~feeling used's review of DirecTV customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's DirecTV customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~feeling used: Baited and switched. Tried to add one HD receiver. Told there would be no increase to my bill,no contract. The *rd party confirmation wanted me to agree to numerous increases & * yr contract. Express customer support (***)***-**** was slightly more pleasant, but told me the first person was wrong - I said it is your company, your training and unacceptable to bait and switch. He didn't budge-* yr contract & monthly fee for hd. Said he would give me $** off per month-we'll see if that shows up. Going to Dish Network or may just disconnect and go internet. Oh and when I told Dish Network I had a Roku, they hung up. Guess Roku has something going & no monthly fee. just learning how Roku works.

~feeling used: For that I would say three out of five.
