Buyer Beware, Part 4

From Texas to Missouri to Maine, DirecTV is not having a very good year:

Debbie Seavey of Kennebunk says she signed a contract with [DirecTV], and that from day one, it hasn’t worked. However, the company won’t let her out of her contract.

The company’s response?

A [DirecTV] customer service representative says that once you sign a contract, you will have to pay, whether you are satisfied with your service or not.

Suddenlink offers bundles of TV, Internet, and phone services with no contract required.
