Beware of Hidden Costs
Reviewed in the United States on February 28, 2020
I recently purchased a Winegard G3 portable dish and a Direct TV receiver from Winegard (which is a rental unit from Direct TV. If I cancel my supcription, I need to return it or be charged an additional $400. Direct TV uses Winegard as their reciever distributor). Winegard charged me $199. for the unit. At time of activation, Direct TV charged me an additional $199 to activate. No where in any of the information of receiver from Winegard or from Direct TV when I inquired how to obtain a receiver on my current Direct tv account, was it stated that receiver and set up would cost a total of $398. Additionally, Direct TV held me to a new 24 month contract with penalty for early cancel. Very poor way to treat a long term customer. Aslo worth noting, Direct TV does not broadcast HD through their RV systems, however, Dish does.
