Direct TV / inexcusable customer service

United States Review updated:
4
The day we dropped the "free" premium channels which were part of our new customer purchase plan, we lost reception on more than half of all other channels. We reported this the next day. We were walked through a number of steps by a customer service rep. Those did not work so he suggested we climb on the roof (we have a 3 story house) and check out the dish. We refused to do that and were told to give it a try for a few more days to see if the problem would correct itself. We called again the next day to set up a service call and were walked through more do-it-yourself repair steps. This process went on for 5 days. When a service call was finally set up we were told our warrenty had expired and we would have to pay for it as well as any repairs. We'd never of paying for repairs on something that was leased and not owned outright. We requested our contract be cancelled. We were then transferred to Tony (badge number U7402)in the Retention Depart in AL. He agreed to send a service person 1 week later to install all new wiring, a new dish, and new receivers at no charge to us. When the service tech arrived his work order did not match the agreement. He talked with Shane in ID to straighten out the matter. Shane authorized him only to test the receivers. They worked, but the problem was still there. More calls were made to Shannon and Tom in OK. Tom said is was a software problem. TO BE CONTINUED

STRONGLY AGREE.
TYPICAL, JERK YOU AROUND, SPIN THE WHEEL.
DECEIVING PRACTICE, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.
TIME TO MOVE ON TO WEB TV OR OVER THE AIR FREE.
I AM GLAD TO SEE IF SOMEONE COULD SHOOT THE SAT DOWN.

deceptive practices. Get you under contract then dispute contract agreements with programming prices and charges. Not a trustworthy service!

i have been a direct tv customer for years and i am appalled to learn you are discontinuing the weather channel, this will place millions of americans in harms way without their up to date forecasts.seems to me you could negotiate some agreement to keep this important service available.

Waited over four (4) hours for installation. Direct T.V. never showed up, and then they lied, and stated that they had called to reschedule the appointment (which they had not called). I had to take time off work for the installation, and they never offered an apology, only a new installation date. I was "going to be a new customer", and I am glad I found out about the awful customer service before officially obtaining the service. I demanded my money back for the equipment, and decided to stay with Dish.
