You know, I don't know why I even try. Your blinders are too thick.


There are posters on this forum that think Directv never makes mistakes. If they ask for examples and you give them 100, they want 101.

You provided one example and it was very poor.

Your opinion. If I gave you 100 you would say they were all poor.

I only asked for one reputable source, not 100.

In cases where faulty equipment was replaced, are we sure that it also wasn't an upgrade? SD DVR goes out, the customer decides to replace it with HD, etc. It's replacement of defective hardware but also an upgrade that would trigger a commitment.

If a commitment has ever been improperly extended, I cannot see how it wouldn't get fixed.

There were a number of lengthy threads over the span of a couple of years about erroneous extensions for equipment replacements (not upgrades).

There were several people who posted, who said they had knowledge of the issue and that it was a "systems issue" at DirecTV. The "systems issue" went unfixed for a lengthy period of time (ie well over a year). At some point, someone who said they had knowledge, posted the issue was fixed on Directv's end.

Don't ask me to dig the threads up because I'm not going to do it.

STOP discussing each other. If you have nothing constructive and civil to say then don't post.

Since it costs 1.66¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 3.32¢ worth.  That 3.32¢ is my own and not the 3.32¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

You really should stop, cause this does happen. I don't know why you would even try and claim that Directv has never 1 time locked a commitment on someone for defective equipment replacement.

Why do you care?

Directv has many lawsuits that were found Guilty regaurdless of you're claims.

Thats business, and Directv makes mistakes.

I'm sure it could be fixed, but to say it never happends im sorry flat out dumb.

And to someone who doesn't know anybetter Directv CSR could easily tell a customer, "Hey remember when you had your Defective receiver replaced last May", Well thats another 24 month commitment. They tryed that crap on me too when I left in 2009. Sure I set them straight, But I know the system.

Not everyone knows about DBS talk.

Thanks everyone ... since the Thread Starter has not returned we might as well put a fork in this one.
There are plenty of other threads to bash/defend DirecTV in (without bashing other posters).
