Channels removed from DIRECTV lineup (January 2017)

I am done with Directv!!! I pay alot of money to have your service and you pull this crap!! I am tired of you putting the consumer in the middle of your fight with the local stations without any compensation for the days that we are without local channels.  Lucky that the Patriots are playing on another channel!!!  My New Years resolution is to DUMP Directv.

Nexstar said they extended the date to August 2 and you said no. You need to decrease the monthly cost if you are not going to air local stations. Also yesterday, ABC was off air for over an hour because of technical difficulties. I will be calling another satellite company to change service.

NexStar keeps claiming that DirecTV cut their channels.  That's crazy. What possible incentive would AT&T have to do that? It's NexStar that decides when to cut their feed. And NexStar is the corporation demanding more money than AT&T is willing to pay. More power to AT&T!  They know that more rate increases will only drive away more customers. 

 

Oh, and switching providers will only help until your new provider goes through the same crap.

From TERRIBLE customer service, an APP that is worthless, and now we haven’t had NBC for weeks.  I am just about done with you. I don’t care why NBC isn’t on. All I know is we are paying for a full service we aren’t getting. I can get it elsewhere.

So Can I cancel my service for breach of contract. You are not providing the channels I signed up for. Channel 6 out of Lansing is the main Channel my Family watches.

Until your new provider gets hit with the same problem. So how much more will you pay to get it back?

No, as there is no breach the clause in the contract states that channels and programming are subject to change at anytime.  You are paying DTV to deliver sat channels not specific channels.

No. FCC regulations don’t allow Directv to provide an alternative.

Do you get channel 273, POP? I know that channel plays episodes of Young and the Restless every morning, the previous day’s show. You could also get a free trial of CBS All Access to catch up on the missed soaps. Or can you pick up CBS with an over-the-air antenna? Hope you get the channel back soon. One last thing you can do is contact DirecTV and ask them to send you a local channel connector kit, if it’s available.

Get an OTA antenna connected to the TV's OTA tuner.

Decided to go with Dish instead, as it offers more channels for less money.  ATT just kept slowly raising prices, offering specials instead of refunding over charges, specials ending causing bill to go up.  Tired of it.  Poor service, worse customer service.  No empathy, no desire to satisfy CONSUMERS, only interested in bringing in money for ATT.  Called to end service and was informed that I will be charged a full months service (less than a week into the month), even though I am not in a contract.  Somehow I am contractually obligated to pay for a full month, plus I am required to seek out a Fedex store to turn in equipment, since ATT/Directv can't seem to afford to send a box. The money spent just may be well worth the lesson to NEVER use an ATT service again.  They also dropped a local station that is important to those of us who live near the gulf coast.  A station on which we rely for storm informatio, evacuation and other safety concerns.  All because ATT is again unwilling to negotiate or,heaven forbid, pay for a service, as this may cut into their considerable profit derived from the customers   Doubtful there will be a response to this.  Their lack of ethics will prevent them prorating my bill for sevices I will not receive.

Your local channel removed their feed to DTV.  So you are moving to dish because they are cheaper yet you are blaming DTV for trying to keep cost down!  Have fun provider hoping when dish is hit with this problem. 

Since January the policy is now you pay for and receive service until the end of your billing cycle.
