The criminals made fraudulent charges against my credit card and have been no help to get it straighten out.
After buying a $3000 samsung 4k directv ready tv and spending hundreds of dollars on three rooms full of the latest genies you are telling me that I can't watch the masters in 4k because I only have the extra package and not the ultimate, well I am not happy about the greed you have displayed it is a real slap in the face to 80% of customers in my position.
My "go to" channel for sports has been ch. 205 sports mix. It has now become commercial mix. Even the header is a commercial. Why is this necessary? Why can't you show the sports mix as it used to be without the commercials replacing them? Goodbye sports, hello commercials!
A male came to my house asking about my name and saying there was an ATT phone to this address. Being somewhat taken by a stranger coming to my door in this manner, I was not going to give him information about myself. When I did not comply with some of his questions, he showed an attitude and I told him I would go to the ATT store if I needed anything, He was asked to leave my property and called me a "PRICK". I asked him for his name and he refused. He walked to his vehicle, a blue Ford Focus, Tag B123BK Utah. I went into my house and called a friend whose wife works at the ATT store in Sherman Tx. I learned that Sherman PD has had problems with this male before. The male went to my neighbors house and pulled into her driveway.
He finally identified himself as Chase Hubert. I used my phone to record our conversation and he was very unprofessional and argumentative. He argued that I did not introduce myself. I don't have to. Chase is representing your company and is causing citizens of Sherman to complain. I hope Direct TV does not represent itself in this manner. During our conversation, he told me to get my camera out of his face. He does not have a permit to solicit door to door, as city ordinance requires. When asked where his permit was he said he does not have one. He said he knew he was supposed to have a permit. After being recorded, Chase apologized, his apology is not accepted. He wrote his name on a Direct TV order form and urged me to complain. I was thinking about changing to Direct TV but not now. I'm sure this email will fall on death ears. This occurred on 3-22-16 at 1945 hrs.
Are we the "only" customer that can't get signal from satellite EVERY time it is windy? We have had this happen so many times to us and have just put up with it after we call customer service. Yesterday it happened AGAIN and we called and went to web site. Can get a repairman on Friday at the present time. It sure makes us wonder how you keep all your customers if they have the same problem. We had an appointment and the following day it came back. We cancelled our appointment and once again last night it's out again. Just checked my account and we still get billed each month but it's making us think we better find something better!! Guess we'll check facebook to see if others have the same problems.
Being billed for equipment services and your Philippines representatives rep does not understand your company policies and do not have knowledge of explaining to your customers. I need someone in authority to contact me asap who speaks English. I have been a loyal customer since 2002!
Had a DirecTV customer service call scheduled on Tues., Feb. 23. Received a phone call at 2:45 p.m. stating that the tech would be here between 4:00 and 5:00. I made arrangements to leave work early to be here at 4:00 to meet him. At 3:21, I received a call from the dispatcher that the tech was here (40 minutes before my promised time.) I asked the dispatcher to call me back as I was going to call the office to have someone let him in. When I called the dispatcher back the tech had left. I called the DirecTV customer service number back a little later and spoke to Lori. She was outstanding and reached out to get the tech to come back. He refused to saying he was out of the area, even though he did not show up at the time that was given to me.
Being there 40 minutes early is not my fault and he should have either waited or come back at the time that was promised to me. Lori tried to get another tech to come out but no one would come out. By then it was 6:00 o'clock and we still have no reception. By the way, we could not get an appointment scheduled for 3 days and then to have the tech treat us like that is unacceptable and poor customer service. Lori set up and promised that the tech would be here on Thursday, Feb 24 between 5:00 and 6:00. The tech called and is running behind on his job that was ahead of me. It is now 6:20 p.m. and no tech yet. He did promise that he would be here as he gave me his word. Lori is great, but repair service leaves a lot to be desired.
On on-going problem with billing and contract over the last six months. Broken verbal contracts followed the the absolute worse customer service I have ever experienced. I cannot find someone to make a decision. I would rate DirecTV less than one star given the option.
My bill is always going up. I asked for a $50 credit against my $233 cable bill and was refused. I have been a customer since 2011 and never had any credits. I have the $75 plan and added 13$ for Encore and Showtime. Every time I ask why is so high....the customer service reps say its because you don't pay all your bill. I pay over $200 every month. I hate Direct TV and when I am over the 2 year contract I will change.
