OMG!
On The View right this minute.. Whoopi Goldberg is VENTING about Directv!
Priceless!

She's trying to get someone to come to her place and fix her Directv... and they're not showing up. Not sure exactly what problem she's having.. but she is royally ticked.
Something tells me that she'll have someone there this afternoon.

Sherri Shepard is having problems with Time Warner....

Whoopi said she's been waiting 3 weeks for them to come out, and they kept telling her that they went out there to some red building and she had to tell them each time she doesn't even live in a red building. So who knows if anyone will ever get to her home since all the repair people seem to think she lives in a red building....:nono2:

Then Sherri said she's been waiting 2 weeks to get her Phone, Internet, and TV connected by Time Warner, that they didn't show up the day they scheduled her for; and then when she called they told her it had been rescheduled but they didn't know by who. So Sherri has no home phone, internet, or TV.......

Just goes to show, even the rich and famous get the short end of the stick now and again. It's more surprising that they don't have "people" to wait at home for them.

I think the point is... even the celebs are getting the run around.
100 bucks that Whoopi's HDDVR is suffering from Blank Recordings. :D

I was watching The View when that happened. While I have never had problems with Directv(when they come to my house they know what they are doing and they come within the scheduled time) her story sounds an awful lot similar to many others here and hopefully these don't become the norm. It is sad that people can get a bad taste in their mouths when it comes to Directv by subcontractors.

Why didn't she call to verify the address with D*. Plus I doubt this handled the right way. Most of these people get VIP status and I doubt they really get the run around.

Someone invite Whoopi to DBSTalk and see if we can help her!

Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing

Invited or invite? You make it sound like someone in the audience stood up and said "Yeah, there's this cool web site"...

In seriousness if Ms. Goldberg does find this site I'm sure we will help as best we can.

She said that she doesn't use her "Whoopi" name as her customer name.

Sounds like you all should watch "The Price Is Right" instead. I don't think Drew Carey ever complains about DirecTV, especially when they're giving it away as a prize.

She actually says that she did do that and they still got it wrong.

Windbags? Describes the hosts of any talk show. Now that that's out of the way ...

What do you think the fallout will be? Lots of blogs about Whoopi's problems with DIRECTV. An article by Swanni. Some short-term negative publicity for DIRECTV. We know DIRECTV reads this site, so if they weren't already watching The View, now DIRECTV knows. Will Ellen Filipiak get involved? Will Ellen realize that the CRS and HSPs need better communication? I'm sure she already knows. Will anything change? One can only hope ...

I know what she feels like in some way. It took me months to return my directv receivers because they kept leaving off my unit number to my condo. I am thankful that I dont have to deal them again.
