Um, yeah. A customer is a customer. I sure hope you're not in the customer service business ...

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:

hmm I have dealt with Celebs and cust service. I do show up, I treat them as nice as I can, and for some reason, they end up spilling their guts (talking about things that average people never hear)

So if the problem with Whoopi's install wasn't the actual fault of Directv, could they sue her for her rant?

Since they are using their own people or a subcontractor, the buck stops with DIRECTV.

You'd think with the coin Ms. Goldberg is pulling down that she would have the "Titanium" package. She must not or she would not be complaining. Do "Titanium" subs have their own CS number to call?

I'm not saying I understand the logic, but "apparently" some people don't see the value in the Titanium package. Go figure.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

UPDATE:

As I suspected.... Whoopi's Directv problem was fixed yesterday. She commented that it shouldn't have taken her celeb-ism to get this done. They should treat all customers equal. She also said that they told her that they have no excuse for the way this situation was handled.
I'm certain her 'people' are in talks w/ Dtv as we speak to have her as their next spokesperson. :lol:


And Sherri's Time Warner problem was taken care of yesterday as well...

This is why local television news programs often have consumer advocate reporters: It often sadly takes a bright spotlight for a company to rectify some grievous mistake. It shouldn't have to be like that ...

Or...she could get a standard package, expect good customer service and give the rest to her many charities.

After reading most of the CS posts her, she is getting the same service as everyone else.:D
