    We can see the broad difference in the meaning of "hidden fees" based on who is reading it. If something was a line item on my bill and had a name attached to it such as "hd" or "dvr" or even "regional sports fee", I would not consider it hidden. I consider those fees labeled "additional fees or services"(which seem to be different every month) to be hidden fees.

    As a side note, I would say something labeled "regional sports fee" to not be hidden based on the definition of the word.

    Advertisements are meant to entice. The details are provided, but doing an ad for any service would look silly and gaudy if you tried to put all the info, especially with a service requireing an agreement, in big regular size print.
    --
    The details, would be disclosed by a sales agent at the time you sign up for the service.

    Recently saw the $2 fee here as well and figured its just a way to recoup the fees to the RSN content providers. Better to do these fees by geography as there's different RSNs around the county.

    Do you have an official DIRECTV "hidden fee" definition that you could cite?
    That's your own personal definition of notification. ;)

    When every customer being assessed a specific few was notified of it...they have been notified and the fee is not hidden. Very simple Harsh.

    Making the fee regional still doesn't help those who aren't interested in the RSNs.

    It seems like DIRECTV could do considerably more to bring the fees in line with where the costs are; especially when it comes to receiver fees (like the WHDS and RVU fees).

    There have been at least a couple posters in this thread that have testified that they were not notified.

    I'm guessing they must not understand what being notified entails or your statement is false.

    Just read the post from Satelliteracer. Any of those posters can PM him for proof of their notification. All customers being assessed the fee were notified. The only customers not notified, were those customers not subject to the fee.

    So you are saying, without any exception, that it is impossible that one single solitary customer was missed in the notification process? How do you know that?

    Have you read the post from Satelliteracer? Have you taken him up on his offer?

    You said you didn't receive it. If you can work with Satelliteracer to confirm that, you'd be the first out of 20 million! That would be amazing!

    I have contacted him and we are in the process. Now, will you answer my question? How do you know for certain that I was notified?

    Because you live in an area affected by the RSN fee and that status generates the notification. The same function that gives you access to your RSN's also ties you to the notification system. Notifying you is a requirement. It isn't something they just like to do. It is something they most do. If you can show that you did not receive it, we will have the first notification failure on record. The only reported notification failure out of 20 million.

    So the correct answer is that you don't know. Why can't you just say that?
