So people are losing jobs and there's a "fake recession?"turey22 said:hello, i was thinking something the other day...maybe its dumb but i wanted the opinion of someone else. directv right now is getting alot of customers casue of the hd and also the promotions that they give out. they are a pretty expensive company tho but also they have good service...maybe i am looking at the small picture but i dont know. but does anyone think that directv will lose customers one day (alot of customers) cause they are so expensive? when i say that i am also thinking about all the jobs people are losing and how people are going crazy about the fake recession.
(so many buts here)
Ok how do you figure out what you pay per channel? I cant remember how many channels are in the premier pack let alone remember how many I actually watch. :lol:MicroBeta said:I don's see how they're so expensive.
I pay less per channel then I would with my cable company....and get more HD.
yeah directv does have a better channel lineupmhayes70 said:For me, Directv is cheaper than our local cable. Plus Directv has a better channel line up and alot more HD channels.
well man what i meant with the fake rescession was that people say that theres a receession when there actually isnt plus here in oklahoma i know of a lot of people that have been losing there jobs...my father in law being one of them. that what i meant. i dont know much of business so many be i am wrong or maybe i am just a little rightQuickDrop said:So people are losing jobs and there's a "fake recession?"
Anyway, once people have DirecTV I suspect they would downgrade their service rather than switch. With the two year commitment, it probably costs people more to switch providers. Once the commitment is up or they have to pay to upgrade equipment though, they might switch. But by that time the fake recession might be over.
sorry i dont mean to be political. i posted the last post before reading this so sorryStuart Sweet said:First of all, let's keep the political talk to a minimum.
Second of all in downtimes, people continue to spend money on home-based entertainment because it's still cheaper than going out.
Third of all (and I can only speak for myself) my DIRECTV bill is $50/month less than it would be with the closest Time Warner package, which does not include 15 HDs that I currently get.
I think DIRECTV is going in the right direction.
Expensive compared to what? They are still cheaper then any cable system around here and Dish is only a couple bucks cheaper. Uverse just started up a they are about the same.turey22 said:but does anyone think that directv will lose customers one day (alot of customers) cause they are so expensive?
