The Basics: How to Cancel Your Direct TV Account

 

Find you’re spending too much on TV — Cable, Netflix, DirecTV — and want to downscale? Here are some helpful tips to canceling your subscription to DirecTV quickly:

To cancel DirecTV online:

  1. Gather your latest bill with all account information.
  2. Log into your account and navigate to the “My Account” page
  3. Click on “Manage My Plan” and select “Cancel your services” from the options.
  4. Be aware that there may be cancellation fees. If these are not clear, proceed by phone and speak with a customer service representative.  

 

To cancel DirecTV by phone:

  1. Call customer service at 1-800-531-5000 and follow the prompts to speak to a specialist who can assist you with canceling your service
  2. Be polite with the representative and explain why  you want to cancel your service. They may be able to recommend affordable alternatives to expensive cancellation fees which can range anywhere from $15 to $250 depending on the length of your contract.
  3. Determine when you will next be billed.

 

Returning your equipment:

  1. If you do have equipment such as receivers, remotes, routers, and video recording devices, disconnect them and take individual pictures of each device. Be sure to capture the serial numbers on each in the image.
  2. By mail: ask the representative if they can send you a return kit.
  3. If more convenient to return in person, ask the customer service representative or search online for the nearest return center (AT&T or a DirecTV location in your area).
  4. Ask the representative how long you have to return the equipment. Typically it’s 21 days.

Pro Tip: √ Although it’s possible to cancel online, it may be better to call a customer service representative about your account to clearly assess what the cancellation fees might  be. When calling, try to call during low volume times from 10am to 2pm to avoid long hold times of 10 minutes or more.