After the AT&T/DirecTV merger, I was pushed to make the switch over from U-Verse TV to DirecTV. I explained that I was going to have to switch to Comcast if i could not make the switch over to a new customer promotion. The phone representative quoted me about $115/mo and said that was the cheapest they could do for a package similar to mine. Shortly after the install, I noticed that the pricing online was substantially cheaper and for better packages (i.e. $65/mo for DirecTV Ultimate and U-Verse Max Turbo). I called AT&T and they apologized for the misleading information and agreed to lower my bill for the internet $25 and upgrade it to Max Turbo.
They said I would have to call DirecTV to get them to adjust the price on their end, though. When I did, I spoke with a very rude representative who almost sounded resentful that I had switched over from U-Verse and was not a customer of theirs initially. I explained my situation and he told me he could go ahead and downgrade my package and charge me more for it. I asked to speak to a supervisor. The supervisor's name was Michael (employee ID # AQ3135 -- or so I was told). He was even more rude than the person I spoke to before him, saying that he could adjust the pricing but he was not going to because I signed a contract. I asked why AT&T was willing to make the adjustments but they are not.
He simply said "we have different rules" and essentially waited for me to get off the phone. I am paying about $90 a month now for a package with DirecTV Select when they are advertising one with Ultimate for $65 a month with $250 in promotional cards. It seems there is no concern over retaining customers. I will be reviewing aggressive promotions from other providers and will be canceling service ASAP, as the monthly savings in switching over will outweigh the early termination fees and will hopefully less profitable for AT&T/DirecTV than if waited for the contract to run out. I will encourage others to look into their early termination fees and compare them to the savings they would get by switching over as well. This is not only bad customer service, it's bad business.
I call to find out why my bill increased and come to find out another increase. right now I want nothing to do with directv, and now they say I can't get rid of it till May of 2017, that's bull. They just seemed to add more time that I have to put up with it. I have two accounts with directv and hopefully can get rid of both of them. You just sway people in with free offers and bang the shoe drops. Very disappointed with directv customer service and will not have a good word to say about it.
We cancelled our DirecTV service on 1/19/16 because of software issues. We were told that we would receive an equipment return kit with instructions on how to package the equipment properly. Today is 2/9/16 and still no kit. We have made numerous phone calls to your many call centers and were told not to worry, that it was on it's way. We were also told that if we did not send it back in a timely manner that we would be charged fees. We are starting to think this infamous kit does not exist. We would appreciate any assistance we could get! We are really looking forward to the FEDEX truck pulling up to our gate with the kit inside.
Absolutely the worst DirecTV customer service ever. For the second time I was promised one price and when the bill came it was higher than promised in my contract agreement. Tried to call back a total of six times until finally someone agreed with me that they were wrong but nothing could be done about it.
Most of the calls I was hung up on after being "transferred". I have now been told it will be submitted to the "back office" for review and I have to wait 5 days for an answer. I am thinking there should be some type of class action suit against this company for purposely screwing people. I am guessing I am not the only one they promise one price to then charge them much higher rates.
I switched to Direct TV in December 2015 I was told I would receive a 200.00 gift card in 30 days for switching. Well that has not happened. I just want the gift card I was told I would get. The person I spoke with is Alexandra. AG113Y
A technician came into my home on November 12, 2015. He broke a piece of my furniture. I was approved for damages. I have been getting the run around every since. They transfer me from one person to another. The one that caused the problem never reported it. I am so disappointed in directv!
Today I called DirecTV customer service line after several fails through long holds or disconnects to dispute my cancellation charge. A couple of months ago I called to find out when my contract would expire. I called again the following month, and was told the exact month the service would expire. I waited 30 days after to transferred to another cable company. Shortly after, I received a bill for what I assumed was for equipment. I called in again. I was transferred 3 times after waiting 58 mins, I hung up.
Today, I called DirecTV 1800 number again. Spoke with one young lady for 10 mins, was then transferred to another young lady after 20 minutes, spoke to this young lady and she acknowledged some of the times I had called in to inquire about cancelling my service, however, she stated I stilled owed a early cancellation fee. I then asked her was there any way I could submit a formal complaint.She stated she was not sure. I was told to hold for her supervisor, after one hour and still counting, I have yet to speak to a supervisor or be given any contact information to submit a formal complaint, and like the other calls, I have been placed on a wait that I feel is meant to exhaust me to the point I hang up.
To give DirecTV all close to $200.00 for services I did not receive is not only unjust, but money I can not afford to liberally throw away. I called into your office several times to inquire about my cancellation. Was given a date I could cancel with out being penalized. Cancelled when I was told I could only to be hit with early cancellation and a bill for usage when I was already receiving services from another company.
I would be beyond grateful for a answer, or at least an acknowledgment of my due diligence to discontinue to my service with Direct TV with out breaking a contract to avoid the penalty.I am single parent with two children in private school. I can not afford any extra expenses.
