, it's the same thing with D*. You only watch what you want within their limitations. And heck, that's the truth for everything in life. You don't always eat exactly what you want because maybe alaskan crab isn't available where you live. That's a weak, weak argument. I don't know anyone who goes to the movie to watch things they don't want to watch. They go, pay, and watch when something they want is on. Not like D* where you have to pay whether or not there's something on that you want to watch unless you want a collections claim filed on you that is.

    A satellite company charging you more than what you expected/agreed to is an outlandish claim? :icon_lol:



    :lol: Let's see, Netflix and my remote control for OTA aren't very multiple. And both are extremely reliable. We'll see how it goes. Have fun paying $1800 a year for Honey Boo Boo, Buckwild, TBBT re-runs, and advertisements.


    Yeah, I should have done that first I guess.

    Your outlandish claim was that your bill changed every month for no reason that you could give. That is the outlandish claim. Now you are just trolling.


    If all I had was Netflix and OTA, I would go to a bar. Nowhere near enough programming for me. Netflix is actually pretty scant. And the sports you get is next to nothing. A very small percentage of sports is OTA.



    Nice to see, BTW, that you posted a picture of yourself. Someone who slams in here on the first day and makes wild claims then tries to walk away is, by definition, a troll.

    You have yet to offer anything to support that claim. If you could, you would.

    Free market / capitalism - DIRECTV provides what they want to provide. If you don't like it take your money some place else. I'm not sure you fully understand free market / capitalism.

    I went through and posted the prices of my bills. Like I said earlier, I'm not going to go through line by line. And I'm surely not going to post a picture of them.

    Well, that's too bad for you. I have a life outside of the television, and there are plenty of other ways to get sports. I can order the internet only packages for NBA and MLB and still save a ton of money in the process.



    First off, I didn't walk away. 2nd, do you always just pay a bill without looking further into it? because I don't. In case you live under a rock and are ignorant, companies try to pull the wool over your eyes all of the time. I have so many examples of companies doing shady things to me to make an extra buck it's ridiculous.

    No ones asking for a picture, but if you don't list them line by line don't expect to get an answer on why it changed each month.

    I'm not. Like I said, I'm done with it. I cut the cord.

    You could have easily copy and pasted the line items from your statements online or used the same items from a paper bill, without any personal or identifying information. You chose not to. You made a claim, you said you would back it up...you haven't. You have provided the least amount of data possible without giving nothing at all.

    Rates do not change from month to month. There are some rate increases introduced once a year, at the same time. If your bill total changes from month to month, it is because you are making changes to your service or you have credits lapsing or beginning. You rate does not change from month to month.

    That's fine. Then we must conclude that your initial claims were, in fact, false. Had they been true, you would have followed through with your offer to prove it.

    You're right, I lied. I made it all up. My bill never changed, I was never charged different prices, and those prices I listed were, in fact, false.
