I will go to clear TV when done with Direct as many of my friends are doing. I am tired of violence and infomercials.

I really enjoyed having DirecTV. Thus far, I have been with them for more than 3 1/2 yrs and never had any problems. The only issue I ever had was when there is a power outage or a thunderstorm that's when the Satellite fails and oftentimes takes awhile for the TV signal to restart.

3 stars

Direct TV is very costly.Every time it rains we cross our fingers that the signal won't go out but that doesn't work. You lose that time when watching a movie,sports,and anything that was recording.I can't take it anymore so when this contract done so am I.One other thing we were only able to record 2 channels at a time and that includes viewing one of those channels and there's more.

Cuts out in the rain, bad install?

Sep 02, 2013 by Rainy in Seattle

So far I really like Directv *when it works* but I am having a rough time when it cuts out during rain. I wonder if I have a problem with my installation b/c my friends do not have this much issue?

Not good in bad weather

It's not good in bad weather - and it doesn't even have to be storming - just heavy clouds or rain. Sometimes the picture is "tiled" even when the weather is clear!

Loving it for football

My wife got me DirecTV for my birthday. It was perfect timing for football season and now I can follow my team all the way-hopefully-to the SuperBowl. Go RAMS!

Installation was good and so far the picture has been picture perfect on our flatscreen TVs. She watches shows in her bedroom while I watch in the mancave. Perfection at its finest. Thank you DirecTV!

we recently got stationed at a base in CO and shortly after we signed up for directv. we are loving it because they have all our shows no problem and i can afford it with a recent pay increase plus they have military discounts available. thanks.

Genie makes everything better

Jul 01, 2013 by Ben

I was never much on Directv until I heard about the whole home genie. It looked like exactly what I wanted so I switched from cable (which sucked) to Directv (which turned out not to suck).

Of course it is darn expensive but it is really worth it as my partner and I watch a huge amount of TV. The Genie and whole home DVR access is the best I ever tried and it really makes the whole package and Directv worthwhile.

I recommend it and rate it four stars. I just wish they would cut the price because Netflix and stuff are pretty cheap compared to my Directv package.

Too expensive for my taste

May 07, 2013 by Jerico E.

I finally canceled my Directv service because frankly it is way too expensive! I cannot justify spending so much money every month when almost all of the shows/content are available online for free or minimal cost. Netflix and Amazon Prime video here I come! I wish Directv offered a really cheap package or where you just just add in ONLY the channels you want, rather than having to pay oodles of money for a bunch of stuff I never watch.

2.6 5.0 50 50 So much for being a loyal customer for 18 years!!!!! I DIDN'T LEAVE YOU, YOU LEFT ME!!!!! After months of misinformation. poor treatment price hikes for 60 channels of infomerial DIRECTV Satellite TV
