Hi, I'm new here and have some questions. I am wanting to switch to Directv from another company. I called Direct and they said I have to have a $150 deposit. I had no soon uttered the last number in my ss number and they said this. I know there is no way they knew my credit that fast. Do they normally ask for $150 from all new customers? Also, can anyone tell me if that $150 will get me 4 recievers, or will I only get one with the deposit? I don't have a major credit card, I have a debit card with the Visa logo on it. Will I be able to mail in my payment every month, or send it by money gram? I can't have it billed to my debit card every month, because I don't always have much cash in my account. So I may not have the money at the exact same time every month. I'm just confused about all of this, not knowing what they are going to require. They claim it's easier than ever to get Directv, but I suppose it's only easy if you have a major credit card with plenty of credit on it.
If anyone can help me with some of these questions, I'd appreciate it. If anyone knows, could you state all the requirements of Directv and possible complications?
With the other company I'm with, I could only get two recievers, and I had to purchase them, because of something to do with my credit. I had to go with a satelite store, purchase the equipment through them, they installed it, and I had to have $100 showing in my bank account at the time, and they started the service for me. That was confusing as well, and I still don't remember how it all went exactly. The one thing I do remember is I could only afford to get a twin dish, when I wanted 4 recievers, but was told it would be much more expensive, and the cost of extra recievers was $150 each.
So anyone know how I can get 4 recievers from a satelite company? I have no credit, and I have a debit card. I also don't want to billed on my debit card every month. Which is my best way to go?
