I’ve been a DTV customer for over 5 years. Other than the not-insignificant hassle of resetting the pricing each year, I’ve been very pleased with the service. This past year, I had been getting the Choice package plus 50mbps internet with one Genie for about $95/mo. $100 is my threshhold - anything more and I’m ready to chuck it and stream. Then last month, my promos expired and my price shot up to $150. I called a few times - played the typical “game” - and now they’ve got me down to $78/mo for the next year - which is a pretty sweet deal for all that I mentioned above. There’s just one wrinkle: I’ve added a TV and now I want a second Genie mini. And that’s only an extra 5-6 bucks a month which is no big deal, BUT they are insisting on a 2yr contract commitment! So is that 2yr contract commitment just for the price of the extra mini, or for all my services? I assume the latter, in which case I can’t possibly commit to a 2yr contract when my pricing is only good for the first year. After that, they’d have me by the short hairs, so to speak. Anybody know a way around this? The advantage of streaming service is I don’t have to hassle with receivers at all, but the DTV deal I’ve currently got is a way better price than what standalone internet plus a couple streaming services would cost. It all seems so ridiculous: I’m offering to pay DTV more money for that second Genie and stay with their service, but they won’t give it to me without a 2yr commitment. Hell, I’d even give them a 2yr commitment if they gave me a 2yr price commitment! Thoughts?
