Hey guys, I have had direct tv for over 2 years now... and frankly i am sick of constant price increases.... looking at my statments, about every 5 months my bill has gone up 5 bucks......

Those of you who have had both.... tell me which one you think is better and why....

I am tempted to change to dish because i could cut my bill in half.
My package now is 112.00
The comparable package with dish is 60.00 after the 12 month promo period is over....

Dish vs Direct
I had direct for 15 years and like you said it was a constant spiral upwards However I am now with Dish and over the course of one year the rate went from the $29.00 intro to $95.00 and the programming is crap!

Sometimes when you contact the company and ask them for a better deal or your going to change to another company, they will give you a better rate. I did it with Time Warner cable, went from $115 to $85 with a phone call.

Dish does the same thing. It seems to be sporadic as evidence here shows.

In any case, all you have to do is call and makes threats of disconnect. They will usually agree to a lower rate.

I was with direct or 10years and when I bought my new house and moved they kept billing me for things I didnt have it was a fight for about 7 months. I told them to go jump in a lake and went to dish 3 years ago my bill has not changed and the programming is a lot better. Direct charged for hd dish is free on the hd. I wouldnt ever go back to direct if dish went out of business I would quit watching tv first.

you are right about Direct tv being a night mayor when it comes to them billing you, it took years before i could get them to stop trying to charge for stuff i didnt have. i would NEVER ! do buzz with them !
