    Just like the DirecTV website pages on "free HD", "1993" was corrected after someone pointed out DirecTV's start date.

    Everyone sees the point, YOU DO NOT.

    The point is YOU DO NOT QUALIFY because you are not a current HD customer. Why is that so difficult for you to understand?

    Whether the offer is free HD for life or free HD for 24 months there are two groups of people that qualify:

    1. New customers who subscribe to HD service upon their initial sign-up.

    2. Current customers who are currently subscribe to HD.

    Are you in one of those two groups? If NO, then you do not qualify. You fail to see the point and that's sad.

    Ok I can see the Time Warner suit. The other one however is just from those people who do not know how to read. First of all it is CLEARLY stated in the lease addendum that there is a prorated fee of $480 for advanced receivers and prorated fee of $240 for standard receivers. Next it states in the service agreement in section 5e that "By giving us your credit or debit card account information, you authorize us to apply this method of payment, in accordance with applicable law, to satisfy any and all amounts due upon cancellation." So this suit will get dropped because Directv has notified them but the customer just failed to read it. Not to mention that it's not in fine print not only are they given copies at the time of installation, Directv sends them a welcome letter at the beginning of service telling them to review the agreement, and they send out yearly mailers showing updates to the agreements. I think you're just mad because you think you are owed something and you're not. I mean really I've been with my electric company for 10 years do you think I should call them and ask them for $10 off for 24 months? Didn't think so. If you want to go to Dish go ahead you'll end up paying more for less. Dish charges for a lot of things that Directv does not. Plus if you do upgrade to HD you'll only have about 105 full time HD channels whereas you will have 160 full time with Directv.

    I don't think you need to call anymore, if you look at the DirecTV website, their is a link that says "Existing Customers: Activate Now"

    That link is for existing customers who DO NOT currently have HD access, the $10.00 fee is shown upon attempting to activate.

    If you log out and open a new browser window, you will see it (at least that worked for me).

    At the moment it was posted it was right ... it looks like the webguys at DirecTV swapped things up:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    When Justin made his post the "Free HD" ad on that page had two options similar to the ad clipped from another page.
    (The "Free HD" banner and $10 price were shown with the two options.)

    The new browser trick brings it back.