My Direct TV equipment broke down. I have been a customer for 11 years. They said they will have someone out to service the equipment in 6 days. That is absurd. I am cancelling my service immediately.
Called DirecTV customer service dept. on October 05,2015 to cancel service reason moving, I was said the service was cancelled and a technician would go to my new address to check if service could be transferred, the condo position did not allow the signal and I was told the account was cancelled and closed with 0 balance, since the service of September was paid. I am receiving bill from DirecTV for early termination fee and for the month of October. I need this account to be closed, please advise. I called back in November asking to send me the address, never sent originally when the account was closed in October, where the equipment should be returned and again i never received the information with instructions to where the equipment should be returned.
I am sick of poor service and high bills each month. DirecTV was good now it sucks. How do I get out of this? I spend more than $73.49 a month, so in my opinion DirecTV is a total rip off.
Cancelled my service with direct tv 3 months ago. just received a bill charging my visa card for 2 movies I watched 3 years ago. How can they get away with stealing money from people. I am sure I am not the only one this has happened to. If I had not payed why would you wait 3 years to bill me. Something is wrong with this.
Hi, I'm not sure if the DirecTV corporate office can help in any way but I'm being billed a cancellation fee for an agreement that was broken. When ordering this service, I was given a price which I agreed on so I switch from Cox to DirecTV. I only paid that amount once and after that the price went up. My husband called the complaint number several times to get this fix but they never fixed it. I made payments and never given the credit that they told my husband either. I didn't pay Novembers payment and it got cx. so my husband called them again and said we needed to talk to Century Link. But it isn't Century Link but instead DirecTV. Now I'm getting a cancellation fee of $380.00. I didn't break any agreement I made. I agreed, on a recorded line to pay $90 a month for TV and phone service together and that was never done. I'm so upset with DirecTV for not being truthful.
I have been a customer of Directv for over ten years. Since I downgraded my service to a less expensive package I have had a recurring issue with the so called "screen saver" interrupting programs that I am watching. The "screen saver" pops up every two hours and produces the Directv logo which can only be corrected by pressing the select button on the remote control to get back to the program that I had been watching. I was told by the support department last year that to resolve the issue I needed to upgrade my receiver's as the problem was due to the old equipment and they did not have a resolution for it. I agreed to upgrade and was sent two new receiver's and attempted to install them and discovered that they would not set up. I advised the support department of the problem and was told a technician would have to come to my home to correct the problem. It took two weeks for the technician to arrive. Upon getting the receiver's to work I specifically asked the technician about the screen saver issue and he indicated that he had never heard of such a problem. In fact his receiver had never had this issue and assured me that the new receiver's would resolve the problem.
As I watched programming later that day I discovered the same problem was still occurring. I contacted the customer support department again and described the issue and was bounced from one person to another with no resolution. I requested a supervisor respond and was told there was no one available. I continued to insist that someone other than a support representative respond to my issue. I was finally connected to a supervisor who advised me that all of Directv receivers had this "screen saver feature" built into them and that all of the customers had to push the button every time it activated. I know this statement is not true as many of my neighbors and friends have Directv and do not experience this issue. I requested that I be transferred to a manager or superior that could more effectively speak to the issue. I was told that no one was available and they would have someone call me back. This was two months ago and so far no one has contacted me and the problem continues. It appears that Directv has retaliated against me for downgrading my service package.
I was a customer of DirecTV for almost 10 years. I was never late on a payment or had any problems, never had a single DirecTV complaint because you were in a bundle with Verizon. The week of Sept 14th, I canceled your service and spoke to both Verizon and you. both confirmed that I was cancelled and that you would be sending me a box for equipment return. I called today when I received a bill from you. When I called to ask why I was billed, I was told there was no record of me ending your service. You could see however that I ended Verizon service. Your manager Denise #100812467 said that it sounded right that I stopped service but if she didn't see a note in my file, then too bad, I owed the bill. I will NEVER go back to you, and I will go to every review spot I can to let people know how you treat a long time customer. I hope this very small bill that you sent me is worth losing customers and the respect of the community.
I received change in DirecTV billing from $42 to $76, when I called to ask why, the service agent only took notes to document but could not resolve. Ask for Manager, Yolanda got on the phone and explained that I had been given a promotional discount for the first year and I signed for it. I stated I had not and the promotion that was to continue was because when initially signing up the phone agent told me I would have a select channel on the Basic package which was not true as the technician completed his install and turned on Direct TV system and the Channel was not on, he called support and they indicated it was only on the Choice Package. Here I have a Coupon, a technician who just drilled holes in my roof to install the antenna and they are telling me I have to opt for the Choice Plan, in which was to be reduced by the again Manager on the phone.
