for those of you who have direct tv, be very wary of paying by debit/credit card. the second you pay for it by that method you automatically agree to allow them to debit your account for any money owed to them no matter what. we had ours turned off because we lost our jobs temporarily and in an effort to not get lost in debt to them had it shut down. they debit our account and caused it to overdraw by a huge amount because they charged us all we owed them,plus the length of the contract and early shutoff fees. we were able to get our bank to get our money back but it is in the fine print of the contract if you can find it on their webpage. beware!!
