It was easier to go get MoviStar home internet with just a passport than it was to cancel DTV. Their constant harassment to resubscribe (even though I was leaving the country) with daily phone calls was unreal. They also take weeks to come pick up the equipment. I was leaving the country in 5 weeks when I had canceled. They never did come to pick up the dish and receivers. I left them with my management office. I couldn't give 2 craps either way, they had just my passport # and no SS#. Anyway consider yourself lucky not having to endure the pain of cancelling DTV.. yet.
I'm not dissatisfied with DirecTV (they are a bit expensive it must br said) but the only reason I was going to be cancelling with them was due to Claros package (which inclued phone & Internet)
But if Claros engineers are too lazy to install in for me, then I will stick with DirecTV & try to find someone that offers a phone/Internet package (I looked into Movistar but they are expensive & charge s/. 150 to install it)
So DirecTV stays & my search for a reasonable priced Internet provider continues :/
