I know that all satellite providers have there issues but Directv just ticked me off!! We had Directv service for a year in and a half. An we were looking to save some money each month so we decided to switch to Dish network.
We had several problems with Directv, anytime it would rain just a little wewould lose the signal and we had to have them come out at one point and replace the whole dish just because something was malfunction on it!
Then when we got ready to switch we new we had an early cancellation fee but they were pro-rating it because we had a little less than six months left. It was around $70 dollars. So we got dish network in here andgot everything settled, when one day we noticed that they(directv) had taked $60 out of our account. We called and they said we were done and had a zero balance. So we thought that we were done with them. Well a few weeks later we noticed we had a difference in our checking account and come to find out they had taken an addtional $270 dollars out. Needless to say we were not happy and we had to dispute it through our bank and after about a week we were refunded.
I would must say that the service it's self is about the same as all the others. But on a good note they do have more channels to pick from. Their programming has alot more for the money as far as dishnetwork.
