We then received a bill for $72.94 for PPV movies ordered on 7/7/09, 7/10/09, and 8/23/09. When I called, I was told that these were "adult movies that were ordered through the remote, and since we didn't have a phone or internet connection to our DVR, there was no way to know about them until they got the card out of the returned receiver". I was also told that once we hit our "limit" or once the receiver tried to contact DirectTV and was unable to, we would have been unable to continue to order through the receiver. Apparently, they receiver tries to communicate once a month....oddly, though the charges above span a period of well over 31 days, so I don't buy any of their story.
I think it's a scam; I don't even know if it's legal to charge for something that supposedly occurred over 2 years ago. And it seems that all these claims are for "adult movies".....looks to us like they're trying to shame people into paying something that they shouldn't be responsible for.
I was told that the only way to dispute these charges is to write a letter to the billing dispute dept., which I'll be doing next.