Now I see this was a temporary thing, and now the cost is $34 more a month with one year left. Yolanda, kept talking down to me by continuing the conversation, "Darrel, you realize, Darrel, you signed, Darrel you agreed" This is not a conversation but a black female that used her gender and race as she has in her own family environment to control a situation while avoiding resolve. I want to hear from someone with logic, I want Yolanda to be removed from the supervisory staff along with a letter of apology, it will only get worse if DirecTV does not take care and step in and view this matter.
i was trying to pay my past due account of 134.00 and my card was declined because I forgot to transfer money to my account before calling to pay the bill and only 60.79 was taken out of my account towards the bill. Then, I called again and payed 74.00 toward my past due balance and they still refuse to turn my service back on . My bank said the 60.79 was taken out of my account and I also got online and it showed the 60.79 was taken out of my account and also, I called my bank and the teller told me that is was taken out of my account. I called and talked to your representative and they are saying that it was not taken out of my account and not showing on their side. So here is my complaint and would like my service to be turned back on .
I ordered for 8 tvs. 1st occurrence att forgot to schedule installation they took 100.00 of my money. I called they found their error and schedule me for 8 tvs again. the tech came out and advised me I could only watch 4 tvs and only brought 4 boxes I had to pay 459.00 again. they then scheduled direct tv to come out I had to pay 534.00 again for Direct Tv and they still only set me up for 4 boxes when i called she said they had to reschedule me to add 4 hd boxes and 4 genies. Now they can't seem to get my order correct and they have taken over 1,000.00 dollars. I am so pissed they have taken all my money Nobody can seem to do any thing about it.
I have a four unit apartment building in Detroit Michigan 48207. There are seven satellite dish attached to the building building and some installed on the garage roof. DirecTV equipment has caused damage to the roof and building structure, bricks are falling from building, leaks, coupled with garage roof leaking. I'm submitting the matter for corrective actions by your company. I want the equipment removed and repairs made or I am filing a complaint with DirecTV corporate offices!
Not happy with the DirecTV channels that are not on, all the sports that I do not watch and all the jewelry channels that's are on not what I signed up for. I loose my picture all the time I am very unhappy with your service its a ripoff.
I have been a direct TV Customer since 2005 About 3 months ago i discovered that direct TV was over billing me they were charging me for two receivers at 10.00 per receive for two years but i only had one receiver. After four calls and hours on hold they agreed to issue a credit to my account It never happened so i called the today spoke to a supervisor who informed me they will not refund the 24 months of over billing but she offered me 20.00 Total credit on my account. Do i have options yes i do.
I cannot believe that tasteless commercial Hanna and her horse. Despicable. An insult to woman everywhere. And I'm not even a feminist. Take it off the air and save what's left of your dirty reputation. What the hell does that commercial series have to do with a cable provider at all. Poor marketing.
I was on a month to month service after my contract had expired with Directv. I was not told in Feb 2015 I was in a 12mos contract. I was given a discount becuase of nuerous billing issues and a 3mos free service HBO and other premium channels. The rep stated I would be able to pay month to month and end my cintract anytime. I was very specific on that or I would never have kept Directv . I asked Directv to pull the call on my account for 2/24/15, information can easily be verified. This type of issue is why I now choose to end my service with Directv at the end of the month. Billing issues has plagued my account since the second year. I only want a company that is honest and bill me for services rendered. The customer service rep had to be seeking a quota to fill but I refuse to be held hostage because Directv can't keep up with their competitors.. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS SERVICE WITH THIS COMPANY. BEWARE !!!!!!!!
Called to cancel November 2014 directv service, was offered to suspend service for 6 mos. I refused because I was not sure when I would need service again and directv kept pushing the 6 months suspension with the loyalty bit and all the great benefits that comes with 16 year customer loyalty perks and how they would remind me before my 6 months was up to see if I needed extend the suspension. I explain to them I was moving to a different state, was not sure if that would work for me and did not even have a new address, they assured me being a loyal customer they would get me going at new location when I got ready even with a new box, since my biggest complaint was having a dinosaur box. SO I TOOK the offer to suspend service.
Forward 6 months. NO 6 month reminder notification. Got bill for 82.00 immediately after 6mos suspension was up, not 30 days after the 6 months for service they claim was turned back after the 6 months at the old location in Texas where I use to live that do not exist anymore (moved house) and the equipment/box in a storage in another state. Called about this, the only thing they can do now is disconnect the service, WHAT! ( service that is not ON at all) And send a kit to return the equipment/box to them in 21 days. Called DirecTV corporate office to file an official complaint, no answer!
