It went very well.
He arrived when he said he would.
He diagnosed the problem, and decided that it was the router, and replaced it.
Repair service was covered as part of my subscription, so long as it was their equipment.
(I'm not certain of the date of service.

Nature of complaint: A sales presentation with unethical sales practices

Problem description:
I feel I was scammed by this company and that the public should be aware. The company representative caught me at a booth at the Indiana State Fair. We wanted to upgrade our equipment. He told us we could pay the show special price of $50 instead of the regular price of $150, so we decided to do it. Upon returning home and checking my DirecTV account, I saw I was eligible for FREE upgrade, free installation and shipping at no cost. The representative said he didn't know anything about that and all he knew was he had to collect $50. I should add he was insistent on cash -- no credit card, no check and no billing to the account. I asked to explain the fee to me and he referred me to his office manager IN ARIZONA! I should also mention that this booth was totally under the DirecTV brand. There was no indication they did not work for DirecTV.

His office manager also could not explain the fee. I asked her if I ordered it online and had no fee, why do I pay $50 at a show. I also told her I felt I was being scammed, would like to cancel that order and have my money returned. At that point, she said she would have to talk to her supervisor and call me back. She did not call me back, so I called her the next day and got her voice mail and asked her to please return my call. After no response, I sent an email to the general mailbox detailing my complaint and asking for a refund. At that point, the owner replied via email saying the fee was non refundable and that was on the contract I had signed, therefore no refund. I told her, yes, it was on the contract, but the rep told me the fee was mandatory for the upgrade, not an application fee retaining a third party company. And that what he should have said was "you are eligible for a free upgrade, but we will handle it with DirecTV for you for a fee of $50." At that point I would have known this was a third-party vendor (for there was absolutely no way to know that otherwise) and refused the offer.

My complaint is this: this company represented itself as DirecTV, under DirecTV's umbrella, with DirecTV shirts, equipment, etc. there was never any indication I was retaining or working with a third party. As far as I was concerned, I was dealing with DirecTV. Since my upgrade was FREE from DirecTV, this company collected an illegal fee from me; therefore their contract was illegal and they should refund my money. In the future, they should explain clearly and up front, that they are not DirecTV, but a third party performing a service which could easily be done online by the consumer.

arrived precisely @ 9AM. The project was discussed & explained in detail. He then went up onto my roof with a signal meter and test antenna to determine what signals were available. He found 42 channels between Boston and

. He then gave me a written estimate which fit perfectly with my budget. He took great care of my home and gardens and, upon completing the antenna installation, he even sprayed the galvanized tripod with gray Rustoleum!

He got there when I requested (7:30 am) and got right to work.. Had it fixed in less than 2 hours and he also fixed my tv satellite connections (which I didn't know was problematic). Everything is working great now.
I have used Dish Net for over 15 years now and have always had good results with them and their techs.

Was told on the phone I would have Internet service....and then after installing TV services, I found out they do not have Internet services in my area. Also, when it would sprinkle rain, there would be no service.

The appt was set up, they called to verify time the day before. The installer arrived on time, told me about how long it would take, told me the steps he would take. . We discussed where the disk would be located. We discussed where I wanted the cable to come through through the wall or the floor, where I wanted my computer locainstallation went smoothly. No surprises. I am very pleased.

It was an extremely cold day, installer didn't seem to mind working in that type of weather, seemed efficient and did the work as quickly as possible.
In the process he knocked down an antique pottery bird bottle, broke that, didn't mention it. also when project completed he came to us with paperwork, indicated it was for his rating in order to be paid, did not even mention the fact that we were obligating ourselves to a two year contract @ $80 plus dollars! Had I known this prior we would have gone with another company

Very well overall. However they don't inform you that if you do not have a Cat5 outlet they do not install so they drill a hole in your floor. This makes the installation look unprofessional. Waiting to see if this new gateway holds up. We also have

This is the 3rd time we have used
Columbia Satellite Tv Providers Provider Name Locked
. He is always polite, answers our questions, and works efficiently. This move caused a challenge for him because the house is 3 stories and very high off the ground.

found a way to get a temporary dish set up for us until we can get some trees cleared up. He spent a few hours going on a "treasure hunt" to find the previous cabling and getting cabling into the 4 rooms we want to set up with the Dish system. He is very committed to serving the customer and will do what it takes to get you hooked up. He will have to make a second trip out once we get the trees cut and was fine with setting us up with a temp set up until then. He also found a way to put the dish in an easy accessible location.
