Why am I being charged a TV fee?


As technology becomes more advanced, monthly fees for receivers and Genie Minis allow us to provide the latest equipment with minimal upfront cost to the customer. The upgrade fees allow us to keep our monthly fees low. Many leased items require an upfront payment as well as monthly fees. Similar to leasing a car, a customer pays an amount upfront, and that amount allows the customer and the company to keep the monthly fee low.

The amount charged depends on when you signed up for your DIRECTV Service®.View more details