I tried telling them my place was not ready and s/b in 2 more months and just needed to extent suspension. Well, a company as big as directv do not a plan to extend a suspended service. Really? Now, I have more problems than it's worth, must go looking for their dinosaur box in storage in another state when I could have been done with them If I could have just cancel in November 2014. Also, was told I did not have to pay the 82.00 and they have cleared bill to show 0 balance. I asked about the credit where I had overpaid on my acct and they say I do not have one. Now, must call billing to figure that out. This day and time people do not have what people had years ago, compassion. I don't believe these people care about our concerns, just another day on the job for the pay check.
I inadvertently switched checks between you and a credit card company. Instead of spending a few minutes of staff time and a postage stamp to return the check to me, I received a cancellation notice. Since I didn't receive the returned check, I wasn't aware of the error until receiving the cancellation notice and the following occurred. You still haven't received the past due payment - in 19 years with your company I would bet our payment hasn't been late 5 times. You cost me $5 for your late payment fee, $4.18 fee from the credit card company, and $15.00 to stop payment on the check (by the way - where is it?. You cost me the time to figure out the source of the problem, including time on the phone with your representative, who I could hardly understand.
This is the second major disappointment since we renewed your service about a year ago. We were told we would have wireless remote genies, but when the installation crew arrived they said the wireless units were not yet available in our area. We were required to pay an extra $50 to have the antenna installed at ground level, instead of on the roof where I couldn't reach it to remove snow.
I used my card to pay on someone account after they end there service you thought it would be right to charge my account for his final bill. I explain to you that this was not my account and they pretty much said Tuff sh** and kept my money. This is theft and if I could I would press charges for theft because a normal people who takes money off other people card without permission is considered theft and one day you should be sued for it. I turned it into my bank as a theft. If u people want to get I hold of me to make this right. I will tell everyone how direct TVs fuck me out of my money and I hope my bank sues if you don't get hold of me thanks mike
After many years of using Direct TV, and paying ALL my bills, I decided to use AT&T Uverse and changed over. I had no problem disconnecting. I paid all my bills in full. I sent in the cards from the units as directed by Direct TV. I received a few letters from Direct TV trying to get me back, but I have decided to stay with AT&T. After disconnecting I received statements indicating a 0 balance which were correct.
Yesterday, I received a bill from Direct TV for 3.99. They charged me for a pay per view charged dating back to 2007. I called to complain about this charge but the customer service person said only billing could help me with that. I called the billing number and got an automated voice. This did not help. So I am writing to complain about this. This is ridiculous! If you insist on charging me for an eight year old charge. I will need you to send me a record of ALL my charges and payments for that year. Account number is 38075316 It is only $3.99 but it's the principle of the thing.
I had to vacate a house that was sold and called to cancel my service. I was talked into suspending for 6 months instead. ! was told after 6 months I would be contacted and then either send back box or call for new dish installation in new location. Sounded good, I was moving and this was one last thing to worry about.....I thought. I was contacted at the end of the term and told them I would not reconnect and they said no problem and sent me a box to sent my box and remote back. This was my third location with DTV and I was still happy. Then 2-3 weeks later I get a bill for a half month...$63. I called twice to get this corrected and the help doing so was terrible. Even the two managers I demanded to talk with. Finally sent in a written complaint weeks ago and am still being harassed. Three automated calls today Sunday 4/12/15 already. The fools are also once again sending me all the monthly promotional and regular junk mail one gets when they really do have an account. This is one company that I have really lost all respect.
I haven't received any bill yet this month and my service was shut off. I called and spoke with someone and they spoke with their supervisor and said it was ok to turn the service back on due to the fact that we never received any bill or notice saying it was Guna be shut off if we did we would have paid it. We agreed to pay the $61 by the date they offered and two people said it would get turned on today and as long as we paid the $61 on time they would not interrupt service. They transferred over to another department to get it turned back on and there they could not do it. after 2 hours on the phone the lady said her computer froze and we had to hang up and call back again. We called back again and spoke with someone who said they could not turn the service back on today and she didn't kno what the other person was talking about. S
he said she had to transfer me to someone else.....now I'm on my 4th customer service representative....there the guy said there was nothing he could do and when asked to speak to his supervisor he would not let us. We have been a customer for over a year and a half always paid our bill and he didn't care when we said we wanted to leave. Very disappointed this was all over $61 and they kept pushing us from person to person and each person said something different. The first person said it was ok to turn back on service and even okayed it with their supervisor! U shouldn't promise something to your customers and then say otherwise! We wasted over two hours on the phone. Completely disappointed! Would never recommend them to anyone! Even spoke with my brother and he is canceling as well!
