I just called DirecTV and they gave me this deal too! The CSR had to transfer me to the CRG (Customer Retention Group) before they could give it to me though. I also made sure with him that my Tivo...I mean DirecTV DVR service was complimentary. He wasn't aware of that until it popped up on his screen, then he thanked me for informing him of this new policy
You definitely have to keep this level of service for an additional 6 months, because I went and looked at my account info on their web site and it says "1 Year Commitment", along with my package details. Still a good deal I think!!
I did notice something that I would like to clear up. When I looked at the Package Information for my three recievers, it now says this for each one:
"TOTAL CHOICE PREMIER W/LOCALS, 1 YEAR COMMITMENT, WE APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS, DIRECTV DVR (WAS TIVO) "
However, only one of my receivers is a DirecTivo unit, while the other two are basic receivers. Does this mean that I could have 3 DirecTivos for this same price, or would I get charged an additional $4.99 x 2 if I ditched the 2 regular receivers and replaced them with DirecTivos?
