    As a heads up, since mid-October, rebates are added to the account without rebates needing to be submitted. Not sure the 5 minutes it took to submit those was really "jumping through hoops" but to each his own. Just about everything else is covered in the email sent as soon as a new order is placed that itemizes everything else.

    As for ordering equipment, the website and agreement both specify that the equipment is leased, much like it says on solid signal.

    Nope. An employee would be more politic.

    Actually he doesn't Act Like A Directv Employee as he is Assertive, Aggressive and they would want their employees to be more polite, more passive but he speaks his mind which is what a Forum is all about!!! :D

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree everytime we post something to vent our frustration or in need of help but sometimes not sure how the system works, he post something that is in no way helpful or post unnecessary comments that does not reflect well to the rest of us. but I understand everybody has a right to post what they went even if I don't agree. I'm sorry but someone has to say it.

    Rude, condescending and confrontational is hardly what this forum should be about. Surprised you think it is truthfully.

    Of course DirecTV is evil.

    They steal $150 a month out of my pocket.

    If they were good, they'd be putting money into it instead.

    Well, duh! :rolleyes:

    Some threads are so stupid.

    Well, I don't think DIRECTV is evil but just a Corporation that has to survive by making a Profit which is what all Corporations do.

    You might not agree with all of their Policies but you have the right to go somewhere else!!! :D

    yep agree, But the also have the right to leave without anyone ones permission from this thread .
    They also have a right to voice their opinion on a service they pay for, just the same as the others who defend Directv at the drop of a hat no matter what.
    Below Not Directed at Richierich

    It gets to the point where you can't ask for any improvements, or recommend anything out of Directv in DBS talk without the same people over and over blowing smoke up Directv A$$. If your happy with what you have , Then keep your fanboy comments to yourself, and let the open minded members take the comments.

    I was going to reup my Membership, But I gotta tell you because of fact I can't ask a question or Even ask for an option without a bashing from the same 5 people. I doubt I'm going to.

    I would love to help out the Site, But not so the same people can rip the crap out of member for a feaken question.

    Nicely said. It sure would be nice if they tightened the front line up so clear, concise, and accurate answers were readily supplied. This is not the case. In my situation they have infuriated me so badly enough times that I will at all costs avoid calling them (thank God for this forum). However, I'm in the unfortunate situation of liking their reliable high quality signal more than any other provider I can choose, so I won't go elsewhere, unless I just cut out pay TV altogether (which remains under consideration).

    He did not ask for, nor did he require, the permission of anyone in this thread. He had already decided to cancel before creating this thread. No one ever offered or suggested it either. He was simply complaining about a problem he had created for himself. He was accusing DirecTV of being "evil" for following their own well established policies that he agreed to.

    I don't think this Forum is about being Rude, or Condescending or Confrontational and I try Never to be Rude or Confrontational but I try to put The Truth out there or the Facts as I know them but without Confronting others because they have their own set of facts and opinions.

    In fact just the other day I was dead wrong about something I thought for sure was True and this Forum Member stated the Facts as he knows them and he was Right and I was Wrong so I admitted that I was Wrong and thanked him publicly for straightening me out.

    If you are Not Open Minded you can Never Learn Anything. If I think I Know It All then I Will Never Open Myself Up To Learning The Truth when it Presenst itself to me from others.

    And I have learned an awful lot here at DBSTALK which is why I keep coming back here.

    Some people for what ever reason just Love to Argue and I see it all the time but I avoid those Arguments as I don't have the Time and Energy for them anymore!!! :lol:

    It's like Politics and Religion, you will Never convince someone else that they are Wrong about their political or religious views so why expend the energy trying??? :nono2:

    Is DirecTV evil? I don't think so.

    Is DirecTV inconsistent? I believe so. If it were otherwise why would customers be advised to continually play "CSR roulette"? It would be heartening to receive the same response to a question but I don't believe it happens often.

    The inconsistency, while played well by roulette players, is maddening. Many CS systems are quite messy but from what I read here (not my personal experience, as I use DirecTV CS sparingly and have had good results), DirecTV's CS experience is messier than most.

    It does drive you batty, though, when a otherwise well-run company has bad front line ambassadors. I recently went through a CS nightmare with Amazon, who is usually a very well run company and delivers good value for the dollar. It makes me want to avoid actual conversations with CS folks there and it is understandable why DirecTV customers feel the same.

    Exactly my point, You think just cause you say it its fact.

    I would love to know what you do for a living.

    My guess is what ever it is doesn't involve human contact.:lol:

    You can usually tell the tone of a thread by the title and first post. The direction this thread took is absolutely no surprise. Often times people come here to complain or vent and they don't always get flamed, I was one of them back a few years ago.

    I'm not saying it right but it's the way it goes at times.