A returning customer from previous year expecting a better services from the last time which wasn't so as we had began our services that we had noticed that our bill had increased and less customer service meaning that they would deliberately ignore some things such as rebates discounts freebies as such and that I had filled a complaint against them to cancel our services which was also ignored . If they do not recover from this then we will definitely cancel & demand a full refund and that I don't mean a debit card that i do mean a money order or a cashiers check.
On September 30, 2012 I switched to DIRECTV from Time Warner Cable because I was tired of the cable company's repeated "Sorry, we can't do anything to correct our mistakes" customer service attitude. I regretfully feel I am receiving the same disappointing customer service from DIRECTV. I am a first time satellite TV customer so I made sure I had a list of questions written down to ask during my initial installation. I had a receiver installed in my bedroom which is the only place I had a television at the time. Knowing I would be purchasing another television for downstairs soon after, I specifically asked the installer about the process for getting a 2nd receiver. He went downstairs and checked the outlet and told me it was fine for a receiver. I asked if there would be any extra charge. He said I just needed to call DIRECTV to add a receiver and a monthly charge of âlike $6 or $7â would be added to my bill.
On November 19th, per my conversation with the installer, I called DIRECTV to add a receiver and to my surprise I was told I would be charged $150 plus a monthly equipment charge. I was fine hearing about the monthly charge because I was aware of that however I was appalled to hear about the $150 charge for the receiver. I told the customer service representative about my conversation with the installer and the representative told me "I'm sorry Ms. Orange but our installers often don't know what they are talking about when it comes to DIRECTV policies. We can not do anything about the $150 charge for the 2nd receiver".
Well, that is unfortunate misinformation and a mistake on the installer's part that should be rectified fairly. Given my plans for purchasing another television that would need a receiver within less than 2 months after my initial installation, I surely would have asked the installer to leave the 2nd receiver with me on the day of my installation to avoid the $150 charge had I known the truth about the cost of adding a receiver after the initial installation. Last night I found a DIRECTV Equipment Lease Agreement online which does state the $150 fee for additional receivers ordered after the initial installation however this lease agreement was never gone over with me nor was I ever asked to sign one. This misinformation was the Installation Technician's fault and miscommunication that I should not have to pay $150 for. The Technician's ID number is MANCO40332.
I would appreciate if this mistake on DIRECTVâs part was handled fairly by waiving the $150 charge this one time because of your employeeâs miscommunication. By doing so, you will have a loyal customer. If this can not be resolved fairly, I am sorry to say that I will be counting down the months of my contract and you will not have a repeat customer in 24 months.
In March of 2012, I called AT&T to sign up for Uverse and internet. They informed me that Uverse was not available where I lived but they had a partnership with Direct TV. I called Direct TV and informed them that I had my house up for sale and would be moving and specifically asked if there would be a charge to move and was told "No". I even questioned them because it seemed odd to me.
I would have stayed with cable and waited until after I moved. I was then offered a position transfer by my company from IL to NV. I sold my house and was living in a hotel for a month before moving to NV. Direct TV told me that they would suspend my service for 6 months since I was living in an apartment and did not know how long it would be before I bought a house.
Once I was moved into a house, I received a notification from Direct TV that I needed to begin paying for my service again. I called to have the installation scheduled and was told that there would be a $235 fee. I asked how much it would be to get out of my contract and was told $295. I argued and they said they could escallate my complaint and a supervisor would pull the recording of my call from March and call me back within 72 hours.
They told me that in order to escallate the case, they had to charge my account for the $235 and schedule installation. I told them to schedule it out two weeks to allow time for me to hear from the supervisor and resolve this issue. I waited 9 days and did not receive a call. I called again and was again told that I should hear from a supervisor any day. I told them to push out the installation another week. I waited 5 days and still did not hear from a supervisor.
I called AGAIN and this time I was told they could transfer me to a supervisor. They transfered me to a supervisor and she informed me that I was required to pay the installation fee and there was nothing she could do and that the supervisor is not the person to pull the recording from Mar and do the research but I would have to file a complaint on this website. In addition, I was informed that to get out of my contract would actually cost me $400! I asked why I had been told $295 a month ago and he said the other representative made an error. I am beyond angry with Direct TV.
I am tight with money at this time and I told the supervisor that I would like to do another 3 month suspension to get caught up before doing this and she said that it was not possible to remove the $235 from the account now. I feel that none of these representatives were willing to stand behind what I had been told or to work with me and allow me a few more months to come up with the money for this installation fee that I did not anticipate due to the false statements made to me.
