A while back, I called Direct TV and inquired about their internet broadband service. I was told I didn't qualify because I was a "roaming" account.

A recent look into thier HDTV setup revealed the new leasing of equipment routine.

It strikes me they are tightening the reins to increase their profit margine. If they make it to difficult to use their equipment, I'll go looking elsewhere.

I don't use a tripod.I fastened the base of my dish to a 12x12"concrete patio block.After 4 years it has never blown over and is easy to store.

I've used Directv in my coaches for years....
I've also signed and sent in the DNS waiver and receive both the east and west coast network feeds...

I did have a problem about a month ago when I called to activate PBS. The first lady who sounded like she was from a distant call center simply said no,so I hung up and called back. I ended up being passed to a tech who took care of it for me....

I think the call centers are the real problem.

I agree, I originally became a Directv subscriber back in 1991 when Directv was new. I turned it off when I moved into my present home about 3 years ago because the HOA that I belong to paid for my cable as part of the HOA fees. I wasn't travelling much at that time so if I wanted intertainment I either used park cable or took DVD's with me.

When I bought my new Alpine since it had Directv in it I decided to reactivate my account. I called Directv while on the road and after being hung up on 6 times and losing them once due to poor cell signal I finally called back and told them I only wanted to speak to a supervisor. Each of the operators or "techs" that I spoke to up to that time sounded as if they were in India. The supervisor took care of my reinstatement of my account and got me back up and running very quickly. Because of all the difficulty I had she also took $15.00 my monthly bill for 6 months.

For rebelsbeach:

How did you get PBS activated? I use to have it but they cut me off a couple of years ago and said that PBS wouldn't me to have it even though I have the other east/west coast channels.

Thanks, Ron

Ron, I learned about it on the Datastormusers forum....Might have been a recent policy change and I DO pay something for it.
When I called and mentioned the RV waiver and that I wanted PBS it was activated...
Seems like it's 5 or 6 bucks,but don't quote me.
