So the correct answer is that you don't know. Why can't you just say that?


I know that you received a notice because you fall under a group being assessed the RSN fee.

You can only know what you can verify for certain, which you can't do in this case. You may choose to believe what someone else has said, but you don't know. A lawyer would have a field day with you as a witness against his client.

:) Maybe you'll get a personal letter of apology from Mike White for being one in 20 million!

I have contacted him and we are in the process. Now, will you answer my question? How do you know for certain that I was notified?


Will you update us on the result?

I know that you received the notification because you are among those who were notified. You'd have us believe you are the first of 20 million. Let us know when get confirmation of that. :)

Maybe a better wording would be that he had the notification definitely "sent"? Maybe it got lost in the mail, spam email folder, etc?

When every customer being assessed a specific few was notified of it...they have been notified and the fee is not hidden. Very simple Harsh.


Notice is not when you see your bill and it says $2 RSN fee.

Notice would have been a letter,Email, or even a notice on their website 1 month prior.

I got none of this ,as I'm sure many other didn't either.
Not everyone knows or cares about satellite tv forums.

"You're"


As SatelliteRacer mentioned previously...PM him your acct # and he will provide the date & method the notification was sent.

And as I said, the notifications were definitely "sent"...but perhaps not "received" for a variety of reasons.

OK will do. I have atleast 15 Directv emails currently in my inbox.

None of which state a price increase of any kind!!!

So tell me how and why the delivery would be any different then the other 15?

...

All customers that incur the RSN fee were notified either through mail, email, or their bill in an insert. The $2 fee was disclosed from December 26th through February 6th depending on the customer bill cycle.
