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.
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.

Why are you so sure of that ?

I've been a DIRECTV customer for over 10 years and when I called to inquire about HDTV services they said - Sure, no problem for $300 you can have an HR20 and a new AT9 dish.
It seem the educated consumer does much better with the deals and the longer term customers seem to get preference. Let the rep know that you are unwilling to invest in the receiver because it's so buggy and you have done much research to confirm it. It's reasonable for all not to want to pay for something that is not working up to specifications. You don't want to go with the HR10 because next year it will be obsolete. All HD is going to Ka/MPEG4 satellites 99 & 103. So the HR10 can only get OTA HD next year. You may have to pay something for the HR20 maybe $99.00, but many have been able to convince the rep to forgo the fee, or give you $10.00 credits per month for a year to offset it ($120).

Sorry but I'm not authorized to guarantee that you will get it absolutely free.
