Reasons 116 To 117 Of The 1,001 Reasons I Really, Really HATE DirecTV.
.by Anura Guruge
As of today, July 15, 2013, I have 706 days left on my DirecTV 2-year contract.
I plan to schedule the cancellation of it 2 weeks ahead of that date so that it happens exactly ON that day.
I will not have DirecTV for even a minute more than I am obligated to have it.
706 and only 886 more ‘why I really hate DirecTV‘ items to list.
I don’t want to run out of my hate points.
So I am going to throttle back to 1 or 2 a day, per the 1.25/day average I have to maintain, so that I can bitch and moan about DirecTV every day.
#116. This morning, sipping my coffee and waiting for 9 am so I can catch the headlines, I resumed watching a previously recorded Military Channel documentary on the Wilhelm Gustloff the German ship justly torpedoed by the Soviets in the later days of WW II. I had never heard of it. They reckon upwards of 5,000 Germans drowned. At 9am, I punched in ‘202’. This should have terminated the playback and selected 201. NOTHING. That same BLACK screen I got the day before appeared. #112. I have researched this. IT IS NOT GOOD! Means that the hard drive in my 22 day old Genie is dying! F*ing DirecTV. Since I refuse to pay them more for a protection plan I will have to pay them for a new one. I knew that this was their game. OF COURSE, the Genie can be programmed to fail after the first 30 days — so that suckers like me will have to pay for another one. DirecTV is, in my experience, the most unethical of U.S. companies. It is just out to rape and pillage its user base.
#117. A new record, within 24 hours for the f*ing MUTE button with the Genie f*ing Mini. Yesterday it was 3. #113. Today it was 4. So, 5 tomorrow. This is so f*ing stupid. I have checked. Common problem with the Genie. I have to find a lawyer. DirecTV should not be allowed to get away with this.
