DirecTV - Billing sucks

Posted: 2014-07-17 by    dmcampbell63
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I got tired of never knowing how much my bill would be, so I called in January and told them, NO NFL TICKET, and take any and all promotions off of my account. I would rather pay more, than never know what my bill was going to do. So my bill drops a good deal. This morning, I find they took out an additional $42 out of my bank account. I called and a CS rep took it off, but only CREDITED my account. When you are budgeted $140 for your bill, and it randomly jumps to $190, that hurts. I asked to speak to a stupidvisor, he told me that I did authorize it, and they took it out. And now, I just have...

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
My name is Victoria Harris, i was a customer of Directv for 8 years, on May 2, 2014 I discontinued my service with Directv. My bill was finalized on May 21, 2014. Final payment was $51.87 which was paid in full. Now, on July 1, 2014 there was a deduction of $14.79 from my bank account. First and foremost, I never authorized payment from my account nor did I receive any statement regarding the deduction.
I called Directv's billing office to ask why did they fraudulently take money from my account...I was told by a directv representative, that there was a charge from 2011 for a Pay Per...

DirecTV - Breach of contract

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
In June/July 2013 I moved from Colorado to Missouri. I initiated a call to DirecTV to move my service. DirecTV indicated that as part of the move I would be receiving an upgraded receiver but that it would require another 24 month commitment. I agreed.

I then called to complain about the new receiver not having previous functionality and found that they had actually downgraded my equipment from an HR-34 to an HR-24. However, they indicated I was still obligated under my new 2 year commitment. Despite agreement from CSR and TSR that I was never upgraded DirecTV refuses to release me...

DirecTV - Kirk carlisle - smart circle ft. Wayne, in area employing creepos

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
About two years ago I subscribed to Directv. The installation went well but much to my surprise the technician was flirting w me. He later on texted me praising and complimenting me about how I looked and thanking me how nice I was. I never gave it much thought. A couple of weeks ago I met someone in my area who just had a similar experience and to my greater surprise it was with the same cable guy named KIRK CARLISLE. Unfortunately, she entertained his advances and the flirting went quickly to rude sexual messages and even entertained him at her place. Soon afterwards, she found out that the cable...

I was promised a free upgrade to a High Def converter if I stayed with them for an extra 18 months. The time came, I made the call, and they said they do not have, and never had, such a program. I talked to a supervisor and even threatened to cancel, and she didn't seem to even care-either about the broken promise or my willingness to cancel. The other Dish is available, as is cable. The switch is coming soon....

DirecTV - Incompetent from A to Z

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Directv is the worst company I have dealt with in my 43 years. They have over billed me twice and didn't even refund my money (basically stole from me) until six months later. The DVR I have stopped working about 2 months ago and it was supposed to be replaced the next day but of course it never arrived. My HD service freezes up all the time. So I am getting over billed for a product that isn't even working. I was promised by a supervisor to have free movie channels to make up for the over billing. Guess what? They never showed up as an option. Directv is the most incompetent, disorganized,...

I have had billing issues 2 months in a row with being over charged. I've called in each time, and each time I get a different call center person that cannot help me. I don't think these people are trained very well, if at all. My issue has been this; I cancelled service and was informed on my DirecTV account page to call in for a special reconnection offer. I called in a got to a rep, and they offered me promo rates to cut my bill to $41 plus tax a month. Hey great deal right?? So i signed back up... well big mistake on my part. The next day i wasn't receiving channels in my package,...

Been DirecTV subscribers for six years. Last year our HD DVD receiver began to malfunction. Tried many fixes and software upgrades provided by DirecTV but nothing worked. We kept asking for replacement equipment and were told that it's only available to new subscribers. Finally the receiver quit working and we canceled our service. After paying almost $100/month for six years, for crappy programming and equipment, we received a bill for $135 for the broken receiver. We will NEVER use DirecTV EVER. Customer service is non-existent....

DirecTV - Georgia, Stone Mountain - Disreputable Business Practices

1 yr ago I joined DirecTV/Clear internet bundle promotion, assured by the sales rep that the only way to lock in the price for the length of the contract was to sign for 2yrs, but surprise – surprise, my bill increased this month.

The billing rep said I was under a promo plan that expired after 1yr. I explained that I was told my rate wouldn’t change, and she said I was given miss-information. Paying more for such bad reception when the wind blows or it rains isn’t worth it, which is why I left my previous provider, who, it turns out, was infinitely better with...

DirecTV - unauthorized charges & no refund

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
DIRECTV has billing issue. Some government agency should investigate their unauthorized charges and refund. When I upgraded my service, I was asked if I wanted to have free 3 month trial of Showtime or some premier service. I clearly remembered that I said "NO I don't want the free trial. I don't have time to watch TV not even a minute and I subscribe TV only because my 4 year old kid watches kids programs." And i moved on and hang up the phone. Months later, I noticed that I've been charged extra money for the premier service that I rejected. I called and explained that...

DirecTV - Texas - Misleading Information/Installer Required Check Made Out To Him

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I am writing this to let future, potential customers be warned of a very questionable and unethical business practice forced on their customers by DIRECTV. They will send out a subcontractor who will do the installation, but they will wear a DIRECTV shirt. Do not let them install anything in your home until you ask them if they will require additional money (they will ask for a check and usually charge you at least $98 for their services). DIRECTV will not work with you on this matter and will tell you the only part of the 'free installation' is the standard installation which means hooking...

This is an old account 80018265 in my name (Nitanja Barnes) in the amount of $879.55, at the address of 5836 Hickory Commons, Memphis, TN 38141. I am disputing this bill because we sent the receivers back in the boxes that was provided for us. I was set up to get service at my address now when I called on Sunday everything was a go but then on Monday that is when the bill came up. I want to know how this bill is some much and I sent the equipment back to you. This is not making at sense so please take this off my credit because I do not owe this bill. This is really about the billing of the equipment.

DirecTV - Arizona, Tucson - Fake charges

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I called Directv regarding a charge of $99 that was taken from my bank account on 8-23-2013 after cancelling their service after 15 years with them. They said that was in the fine print in my original contract and that i still owed them $148 due to early termination because i had exchanged an obsolete cable box that stopped working 10 months ago. After an hour on the phone, they reversed the early termination fee of $100. I informed them that i would pay the HUGE outstanding balance of $48 next week and finished the call. my account now shows another charge from my account of $19.00 on 8-24-2013.Called...
