I'm a senior citizen who has loved DirecTV for 9 years - until AT&T took over in 2015 and my monthly bills rapidly escalated by close to 40 percent. Discounts routinely applied to my account by DirecTV are not even acknowledged by AT&T.
Every where I turn, from check out at CVS to my local newspaper and even their Web site, I see AT&T and DirecTV offering new customers the same services I received for less than half of my monthly charges.
It is infuriating that the government allowed this evil giant to take over and destroy DirecTV, leaving consumers to choose between a tiny oligarchy of unscrupulous mega-corporations who spend tens (hundreds?) of millions entrapping people via short-term promotional pricing. It's truly disgusting and should be illegal.
Reason of review: Pricing issue.
