Goodbye DirecTV ... it was nice knowing ya I'm a 10+ year subscriber to DirecTV and cancelled my service a couple weeks ago. I've never had any issues with the service ... was always happy with it and especially the exemplary customer service I always received if I ever had a problem, which was very rare.
The #1 reason I cancelled ... the rising prices. When I cancelled, I was receiving LESS programming and less channels than when I started with them back in 2003 even though I was paying a helluva lot more money. I had dropped services and tiers and premium channels and the protection plan until I had nothing else to drop to stay within my budget.
Even after buying an Amazon FireTV, purchasing Amazon Prime and subscribing to Netflix, I'm still saving over $1000.00 a year.
AND NO FUCKING COMMERCIALS.
I told them that when they get a la carte I *might* consider coming back ... maybe.

·AT&T DSL Service
I cancelled DirecTV today I cancelled DirecTV today, I subscribed since 1997. 17 years, the first 14, same price month after month, no cause for alarm, no reason to call them and argue about prices.
The last three years, with all the price increases every few months, having to call on the phone and argue incessantly. I got tired of it. So I dumped them today.
I signed up for Time Warner Cable with a cable card on a Tivo Premier I found at the swapmeet. I am saving about $30 a month since I already had TWC internet.
Much better than AT&T's lame DSL service I had to fight them over for 2 1/2 years.
Slow, unusable, and not even worth the $12.99 on their website if that. When they tried to raise the prices I told them to get out at the end of my street and start digging or hit the road. Slow, crappy, and raising the prices.
All these crooked companies are doing the same M.O. It's just ridiculous. Get some integrity.
