"I am moving to the following address and would like local service changed:
xxx xxx xxx
xxxxx, NY xxxxx
Of course I used the actual address, but that was my entire email. Within the hour I was notified that they changed the address, I logged in and upgraded my Premier service with no locals to Premier with locals and within 5 minutes had all the NY stations.
Some updated news about the DTV "move"....I was talking to a person from the Syracuse area who told me about this move and they stated that the best thing to do was to find a campground in a zip code close to the city that you know would get local HD NYC stations. Then from there change the address by one (ex if the actual address is 168 Direct TV ave, change to 167 or 169). He stated that this worked like a charm. And then what he did was call up DTV during late hours to get there India call center, to switch his service address back to his billing address, and when he did so, he never lost the HD locals from the City. I found that hard to believe but he said it worked.
Now what i was thinking of doing was using a NYC address that I know is not a true address but the zip code is true, emailing DTV and then telling them to move me there...I would think this should work!?!?!?
