FREE DIRECTV SYSTEM FOR UP TO 3 ROOMS
Get FREE DIRECTV equipment for up to 3 rooms, including satellite dishes (plural...read below), up to 3 standard receivers and NO-COST standard professional installation when you subscribe to one year of any TOTAL CHOICE programming package. Sounds good. But...
The fine print...
*For DIRECTV TOTAL CHOICE programming, premium packages, seasonal sports subscriptions, International and HD programming, you will need three (3) 90-centimeter DIRECTV Dishes. WHAT?? 3 Dishes??!!
To access DIRECTV HD programming, a DIRECTV HD Receiver and HD television equipment, is required. Offer for new residential customers who purchase any DIRECTV System from a participating retailer between 7/18/04 and 10/30/04, commit to and pay for
12 consecutive months of any TOTAL CHOICE programming package ($36.99/mo. or above), PLUS
subscribe to 2004 NFL SUNDAY TICKET ($249.00/retail offer price) AND
the TOTAL CHOICE PLUS package ($39.99/mo.), HBO, SHOWTIME UNLIMITED, Cinemax and SPORTS Pack within 30 days of equipment purchase.
OK...so i get 3 rooms for free... BUT
... I have to subscribe to all this programing for a year... AND
...they're going to put THREE 90-CENTIMETER DISHES
on my roof, making it look like a traffic control tower. AND
I have to keep my cable service because local channels are NOT INCLUDED
. Where do I sign??!!