I have not yet said anything on facebook or twitter about this but will absolutely be slamming Direct TV and definitely will switch my service to Uverse (who charges NO fees!!!) as soon as my contract is up. I don't know why anyone in their right mind would use Direct TV with the horrible customer service you have. I would greatly appreciate some form of resolution in this matter.
WTF is up with DirecTV not carrying the Lakers games? We have a 93-year-old in our house - this may be her last season - and she can't watch the Lakers because of stupid political disputes. Get your sh*t together and do it now. And no, it doesn't help that you "rewarded loyal customers" with free NFL Season passes, now that I know it was about bribing us to stay with you for a year before the Lakers season started. I have paid so much money for the nba leauge pass and I can't watch any of the lakers game what type of crap is that. I hope direct tv loses alot of customers for this
I have Direct TV in 2 states. I have been a Direct TV cutomer for a long time. The customer service has declined exponentially. I requested the NFL package in my South Carolina home. Customer servise said yes I have it and referred me to technical. Technical insisted that I never ordered it and was extremely rude about the entire conversation.
I now know why Diect TV makes you sign up for 2 years. It's because their employees are disrespectful and rude. Since you can't leave them for 2 years--they really don't care how you feel.
I couldn't believe what my babies were watching on "their" channel. I heard the foulist words and discussions about sex coming from my kids TV.. This show belongs on another channel. What in the world prompted Nick to put this kind of show on? If this continues I will cancel ALL of my Nick shows. There are plenty of other channels for this kind of discussions between women but it does NOT belong on my grandchildrens favorite channel. I don't even want to know what will come next. Every parent & grandparent in our area is disgusted. PLEASE MAKE A CHANGE OR WE WILL!!!!!!!
We recently had Dirct tv installed and was offered a "package" deal which included free movie channels for 3 months and free NFL Ticket. The installer showed me where the NFL games were, (channel 700s)and told me to enjoy the games on Sunday. Well, Sunday came but I did not have access to NFL Ticket. I also do not have the free movie channels as promised. When I complained to them, they lied and said they had not promised those things in my package.
They said we were locked in to a 2 year contract and there was nothing they could do about it. Funny enough, they let my wife make an agreement over the phone to alter the contract by paying more each month, but would not allow us to add the NFL Ticket we were promised the first time. I HATE to be lied to.....Sign up with Direct tv....you WILL be lied to!

I was requested by your customer service rep to write this memo to describe my situation;Â As I received the phone call by CBE Collection (Ms. Lili) regarding $63.28, I called and spoke with your Customer Service person on Sept. 26, but her explanation regarding $63.28 has not been cleared enough. I never received any bill of $63.28 from Direct TV before, yet I received the phone call from CBE Collection agent.
I always have paid my monthly bill through Verizon (I participated in triple package deal such as Internet, telephone and direct TV) on time and therefore I am very upset about your approach to treat loyal Customers like me. I am not in the position to pay the bill until you explain the entire situation adequately and apologize me for such behaviors and actions. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

It has taken Direct TV 3 months to get a change made on my account. I called in July to downgrade my service it is now October and I'm still being charged the same amount. On top of that they are charging me $125 per receiver box (2) that I called to disconnect and NEVER received the box to return them in. Come to find out they were sending it to the address I lived a year ago even though the rep "confirmed" my address. They have no accurate notes to go by and I'm stuck having to call them every month and spend about an hour each time trying to get this resolved....each time I get the same answer, that it is now taken care of and I should have no further problems. LIES!! I'm so sick of Direct TV!!!
Well I am new to direct TV, so new I am getting ready to pay my second bill. First I did not appreciate all the wires that ware left exposed after my install. Now on this date Oct. 27, 2012 I am not getting any service. So, I go through all the steps that my box recommend. After several attempts and several failed attempts I called customer service. Well at this time I go through the same attempts as be for. Well after doing what customer service asked me to do on the inside. Customer service asked me to go outside and check the dish. See if I can move it or if it has been moved. Shouldn't I be getting paid for doing there job. Well now I am with out direct TV service until Monday! Sure is funny they want there payment on time but the paying customer has to wait ! This is bull!
Skip in Audio Have gone thru connect and checking for loose cables several times and now getting a tech to come out and check or replace receiver. After five or six calls and talking to reps. all over the U.S. no help. I called to cancel my service and the rep. is going to send me a replacement receiver will have to see if this takes place as promised. Direct TV's service is almost 0-0-0, after the holidays I will change service and maybe even go back to terrible Cox Cable thier service is better than Direct.
