    So I got the check I was expected and paid off my Directv bill and so I called in and asked about adding a second HD-DVR and the lady said I could get one for $99 plus free shipping, I said great please bill me and she told me they dont do this anymore and I needed to pay upfront, well after paying Directv and other bills I wont have anymore money for a few weeks, so I told her I couldnt do it right now and she said she placed in the notes to give me the $99 deal when I can call back and pay for it with a credit/Debit card.

    Is she for real or should I call back? since i got Directv a year ago I have added 2 HD receivers to my account one was free and the other one I got charged $50 but the one for $50 was billed to my acount, so I didnt know if this was a new policy or what.

    They probably saw that you have been paying your bills late. It is nothing personal.

    I've been told this as well, and I'd been on autopay for at least a few years.

    I called the other week and inquired about adding another DVR and billing it to my account. The CSR said it was a no-go. This might be their new policy

    I've never been able to have them add the purchase of hardware to my bill. I've always had to provide a credit card at the time of my orders.

    Maybe the CSRs in retention can put it on your bill, but regular CSRs can't.

    I've seen it both ways, probably depends on your account/history

    I remember them adding a deca device to my account and they made me put it on my credit card. Why should they bill it when the can get the money immediately?

    Update: I called back in tonight and spoke to Ryan and he did add it to my bill, so I think it might depend on the CSR if they can add it or not.

    Yeah same here. Called to order MRV for my parents. Made me give them a CC # which was the same one they already had on file and charge every month for the upgrade.

    Sometimes they are a great company and sometimes they do stuff that makes no sense.

    I don't pay for receivers. Solves the entire problem. Haven't purchased a receiver since the first HD TiVo came out.
