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



She didn't say the name of the company today.So it would seem someone talked to her about it.;)

Her real name is Caryn Johnson. Could she be lurking here looking for opinions? We've always got plenty to share. ;)

Maybe E* payed Whoopi to go on her rant or she thinks that Rupert Murdoch is still involved with D* :)

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


LOL:)

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.


I am really close to cancelling my D* service. Isnt the max ETF fee on a 2 year contract a prorated $240? I sure hope so, because Im willing to pay the fee if thats the case, which I thought it was. (I was figuring Id be paying $192, been a sub for four months).

If Im confused and a 2 year contract cancellation is actually $480 prorated I may have to reconsider...

If you knew it were WG, would you show up?

I was going to laugh and say hell no, but, I probably actually would, as a custom installer I do a damn good job and dont mind makin' bank ;)

shes a definite 2 bagger.

True Dat

Folks .. Whoopi may not be a member here, but there is certainly no reason to call her names ..


I dont think we were trying to call her a name. We were taking about all talk show hosts in generals being windbags, or, more literally, full of something to say. Whoopi is being stated to say 2ce as much as most hosts, which I agree with.

If you just signed up four months ago, the ETFs are $20 a month for the months remaining on your commitment. If you have anything other than a standard SD receiver, then you're looking at 20 months remaining and a $400 ETF.
