I am in Milpitas, CA. I am Comcast cable customer.
Please tell me how to sign up new DirecTV account?

I want to try this $24.99/mo for 12 month package. I need two set top box for 2 TV in 2 rooms.
What is the total initial installation and equipment cost?
What is the monthly cost for the first 12 month?
What is the length of contract? What is the cost for the rest of the contract?

thank you

Upfront costs can be Free up to $298 for 2 rooms depending on your credit.
24 month commitment and $20 per month for unfulfilled commitment months left.

The Genie and 1 C31 will be $31 per month in total fees, that includes HD, DVR, MRV, and additional room fee.

All the monthly base package charges are all different, You have to see for yourself what promos you are signing up for to get the Pricing for the first 12 months.

Milpitas is near San Jose, CA.
No DVR. Just over-the-air HD channels. No preium channels.

What is the mininum package contract period? 2 years?
What is two set top box cost?
What is the installation and equipment cost? Who is the installation contractor in my local area?

For basic receiver, which model to get? Can I get my own receiver in Amazon?

You really should call them . There are lots of no contract options. There are even Leased equipment no contract options. But you are going to pay more then you would with a commitment.

Two years is typical. What you pay in the second year is based on the plan you subscribe too (which can be changed -- I think you have to keep a package of $29.99 per month)).
Why Amazon? You can call in and, if you quality, you can get the equipment free from DirecTV. If you 'buy' it from Amazon, it will not be yours; it will be leased.
Try Google to find your local installer, but why? They don't set up your install -- you do that with DirecTV.

So call. If you're having a problem with who ever answers the phone, politely tell them you have to go someplace and you'll call back at a later time.
