DirecTV Protection Plan - is it worth it?

Joe Davola 8,219 11,127 May 17, 2012 at 08:41 AM More Direct TV Deals
I normally don't believe in extended warranties and the like, but I'm seriously considering getting the DirecTV Protection Plan since one of my HD DVR receivers is getting pretty loud and I feel it might be grinding (to a halt) soon. Plus for $72/year, it covers all three of my DirecTV receivers, remotes, connection/switch, satellite antenna, wiring and dish antenna realignment.

Anyone think I should just pocket the $6/month and cross my fingers or any people that have it and like it or have any stories to share? Stories on topic of course. laugh out loud

FYI I have two HR24s and one R22 receiver if that helps.

Reps as always will be provided. nod

When you compare what you are already paying per year, $72 is not much on top of that.

We've replaced remote controls, receivers, but never any dishes or wiring under that plan.

I have it on my account and think it's worth it.
I've had to have a couple DVRs replaced which would have otherwise cost at least $100 each.
Plus, I'm not handy by any means so if there's ever an issue with the wiring or the dish there's no way I would be able to fix it on my own so it's good to know that would be covered.

anyone have any experience ordering from amazon. are they reputable?
We have it. I don'y really know how much we'e saved. But we have it. laugh out loud Funny thing is, hubby signed us up after our last move and he bought it. I never would have purchased it. laugh out loud And I know it's covered some stuff too.

That was probably no help at all but I just felt like posting in your thread. laugh out loud

I have it and think it is worth it. With the systems today, there are more things to go wrong. LNB's, SWM switches, splitters, DECA connectors, band stop filters, power inserters, Cinema connection adapters........

I recently just had an HR20 DVR switched out that had a hard drive acting up on it. Was free instead of $20 shipping. Have another HR20 DVR that is on the fritz lately and will call in to get that one replaced soon too.

Thanks, everyone!! I believe I repped you all before the rep cuffs got put on.

I guess I'll splurge for the $6, especially after reading Tonedeaf's experience.