When is Direct going to figure it out that one person must follow thru on the complaint until it it is taken care of and be responsible for the complaint. Direct is so big now that every thing gets lost but the 1st time sale. I know my $120 per mo. will not hurt Direct Giant but maybe a million will. Net Flex paid no attention to the customer and look what happened. Some people has got to have Direct TV. but I don't. Good bye after the holidays.
We purchased Direct Tv with the understanding we would have available one free move within our two year contract. This did not depend on bill paying history or after one year of service. We asked the sales rep from Sam's club these questions, he assured us that we would be able to do a move for free. We had asked this do to the fact of a potential job transfer. Well we had to move to another state. Now Direct Tv wants to charge a $100 fee not free to transfer service. This would not be an issue however when we were told it was for free and assured it.
Now it is an issue. Does anyone have a really good number to Direct Tv to truly voice a complaint? Oh and they said they would get back with me right away, lol that was two weeks ago. I guess I call the FTC and FCC like i've had to with Sprint.
I have had Direct TV's satellite programming service since 2003 and have kept their service even after the contract expired years ago. Last month (October 2011), I cancelled their service due to bad economic times. Their agent told me not to make any payments until I received the final prorated bill in the mail. I had been using their internet-based system to make payments which required "my authorization for any transaction". The final bill was going to be paid when I received it.
The final bill was for $100.08 which was reasonable. Direct TV did not wait until they received my payment; instead, they entered into my checking account and withdrew the money without my authorization - this is an outright action of theft! I am the only one with the authority to make payments from my checking account (whether online or via hardcopy check). This is a breach of trust and actions of a company that will steal from anyone the first chance that they get when it suits their purpose.
This cannot be allowed to happen. It is a legal issue which the government needs to take action to prevent. If a company advertises a service option to pay via their internet connection, this does not allow them the right to enter and take your money anytime that they want without your authorization just because you have paid in the past using their internet service. It demonstrates that when a corporation is given access to privy information from their own loyal clientele, they will use that information to steal from the client.
Did they think that after 8 years of paying their programming service, all of a sudden they were not going to get paid the last $100.08? I run my own business. If I disrespected my clients the same way, I would have been out of business along time way. If I took the same actions as Direct TV, I would be in jail.
I felt cable was too expensive and so decided to try DirecTV. Not sure who to complain to for DirecTV in Dayton, OH. I felt mislead when I saw their website. It specifically said that: free professional installation! No equipment to buy! No start-up costs! I scheduled a time for them to come out and install the service.
When the installation guy came out, he came running up to me like he was angry and looking for a fight. I would like to say his name was Joyce because he was acting like a real bitch. His actual name was Jason Wilson. He looked around and then charged me $7.15 for a metal pole and after talking with the maintenance guy, he brought over a metal tripod. He said I was lucky because they cost about $80 and the maintenance guy gave that one to me for him to install DirecTV.
Didn't their website say, no costs, free installation. He was messing with my phone and I told him to leave the phone chord alone. He said he was just trying to help me out. He then did the installation and asked to see my internet service. He said he didn't think he could install the service. Later he told me that I had all the channels more than 285+. Later I found out that he never hooked up the internet service and I had none of the OnDemand channels.
I called the company and first they said it takes 24 hours for all the channels to load. After 24 hours, I called back and they said, they would look into. After I told them he did not hook up the internet service. They said they would send someone else out to hook it up. Someone later called me from the company and told me they could not hook up the internet service without a router. They said they don't carry or service routers. Didn't their website say no costs and free installation? They told me to go out and buy a Linksys Router.
He sounded like he was laughing which irritated me even more. Didn't their website say no costs and free installation? I told him that it was not the service that was promised to me and no one told me about having or getting a router and that he had aleardy charged me $7.15 for a metal pole that he used to put the dish on, it's not like I'm going to take that pole with me any where. I told him if they could not get the service to me the way it was advertised, they needed to come and take the service completely out of my home because I will not accept partial service of what was promised to me. After going a few rounds with him, I called DirecTV and someone else told me that I did not need a router and that they could do a hard line installation and all I needed was an open ethernet port.
Someone else from the company later called and told me that I needed a router. So, I told him I would look around for router and call them to come back and complete the installation. I am looking for a router now but I am so angry, I can't sleep and decided to follow up and write a few letters of complaints. Not sure who to send the complaint letter to here in the midwest. False and misleading advertising is illegal. If they can't provide the service offered in their advertisement then it becomes a breach of contract by their not living up to their promises on their website and in their own contract, if they fail to perform the services provided, they have breached the contract and that opens room for contract cancellation. I am not happy. Upset that I had to deal with very unpleasant individuals, people lying to me and feeling robbed.
Have feedback for DirecTV?
