Is $8.99 Protection Plan charge per TV?

Is the Basic Protection Plan $8.99 per household or $8.99 per TV? I have two TV's and am being charged twice. Is that correct?

Just to clarify it doesn't cover the actual tvs just the receivers, remotes, cabling, service calls and  shipping for replacements. 24 hour tech support.

Re: Is $8.99 Protection Plan charge per TV?

The optional equipment protection plan ($8.99) covers the account. Without it service calls are $99, delivery of replacement boxes $19.95, remotes $15. It does not cover the TV sets themselves as that would be Protection Plan Premier which is about $19.95 monthly (not recommended if TV sets are still under warranty or another protection plan).

 

If you see the charge listed twice, check the dates of it in case it is showing for different months. If the dates overlap then that is an error and you will need to call Directv.

Re: Is $8.99 Protection Plan charge per TV?

I was lied to about the protection plan.  I chatted with a rep to add the protection plan and was told that the 8.99 was the one that added protection to all devices.  Unfortunately, I needed to file a claim but was denied because I had the wrong plan.  Even though I had the chat transcript that said that they still denied my claim.  Make sure you are paying for what you are being charged.  I guess it's our responsibility to make sure they are selling what they are selling.
