    Default How to cancel a DirecTV contract

    I still have 1 year and 2 months left with my DirecTV contract. Is there any way to cancel it without paying the big fee for cancelling it?

    I'm not sure about how to cancel without paying the termination fee, but if you do have to pay it to cancel, do the math and see if it's cheaper to pay the fee and cancel versus paying the rest of your contract out. If you're wanting to cancel because it's expensive and you're not going to subscribe to another service, it makes sense but if you're cancelling to go to another cable or satellite provider, it's prob not a good choice IMHO.

    I just got my first bill and I couldn't do it without paying the cancellation fee. They told me if i would have responded 14 days prior to installation they may have worked with me

    I don't trust some of their phone reps though. They'll tell you anything.

    EDIT: DirecTV's reps are almost as bad as XM Sirius reps.

    I don't think there is a way out of the early termination fee unless DirecTV screws up really bad. My guess is that your 12 month discount is about to expire, and your price is going to go up. My advice is to downgrade to the cheapest package DirecTV offers when the first "discounted" year is up, then you should do the math and see when is a good time to cancel.

    I don't think they have anything greater than 2 year contracts. If you're over 2 years I doubt you're under contract unless you reupped at some point to get new services. But, if you did, you're stuck. Otherwise just call them up and tell them that you want to cancel.
