So the contract you 'entered' with DirecTV was null and void at your whim? Glad you got what you want, but did you really enter into a contract??

Yes it was. New subs have the option to cancel with zero cost as long as it's done in 15 days or less after installation. Never got it installed. Direct was very nice about my request to cancel. No counter offer was made.

I guess it really was not a valid contact until I signed it AFTER the install. How about I "entered into an agreement?"

It's just TV...... and all I want is the best price for the same programming. The 5 tuners is nice, but have 6 now for less with the same programming and my 2 Hoppers can share programming. So I end up with 2TB of storage. If Direct would have lowered the price, I would still have an installation scheduled for tomorrow.

Again, I appreciate everyone quick response to my questions. VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!!

I'll bet, I'll be coming back if Direct drops the price for new subs.....

I don't think that's DirecTV's normal policy. It would be if your state required it, but 15 days sounds generous. I've heard of some with a period of 3 days, if that.
