"Directv is Dishonest and Service is Terrible"1.0 starson by rwaynem
Pros: None, Their scammers
Cons: Lousy service, overpriced, diseptive tactics, dishonest
Summary: After promising us a sweet deal (Showtime & The Movie Channel) free for 12 months if we signed up for 2 years service. Based on that and with an iterest in saving money we decided to switch from Dish Network to them. This was the biggest mistake we have ever made. Not only did they scam us and cancelled our free movie channels after 4 months, they never came through with the $25 gift card we were supose to receive either. They claimed, after offering and approving our registration for the card, that we didn't qualify. No real explanation other than that.
In addition, the service is far inferior to Dish Network, the sound is horrible and on some channels you have to turn the TV all the way up to hear it. Again, requests to have this resolved went nowhere. Also, you can't set a channel reminder to come on and switch to a channel when a show comes on when you want it starts. The remote and menu selections are far inferior to Dish Network searching options for shows is worthless.
This just names a few of the issues with this company and their product, not to mention their total dishonesty and inability to fix any issues. We will ride out our 24 month contract and then switch back to Dish Network or cable. As it turned out, with all the schinanigans from them, we ended up not even saving any money.
WAHT A MISTAKE SUBSCRIBING TO DIRECTV. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE JUST TO TRY AND SAVE A FEW DOLLARS.
