    Angry Big tv's multiple tv FRAUD !!!

    Big tv is cheating on its "multiple tv" discount scheme. According to this scheme you'll get 50% discount on the second connection in the same home.
    I picked one year pack for my first connection. After 3 or 4 months i decided to get my 2nd connection for another TV in my home. At the time of installation the cable guy told me that i'll be eligible for 50% discount on it, when i'll activate packs on both connections at the same time. Hence i started it on monthly packs without discount.

    When my first one year pack got expired on 9 october 2009, i called up cc to activate one year Diamond pack on both connections.

    Now the shocking part! He told me that i am not eligible for discount on 2nd connection coz i have two separate dishes WTF He told that both STBs have to be connected to same dish in order to get discount. WTH :cursing: so whats my fault ???

    They just dont want to give discount..thats it....morons..:angry:

    Well, I think the clause is that you are eligible for dsiscount only if you connect the 2nd TV also to the same dish.

    Why did you have two dishes in the first place?

    Even I have two dishes (for DishTV) at home. I got two dishes because the dual LNB module was not available. But in my case, I took the two connections on the same day.

    In your case, you should make a complaint to the consumer forum. BigTV cannot deny you the discount because no where it is stated that you must have one dish or multiple dishes. The only condition is that the two connections must be at the same address.

    If BIGTV does not comply, my suggestion is to switch the another provider. Yes. There will be an initial setup cost but in the longer run, the discount that you get from 2nd connection will override the initial setup cost in two years at most.

    First of all you might have to told the cc while you book for your multiple connection, that it is multiple connection. Then only you can claim the second connection's discount. In your case it might not been done.

    They told themselves that first one is PARENT connection and second is CHILD. Moreover both connections are under same name and address. I spent my whole day in arguing with them. I talked to almost six different arsholes. They have frozen on just one thing that i have "two dishes". wtf
