    price hike and no relief for a customer fo almost 10 years

    There is a difference between griping and sharing a experience. Posting here may not solve anything for him but it allows others having the same or similar experience to realize that we may all eventually be caught up in a disturbing trend.

    ESPN?

    Let ESPN go dark and see what happens. You want to see a reaction from the subscribers, take away ESPN. Forget the other Disney channels. Losing ESPN for sports bars alone this time of year would be devastating to "D".

    ESPN?

    Once upon a time I would agree with you Tampa8. But today Sports and especially ESPN is so ingrained in our TV culture that I think ESPN holds the cards. Of the millions of "D" subscribers, sports is either the only reason they subscribe to "D" or more than 50% of the reason. Not just for live...

    ESPN?

    Sports programming in general rule the airways. If it wasnt for ESPN and the various other sports channels there would be no cable or satellite TV. The profits are so high that it's really hard to fathom.

    2 years and..........

    They have no reason to compete with their only rival? They absolutely need to compete with Dish. 90% of their advertising over the last 25 years has been against Dish. One commercial after another has them directly comparing themselves against Dish. It's just that DirecTV is gone and ATT is a...

    Technical Nightmare

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean. The freeze lasts for 2 seconds then continues on. Sometimes happens once an hour sometimes only a couple of times a day. But it always happens. Especially annoying during a sporting event. I've hit the back button to see if the freeze is still there but it...

    Technical Nightmare

    The last tech told me that the last thing any tech wants is to have another tech called out for the same problem. Apparently it is a bad thing for them. Three techs in four weeks. Each new one knew this was an ongoing problem and exactly what the previous tech did. I understand that Even though...

    DirecTV Intro price rockets up $25, or 71%

    They probably raised their price so we could watch the PAC-12 NETWORK. Oh wait.

    Technical Nightmare

    In my case they ran a new cable and installed a new splitter. I had a c61k for awhile but the freeze frame problem was not improved. Any insight as to why the freeze frame could not be duplicated by rewinding and playback? It seems like if there was some kind of interruption to the sigal that...

    Technical Nightmare

    Jimbo, I may be wrong but I thought that the hs17 required the c61 to operate at all. I had the problem with old c61 and hs17.

    Technical Nightmare

    Three different techs visited in a 5 week period for this problem. I am experiencing a 2 second freeze frame a dozen or more times a day. When I rewind 10 seconds the freeze frame does not repeat itself. HS17 and C61 connected directly to a 1 year old high end Samsung TV. After replacing every...

    NFL in 4k

    It's difficult for many of us to see that big a difference because some 720P and 1080i broadcasts are not created equal. Some shows, even on the same channel, look better than others. Look at a rerun of an older Law and Order. Superb PQ compared to some of what we see now. Different studios use...

    NFL in 4k

    Yesterday I had to swap out my (2 week old) replacement c61k for my old c61 (bedroom) because of daily sound stuttering problems. So I guess no more 4K watching for me.

    Upgrade Advice

    I switched from the Hopper to the Genie2 for two main reasons. The first and by far the most important is the superior picture quality with DirecTV. The difference is very noticeable on my 82 inch Samsung. The second reason is the ability to watch 4K. I'm watching the US Open right now. But for...

    AT&T Should sell DIRECTV to DISH

    You can't compare the Sirus/XM merger to a possible Directv/Dish merger. Other than the fact that they are all four in the media delivery category the main difference is in the logistical differences. DirecTV and Dish cannot directly use each others satellites. The on site equipment (dishes...

    AT&T Should sell DIRECTV to DISH

    Hate to hijack this scintillating rural discussion but there is no chance in the world tha Dish and DirecTV will ever ever merge. Zero chance.

    Freeze Frame

    I've had the hs17 for a couple of years now along with a c71. The really defining point is that when I rewind and play back the freeze is not there. When I explained that to several cr's it's like I was asking them how a black hole works. I have come up the line to second stage techs but to no...

    Freeze Frame

    I have been living with it and I'm glad you're not have the same problem. My question now becomes even more confusing. Why me and not you? If it's been happening all across the country I wonder what reasons DirecTV is giving for the cause of the problem. When you call them they always have you...
