You can jest, but it was from the D attorneys. . . and became very serious.
Your finger gesture is over the line imo. Disagreement is part and parcel of threads here, but there should be a line.
No you don't have to be happy that DirecTV is not offering you the same deal as going to Dish as a new customer, but you could be practical about it. I can assure you that if you were a Dish customer looking at switching, Dish wouldn't be offering you a new customer deal to keep you either.
He must've been doing very heavy torrents. Maybe supplying data. No way they go after a casual user like that.
Didn't appreciate your smart comment. I was asking a serious question. Maybe I am asking too much from them but I think trying to get them to match the dish offer is reasonable. I can't be the first one to take this approach.
You didn't ask a question at all in the post I quoted. (see above)
They pretty much matched the offer. You were offered a free HDDVR free, which is usually $199 and Dish's site quotes the Hopper at $199.
The Hopper is a great product, especially if most of your recording is from the locals during primetime.
My question was is it better to have the genie or another dvr. I didn't ask for advice on the savings or discount.
IMO the HR24 is better, Genie is having too many issues software related, I'm on old SW from December and the HR24 works as it should, now if they decide to update it who knows how it would work like the previous SW, Plus with MRV and 4 tuners (2 HR24's) and 2tb externals I'll stick with what I have.
What many software issues is the Genie having? It's amazing you're able to give an opinion on equipment you don't have. I have a 34 and it's worked as it should for months. Now as for the clients - I'd recommend a H25 over current clients.
I hate to sign up for 2 more years with old equipment. I would rather stay with directv but not with just another dvr. I think the discounts are good but I can't decide.
move to dish
you'll be glad u did
I would like to get some more opinions on the genie or adding another dvr.
What if Dish doesn't have the programming that he wants? What then?
The programming is fine. The only real difference that will matter to me is ESPNU is not in HD. Channels are pretty much the same. I just don't think its smart to sign up for another 2 years without getting the genie. If I am going to make that commitment again I want the latest stuff. I have the month of April to make a final decision. I really don't want to leave and I have never had Dish so I am unsure if I will like it or not. I am not one for change but I could like it more. Who knows. I do know its hard to turn down the price difference with the new receivers.
Then you obviously aren't a NY Yankees or NY Mets fan, or out of market NFL fan either. Good for you then. I doubt you would have much problem getting used to Dish's equipment.
Nope. My main thing is college football. WVU and I watch all the other games also. Most of their games are on Fox or FX now. Plus, I can always order gameplan for a weekend if I need to.
Is it really worth signing up for 2 more years and not getting the genie?
IMO I would not sign up for the two years and not get the Genie .... Called again and ask very nicely saying you would sign a two year agreement if you could have the deal they previously offered you AND a free Genie , if they can't provide that to you explain to them that Dish will give you the Hopper and you will have to switch. Tell them you REALLY want to stay with Directv but you will need the Genie to do that ....
You don't get a contract if you just take the discounts.
I did not realize that. I have a day or two to call them back once I decide. That doesn't sound like a bad option.
Just know if you take an equipment upgrade that it'll be a 2 year commitment.
