DIRECTV TAKING A STANCE IN NFL DRAMA……..

$300 A YEAR NFL PACKAGE

9-27-2017


Satellite service DirecTV is refunding NFL Sunday Ticket subscriptions for customers offended by the weekend’s national anthem protests.

Normally the company does not give refunds for the specialty package after the season starts, but it apparently changed course after getting calls from hordes of customers upset over the players and coaches who knelt for the anthem during Sunday and Monday games, one former subscriber said.

“I want to spend my money somewhere where it’s gonna be appreciated,” former subscriber Paul Alvarado of Keller, Texas, told The Post. “I’m paying for a product that should not include that kind of anti-American sentiment.”

Keller contacted DirecTV Tuesday to cancel his roughly $300-per-year plan when they surprised him by telling him he would get all the money back as a statement credit. The customer service rep he talked to said he had already received five calls to cancel on Tuesday alone, Alvarado said.

DirecTV did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Alvarado said the policy change happened overnight.

“A buddy of mine cancelled yesterday or the day before and he has to eat the money,” he said.
