F#*kin' DirecTV!

I've had DirecTV for over a year now with little to no problems...until recently. Two weeks ago the dish was frozen over night, and now for the second time today ALL OF THE LOCAL CHANNELS ARE F'D!

The first stint lasted for about 3 hours earlier today, it just crapped out again...and I'm just about to head out for a burrito to enjoy with the sunday night game

According to the customer service dept, the problem is nationwide.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Yeah, if you have any billing problem, forget about it. Pay them whatever they say you owe . OMG, I will never go back to that company. I will go off the grid completely before I go back to Comcast . Try ATT for internet and maybe wowway, RCA, or someone else for cable.

I did like Direct T.V. but unless the dish was easy to get to, snow storms could get annoying. It was much more tolerable when my script loader worked... I mean, remember when the football player access cards were like gold? Then the P4 card came and..... not so good.

DIsh net working GREATTTTTTTTTTT glad i dropped Dtv like a bad habbit.


Still trying to figure out why people go with Direct tv you get robbed from the start. Just incase you dont know when you buy you 100 box from BB or where ever you really dont own the box you have to return them once you cancel service. 300 per box it you dont.

Dishnetwork only pay 5 dollars to rent the box

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Yes

I get all my bitching out of my system here on the board, so the effort involved in calling them to gripe seems too much after a thread like this

DirecTV has been pretty good to me from day one, the customer service makes it all worth any problems...I've just had two in two weeks

I've had DirecTV forever and it has been very good to me. I have the NFL Sunday Ticket, so I didn't notice any outages. I watched a bunch of games today without a problem.

Yeah Yeah, I've got it back too

It was out for 2 or 3 hours in the afternoon and again for a little bit around 6:30 or so.

I was thinking about getting directTV because it has WAY more HD channels than the chintzy Comcast wannabe (INsight) down here, but threads like this kill it.

Sucks Tommy. Hope it gets fixed and they give you free shit to compensate you for your trouble
