I recently discovered that DirecTv hosed me into another year of contract after I upgraded some equipment.
My question is this:

On Nov 1. Directv will be dropping some channels.
Now, to me that is a breach of contract, since when I signed up, they were part of my bundle.
Can I use this to be released from my contract without penalty?

Thanks!

If it happens, simply call to complain and they will give you some sort of discount for your trouble.

If you upgraded a recvr (to Hd ?) There is an automatic 2 year commitment attached ..... this has been common knowledge for many years now ....

My question is this:

How did Dtv "hose you" into another contract? When you add a reciver or get a replacement you sepak with not just the one rep but 2 reps that tell you about a contract. Did they hold a gun to your head? Come on now..

Actually, I don't think a replacement recvr, as long as it's the same recvr, there is a new commitment.

If it replaces defective leased equipment then no, there is no additional commitment.

Equipment upgrades trigger an extension of two years for customer to agree to be committed with subscribing to DirecTV. If it is too much a problem, you may want to consider biting the bullet, paying the early termination fee, and moving on to a different provider that comes closer to meeting your standards. It may seem, at first, too much a financial sacrifice; but that fee will cover about a couple months' worth of one's subscriptions; and the rest of the two-year period is one DirecTV makes no more money from what you would pay in programming subscription.
