If you call CenturyLink or Directv, they perhaps have asked what satellite or local phone service you have in an attempt to have you combine your billing between those 2 companies. If you agree, CenturyLink will knock $5.00 off your monthly bill. Well I took the offer, and here's the kicker. From the Directv Letter of Confirmation: . Mind you, I don't need or require "adult programming", and have not purchased it, or intend to, in the future. But I object to CenturyLink telling me what programming I can order, and watch. This provision was never stated by CenturyLink or Directv when inquiring about the offer.
