    Direct Tv hustle

    I've already complained on this forum about direct tv swindling me out of FSN Pittsburgh
    unless I put up the dough for the sports pack, but here's a new one...

    I finally go on-line to order the Sports Pack today in order to receive FSN Pittsburgh for
    the rest of the hockey season. I click the button to add the "premium package" and
    get a message that says I can't make any changes to my account unless I make a change
    to my outdated package. (insert joke here)

    In other words, Direct Tv said, "Jiga, we already know that you'll be paying an extra $12.99
    a month for the Sports Pack, but before you do that, you're going to have to pay a little
    more and upgrade. Or you can select the family package, but we know you're not going
    to downgrade. Go ahead now, bend over. Right there. Oh yes, that feels good, doesn't it?"

    What an effing scam. I'm thinking about unleashing hell on Direct Tv for the remainder of
    December and probably the first couple of days in January.

    Well, I went home yesterday, called Direct Tv, talked to the automated system, and it
    had no problem with me ordering the Sports Pack.

    Funny how the web site tells me that it's impossible because of my outdated package,
    but I had no problem when I called.

    All well, I know you were all concerned .

    The automated system is a computer, likely wired into the internet, and therefore able to access postings on PlanetSteelers.com. It obviously saw your threat to unleash hell and gave in.

    When I had DirecTV, I had so many problems with my service that I felt like giving their customer service folks the Cartman treatment with my DirecTV satellite dish.
