So in otherwords it seems like the threat to cancel has worked for everyone else on getting a better deal except for myself.

Didn't work for me either about 6 months ago.  I cancelled and am now getting roughly the same programming from Dish for about $40 a month less for the first year, and about $15 a month less after that, and I no longer have to deal with the dog-slow dvr.  No offers to comer back, either. I was a long-term customer, back to the days of USSB.

Even though I have no intention of moving, I wonder what DirecTV would do if I did move and took my dish and all my receivers with me and re-installed the whole thing myself (like I did at my present location).  What would they say if I called and said "I just moved could you please change my address in your records."??  They probably wouldn't know what to do.

happens all the time 


My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.

Ya, I moved my DirecTV service and did the installation myself  when I was working for DN.  I call them up to "update" my service address.  no issue there.

there sure is - write

 

"return to Sender"

 

on it and drop it in the local snail mail box, may take 2 or 3 but eventually they stop. Worded for me with another company

That won't work if it's not first class mail, or doesn't have a return to sender endorsement on the envelope.

Awesome deal!.  But I would keep the HR24s instead of the clients.

Why?

 

Do they interoperate with the Genie?

Because having just the Genie and clients is like "having all of your eggs in one basket"  Genie breaks and no TV until Genie gets replaced. plus having HDDVRs gives more tuners to record and you can watch whatever you record on ay DVR

Good advice.  I wish I had asked someone before I got my genie and clients.

You can still change the order once the  tech is onsite.

My install was 5 months ago unfortunately.  I thought that the clients were the only thing that would work with the genie.

It should just be all to easy for not sending a tech and changing your address, unless their computer says otherwise.
