DirecTV Cancellation Fee

Law firms are investigating complaints that DirecTV imposes a cancellation fee that is improperly or insufficiently disclosed to consumers. This fee is imposed regardless of the reason for cancellation (including for poor reception or service) and regardless of the amount of time of the subscription.

Some Excerpts from Unhappy DirecTV Customers

Watching TV
"When we signed-up we were told that it was a 12 month commitment, and when we called to cancel, they told us we had fulfilled our commitment. Now they are trying to stick us with a $100 early cancellation fee, despite what we were told on multiple occasions."

"They show me ordering service on 12/27/07 and canceling on 12/29/07. That's TWO days! They offer cancel within 72hrs (3 DAYS), and there is no early cancellation fee. We check our bank account on 01/08/08, and they have taken $301.23 out of our checking account for early cancellation fee! "

"Direct TV offered me $19.99/month and when one week later I got my bill it was jacked up to $50 per month. When I called to straighten it out I was told that there were no rebates at this time and they would not honor the $19.99. I said that I wanted to cancel. They would not let me speak to the cancellation dept and then assessed $157 in fees."
