Yes you can as a relative call on his behalf with his permission. I'm sure they will give him new upgrade for free with free HD package for 6 months or so.keng52 said:My wife asked her 89 yo dad what he wanted for Christmas. He said High Def. Was wondering what the deals were for someone who had been with Direct TV for over 15 yrs but wanted to upgrade to HD. Also I was wondering if I could call in his behalf and try to get him the deal. Any help out there would be appreciated.
