~Anonymous'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.
~Anonymous: Beware of their cancellation process. I had the most unpleasant experience with the Customer Service call center at DirecTV this morning. *My * year agreement with DirecTV, which I had originally signed up for through Costco is expiring this month. *My plans are to go with another provider that better meets my needs. DirecTV forces a customer to call in to cancel service. No real problem though it is more of a hassle. When I told the representative of my plans, the conversation quickly became adversarial and hostile. The customer rep would not take NO for an answer and kept getting more and more belligerent. I was finally connected to a supervisor after ** minutes of back and forth who accepted my cancellation request. *DirecTV's interaction with customers is so unprofessional. How can they expect any customer to return to them if they get treated like ****.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting DirecTV. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a DirecTV problem?
~Anonymous: I'd give them a two out of five for ease of finding your way to help.
GetHuman: What about quality of communication. How would you rate that on a 1 to 5 scale?
~Anonymous: I'd give them a five out of five on communication.
GetHuman: And what about DirecTV's ability to quickly and effectively address your problem?
~Anonymous: For that I would say four out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other DirecTV customers?
~Anonymous: Call them early in the day or late. Don't forget any personal or account information you might need for DirecTV to know who you are.
GetHuman: Well there you have it. Some useful feedback and words from ~Anonymous taken from his DirecTV customer service problem that occurred on November 13th, 2017.
