Long story short the wife & I have decided to cancel our Directv service early. We were aware that we would have to pay a cancellation fee. Was talking to a Directv representative and they stated that because we are canceling early that we would have to pay to return the receiver also? I was under the impression that we would receive a Recovery Kit for no cost so we would be able to return the receiver. They stated we would only receive one if we fulfill our contract. I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge of this? Again, after reading the contract, etc I was under the impression we would receive the Recovery Kit regardless of when we canceled service. If I happened to overlook something please feel free to point it out for me. Thanks in advance!
