Under the old system you could at least see recent transactions without signing up for "paperless billing". That capability seems to be gone.


You still can, click on the tab that says "My Account" and then select "Billing Center" from the drop down list. Scroll down that page a bit and you'll find recent activity.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Thanks for the advice. I wonder what they thought was so wrong with the old site that required this makeover.
When news breaks...we fix it.

As part of the redesign I noticed my HD Access is showing in the 'Other' area and it shows as unactivated up at the top. Is there any difference in this? I know I'm still getting HD Access.

The site still looks nothing like the preview said it would here:

http://www.directv.c...tex-en-relaunch

Are they just rolling this out a few people at a time and then when finished they roll out to the public (not logged in) site?

Even if I log in, the navigation and new look to watch directv look nothing like they do on the preview email. Looks like a few things moved around under "My Account", but the www.directv.com website face still looks the same as it always has for me.

Rollouts like this generally happen with "phases"...so I wouldn't be surprised to see more changes/enhancements/updates some time in the weeks ahead.

Makes sense. The preview page from the email doesn't show the year end special. Maybe the front page redesign goes into effect the first weeks of 2013 sometime.

I just checked. TV Packages is still not working. Perhaps the "new" DirecTV.com should have stayed on the drawing board a bit longer.

No problem seeing them here. I can see them signed in or out of my account. I have also been able to view them in 4 different browsers.

Is your browser up to date? Also if you have a different browser installed try viewing it in that browser.

Good point...different browsers and versions of them can make viewing go amuck at times...so being current or having alternatives coudl resolve issues.

No.

Had no problems with 2 different browsers...so the only potential trend at this early stage is some folks don't seem to have their browsers (or add-ins) up-to-date in settings or versions. :eek2:
