    DirecTV is a Ripoff

    I have had DirecTV since April. What a ripoff! The salesman told me I'd get the same programming that I had with Time Warner Cable but after the installation, I had to upgrade two levels to get almost what I had TWC. Now they have taken the Speed channel off and I was told I'd have to pay $12.99 to get the Fox Sports Channel to get the same content that I had with Speed. Then they charge for a service contract that I didn't have with TWC and they call it a good deal. I was also told by the salesman that there would hardly ever be any outages because DTV has so many satellites in the sky but it only takes a little rain to cause it to lose the signal. Constant pixleating (sp) is another daily problem. If we want to cancel, we have to pay $400 to do so. My wife wants to divorce me since it was my decision to change over to DTV from TWC. One of the worst decisions I have ever made. There have been many other problems that I did not discuss above. Have any of you out there had these problems? How can we take this company on? Do we need a class action? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    Chief
