Sneaky, Sneaky, DirecTV

Well, you thought you could fool me, eh?

Thanks for the advance warning on my statement…

06/28 7/27 NFL Sunday Ticket 2006 Season Renewal Notice: No Payment Due
07/28 8/27 NFL Sunday Ticket 2006 Season Renewal Notice: No Payment Due

In addition to just assuming I would want to renew my NFL Sunday Ticket package — which I suspected, but wouldn’t have known for sure if I didn’t call you up — thank you for telling me, when I said that I didn’t want to renew, that “Okay, since your billing cycle starts on the 28th, you wouldn’t begin to get charged.”

So let me get this straight… I got my bill today, got my two “alert notices” for separate months on one bill and if I hadn’t called today, I woulda started getting charged since the billing would begin tomorrow?

Not very nice, DirecTV. I guess it’s a shame, then, that I didn’t renew, eh?
