What are you talking about? All HD and DVR upgrades are 24 month commitments.

Sent from my Galaxy S5

SD receiver like a D12 (if that is what you are adding ) is a 12 month commitment

Because you must keep minimum, $30 permonth service and pay $25 advanced receiver fee for 24 months.

 

 

 

Again what programming has nothing to do with it. We all know from reading this entire thread Directv is more expensive than most.

 

Because you must keep minimum, $30 permonth service and pay $25 advanced receiver fee for 24 months.

 

you are adding the programming cost to the "overall price" of a DirecTV receiver but you are not doing the same for the TIVO

keep it long enough and you may get to keep it.  I called DirecTV to have an HR23 deactivated, guess what? I get to keep it.  I can recycle it, or sell for parts. I am sure I can get $100 if I sell it.  for something I pay $0 for, good deal in my books!!!!

Really, yep because the 2nd biggest POS receiver on the market has a really high demand LOL.

That is not offered to everyone first of all and again it a minimum $1320 to Directv.

Because you must keep minimum, $30 permonth service and pay $25 advanced receiver fee for 24 months.

 

Nope, keep p with the conversation.  you said you HAVe to pay ARS fe, which is not true if all you are getting is an SD receiver

Why bother???  Remember Directv gives everyone for free HR24 and HR44s , and all the latest tech gadgets for free, remember !rolling  !rolling !rolling  

All you have to do is ASK. That simple.

But hey, never know when you may have to replace a Hard drive in your Leased Directv HR23. !rolling

Correct, but it does not help if you have an OWNED defective HDDVR that you can salvage for a few bucks

That's good, But again only an opinion, and in this thread some have good alternatives.

 

What I'm getting at , and most would agree , its easier to switch to cable and get TiVo equipment, and try it out, If you don't like it , you sell the HIGHLY demanded Roamios and MINIs, and recoup 50- 70% of your losses.

 

Not that easy to do with Directv.

I leave tomorrow, I'm out my equipment and ETF.

So with that in mind, I'm going to go with both providers for about 6 months. That's my plan.

Easy if you have $1500+ to waste on equipment.  not a lot of folks have such luxury. This is why we have the subsidy platform

What you think Directv is a programming leader?  Ha maybe if you like NFL ST.

I wish AT&T allowed Tivo. I have a Premier sitting it it's box from when I tried it with TWC. Cable Cards and adapter pairing was a  nightmare and I never got all the channels correctly after SIX tech visits. Finally dropped TWC and got Uverse... their boxes are horrible.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
