If you buy a Direct TV receiver and get a good price because you agree to buy a year of programming and then do not subscribe does Direct TV
actually charge your credit card a penalty fee. Do you know of anyone who has ever paid this fee. I think it is just a scare tactic and that they don't really keep track of who is buying this stuff.
I'm a new subscriber and just bought my boxes the other day at BestBuy. They said my card would be charged $150 if I didn't activate my boxes within 30 days. When I asked why they said it was because D* assumed that anyone who didn't activate a box was using it illegally. Made sense to me.
