Makes you wonder why they don't revise the TOS to reflect modern day realities.
Well it has changed to the fact that now includes Internet as a "responding" method
It doesn't anymore. BUT it does say that if DirecTV suspects that all receivers are not located at the "service address" they can investigate and if they find that all the receivers aren't there they will charge you full price for each receiver (no "mirroring").
It still does!!!!
check paragraph "F" here
I see is still mentions land based telphone line, but I see they have now added land based internet connection as well:
For optimal performance of your Receiving Equipment, including ordering with your remote control or receiving certain Services, your equipment must be directly connected to the same land-based telephone line or internet connection. If you add Service on additional TVs, you may purchase a separate subscription for each additional TV, or, if all your equipment is continuously connected to the same land-based telephone line, we can “mirror” programming to your additional TVs and charge you only the fee amount described in Section 2. You agree to provide true and accurate information about the location of your equipment. If we detect that any equipment is not regularly connected to a land-based telephone line or internet connection, we may investigate and, if it is determined that the equipment is not at the location identified on your account, we may disconnect the equipment or charge you the full programming subscription price for the equipment.
You should review the link peds posted.
see post #22
While they still have the line about requiring a phone line connection on all receivers in order to receive "mirrored" service in their agreement, they may as well have it deleted since it is NEVER enforced anymore-including sports subscriptions. In fact, when a customer receives new service and they don't have a phone line or broadband internet the installer hooks everything up anyway and I guarantee they don't pay for a separate subscription on each receiver!
There are a lot of things in the customer agreement that are generally ignored like the one about being charged for changing your programming package. They are probably still in there for legal purposes so they can zap people who intentionally abuse the service.
They do charge if you drop a premium too soon.
I see that you have changed your mind..... !rolling
I think the reason the requirement still exists is for those that don't have an internet connection. I know a couple friends and family that fall into that category.
Which "boggles" my mind since it has never been enforced, at least not that I can remember
It leaves it open to allow them to investigate if they think there's something going on. There have been some posts over the years here that may have given them enough info to start looking into a few accounts.
So? I don't have a phone line OR a broadband internet connection!! I use a Sprint Broadband Aircard for my internet which, of course, is NOT connected to my R22. And my other receivers don't even offer internet connection.
But you dont fall in "this" category"
