    My 2 year contract is up! What to do?

    I'm in the same boat right now ... am hanging on until I know what's coming from D12 .... Dish will once again have a small advantage on price ... (They keep offering the new customer deals if I will come back) ... however they don't have GolTv .. a big one for me ... but they do have HRTV ...

    Coming back to dish...

    So you are happy to believe that Dish will do what they say they will do, but don't think that Directv will .... interesting ... I personally don't believe a word either of them says until I see it with my own eyes. Once Dish regains the upper hand I expect complacency to set in (again) and...

    Coming back to dish...

    ... but it was 18 months ago .... you can only make a decision based on the information that is available to you at the time that you are ready to make a commitment. 18 months ago Directv was a MUCH better deal for me personally than dish. If I had to make a call now - i'd probably lean towards...

    Coming back to dish...

    I'm hanging around until the end of my contract with Directv .. (Feb/March?) will then make a choice between providers as I do each and every time my commitment ends ... I have zero loyalty to any provider ... the one that gives me the best deal at the time i'm ready to sign for an extra 24...

    Quit Calling me you bunch of idiots!

    Yup - I used to forward all marketing calls from a company directly to the sales line of the same company ... Unfortunately the VOIP provider I was using was very inconsistent so my better half insisted that I switch providers or face a life of constant nagging .... I switched providers...

    Quit Calling me you bunch of idiots!

    The last few calls I got were ... Jul 06, 2009 03:21 PM Jul 07, 2009 02:00 PM Jul 07, 2009 06:09 PM Jul 08, 2009 01:29 PM I work from home - so going out when I am supposed to be working isn't really an option, i'm amazed at how much my complaining seems to anger the fan boys, I would...

    Signing Up for Direct TV, am I a new customer in this scenario?

    I guess what you are trying to say is - if you find something that works for you - stick with it .. dish works for you - direct works for me and the OP ... ;)

    Signing Up for Direct TV, am I a new customer in this scenario?

    as soon as you cancel or the service has been transfered Directv will start bombarding you with calls to get you back. If you can live without service for a week - you will be able to get a free "install" .. failing that - call back - ask for retention or cancellations and explain what is...

    French Open Mix Channel - Problem

    Agreed .. I tuned in earlier today and HD was awful on one of the channels (704 I think .. was watching the Blake match) I can't remember the last time i saw HD this bad. Wait .. yes I can .. it was on Dish. :p Edit - it was 705. Still looks like crap right now ... worst HD I think I have...

    A Note About The Ads

    I agree .. the new ads mean that I now have to scroll left/right to even read any of the forum posts ... very annoying. Probably 65% of the entire screen area was taken up with ads ... I removed the site from my firefox/chrome startup tabs. It's not worth the time/effort it takes to...

    Directv customer retention lies about DISH Network

    Directv is the best provider available to me .. i've had cable, dish and directv over the past 8-10 years and Directv is hands down the best of the three .. having said that ... The channels that I can get from alll three are pretty much the same ... (I get all channels - plus HD apart from...

    Directv customer retention lies about DISH Network

    Is this not your second "Discount" in as many months? You signed up in November .. got the equipment/discounts that were on offer ($23 + whatever promo was available at the time) Then an additional $15 per month because you sneezed, then an additional $20 per month + $75 ? That's $60+ in...

    Cox Communications HD Channels

    With no extra $$'s for the HD channels and not having to pay an extra $10 for the Fox Soccer Channel .... Plus the fact that they have my PBS in HD ... as well as channels my wife would watch (Lifetime HD + Lifetime Movies HD) + AMC HD, E! HD, + Travel ... I'm considering them as my next...

    Has Directv lost that HD leader feeling!

    In the past 12 months - my Satellite service has been down a total of 2 1/2 hours. (Eight or Nine 20-30 min outages) My Cable internet service was down for a total of around 36 Hours ... 4-5 outages in total. I'm 100% sure which of the services is more reliable in my household. The Directv...

    Quit Calling me you bunch of idiots!

    A federal law says that once I have asked them to stop calling me - they have to stop calling me ... if they call me they are breaking the law ... seems quite simple to me ... As my signature says however .. i like to whine ... doing it here will call them out in public .. each time they...

    Quit Calling me you bunch of idiots!

    Not answering will not stop the calls coming ... Bottom line is ... it is illegal for them to be calling me after I have asked them to stop .. once I have told them I no longer want calls from them .. I should not have to go out of my way to stop the harassment ..

    Quit Calling me you bunch of idiots!

    Yup - my current VOIP provider does not offer this service .. and I should not need to have this service .... Dish Network should follow the law ... but we all know how well they do that ... :rolleyes: Never mind .... let's hope a $10k fine will follow .... Edit - looks like they get more...
