Advertisements My husband called 2 months ago to place a service call and made some deal with Direct TV. I need to call them and see what he actually agreed to. Anyway, they charged us $30 for a service call and I think he agreed to adding the protection plan for a year. So they've been charging us the $6.00 (I think) for that each month. Does anyone know how much a service call usually costs? Does that sound like a good or bad deal?
