Early Termination Fee - DirecTV

Hello, I recently lost my job and financially cannot afford to pay the 2 $165.00 Early Termination fees charged to my closed account. Is there a way someone can help me? I called today but the person told me it's a legitimate fee. I realize it's a legitimate fee despite me checking with AT&T prior to closing my account but was misinformed by an AT&T representative. I just wish someone from AT&T can understand and help me with this as I can't afford to pay these 2 fees.
