The Most Ultimate Satellite TV Package Ever!


I recently ditched Comcast as my cable TV provider and adopted Direct TV instead. It's actually an ironic situation, too. I live right next door to a Comcast corporate center, and the new dish is pointing in the Comcast's building general direction. Well, I think it is quite humorous anyway.

Anywho, Direct TV is rolling out a new package that would attract anyone with their service. The new package is called TITANIUM™, and includes every channel, every movie, every ppv, every sporting event, every adult channel...you get the idea. You get it all, as well as up to 10 high def DVR receivers for all of those TV's in your house, and a 24/7 concierge service! And you can have this all, for the low low, once a year cost of just $7,500 (USD). Yeah...I guess that's kind of the catch. It will cost you an arm and a leg. Hell, you could get a car for that amount of cash! But can you watch the tour de france in high def while ordering plane tickets for a trip to vegas at the same time in some lousy car? They do not give the details of the concierge service yet, but flight tickets and event tickets are the basic function of the typical concierge. And the service will be available in just a few days, June 28, 2006. Can anyone spot me a few several thousand grand?

man, that stinks. We are in a contract with direct tv, but it's only a 2 year contract. And since you say you have had the service for 6 years, it sounds like they renewed the contract when you moved, double stinks and majorly sucks. I would definitely not pay that early cancellation fee and actually call them up and request to speak with a supervisor. Just say that no one told you that your contract was renewed when you moved. Did they tell you that it was going to be renewed? I know that, with cell phones, if you update you plan to a new plan or add features to it, the contract will get renewed for the time that the original contract was for, either 1 or 2 years.
