No, she went back to cable the next day.


Really, ouch! I can't beive that DirecTV let that happen.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Why not? They probably stuck Jenna with $480 in ETF’s when she called to cancel. As long as they get their money, they could not care less.

There basic answer is, (OH HERES SOME MORE CREDITS). Yea, right. Fixing the problem with customer service and installs is what should be happening.

The problem is that all too often, handing out some credits works. As long as D* finds that they can buy happiness, that's what they'll continue to do.

I thought she'd be more concerned about becoming a slave again than her Directv service.

(something she talked about last week.)

whatever...


You are absolutely correct. This is a plot perpetrated by John McCain, Sarah Palin and their corporate lackeys at Direct TV to subjugate Ms. Goldberg to a life of slavery. :eek2:

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

If she's not using it, can I? Surely it can't hurt.

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

Given the above, perhaps she already has under a different name, and was told by some of the fanboys that it was somehow her fault. ;) :D

The real question is: Would she be famous if she had stuck with Caryn Johnson?

Or how about "True Grit", starring Marion Morrison.

She's an award-winning and accomplished actor, comedian, and talk-show host. Why denigrate? Have your parents not taught you if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all? :rolleyes:

Maybe she did a "move" to get some other local channels and that is why they can't find her house. :rolleyes:
