Well, looks like as much as DirecTV claims to want us back (yes, I had DirecTV, so pay close attention with that in mind) they really don’t.  Installer comes out, we point to the DirecTV dish that is already on the roof.  He tells us they don’t do roofs.  Or ladders.  Tells us to call DirecTV back and ask for an independent contractor.  So we do.  He walks around the yard waving his signal detector and announces we can’t get signal on the ground (yes, that’s why the DISH WE HAVE is on the side of the house).  They don’t go on roofs, they need to put a pole in the yard.  In a historic district.  Uh, nope.
 
I get home and call DirecTV to discover the installer has cancelled my account.  Nuff said.  Still cancelling cable at the end of the month – interesting that, in this economy, Time Warner doesn’t care enough about their customers to give them the rate that service swappers get and DirecTV only wants to install on poles and apartment balconies.  Maybe it’s time to get some rabbit ears…
