It just depends on how busy the installers in your area are. While 10 days is bit long, it's not unheard of. Be sure to check your DirecTV account and call them regularly to see if you can get an earlier appointment.

I am only guessing here, however my guess is that DirecTV is relying on contractors and having problems finding ones willing to work for what they pay per job. The DishNetwork service people are probably employees that get paid by the hour. When You get paid by the hour it does make a difference. I worked a salary job, Once, never again. I worked piece work once, never again. Hourly is good.
Others may disagree.
