    Sunday ticket $300

    NBA league pass $90

    MLB $215

    NHL $80

    Soccer $168

    Thats some of the sports totalling $850

    This is the main comment for Directv, "well they have sports"

    I did read the first post. I also read every post that followed. I also read the OP's other posts on the "same" subject matter on "three" other threads.

    Paying "dearly" depends on one's point of view.

    The fan club T-shirts will be ready by the end of next week. What size do you need?

    I think this is now circling the drain.

    That's very true. Had DirecTV offered me what was around the last corner of even the one before that I probably would have stayed with them. They wouldn't do that. They implicitly said that I could easily end up with another HR20.
    I found that to be not acceptable and I crossed the street to see what was around the other corner.

    I'm not sure what your problem is, but I can assure I don't really care.

    I'll let you know when you post your discord with DirecTV on a "fifth" thread. ;)

    I started two threads.
    This one to convey my experiences with DirecTV's retention efforts, and one other to wish the CE group good luck and to say that I enjoyed being a part of the great work they're doing.

    If you'll send me your mailing address I'll gladly reimburse you for all of your incurred monetary losses from this move I'm making.
    I can't reimburse you the time you've spent following and reading my posts. I assume that your passion to do so has transcended the bounds of material rewards anyway.

    I don't hate DirecTV.
    I'm just saying that they and their policies are no longer a good fit for me.
    I may well be disgusted with the other system at the end of my term and come right back.
    On the upside, I guess I'll get the new customer treatment then.

    Let's see. Last month I became dissatisfied with my phone provider. I shopped around, found another provider and made the switch. End of Story! No need to go on a website and post my displeasure with my former phone service along with the pros of my new provider on multible threads.

    I bought Skippy peanut butter last month, but bought Peter Pan peanut butter a week ago, because Skippy is outdated and wouldn't match the price of Peter Pan.

    Same can be said about DISH subs who post on the DirecTV General Discussion thread. ;)

    Why?

    Maybe they are posting because they want more info, or want to correct a misstatement or just because they have signed up for this forum and not just some parts of it. :)

    Look around. There hasn't been a lot of info gathering or correcting of misstatements. :sure:

    In this particular thread, that is true. What started as a simple 'D could not give a good deal to yet another existing customer' thread drifted to what threads like this always seem to. The opposition and fanboys come out to argue yet again.

    Of course this could have just as well started in the Dish section with the same result since neither one seem all that interested in retention of existing customers.

    I have no problem with someone switching providers. I just don't understand the need some have to post it on multible threads stating the shortcomes of one provider and the strengths of the other.

    It's called "cognitive dissonance" and I've seen a lot of it here on all sides of the issues. (it is so prevalent, it might as well be called human nature, instead of the impressive buzz word that is actually used.):)
