DIRECTV D2 Advantage™

This product serves the specific needs of apartments, condominiums and other rental communities. It also provides relief from the visual clutter of satellite dishes sprouting from each unit, since it uses a centralized distribution system that requires only one dish per building.
Aesthetic value aside, DIRECTV D2 Advantage™ offers many other benefits such as:

  • Easy and minimally invasive installation, taking less than two weeks in most cases
  • Tenants can bundle satellite TV with Internet service from such top providers AT&T and Verizon
  • Tenants can enjoy the same benefits as regular residential customers, including HD programming, the exclusive NFL SUNDAY TICKET package and the Genie HD DVR

For smaller properties, DIRECTV offers DIRECTV D2 ADVANTAGE™ LITE. It’s ideally suited for buildings with fewer than 20 units.

Billing procedures for DIRECTV D2 Advantage™

Property owners have two options for billing and service.
1. With the Direct-to-Home option, DIRECTV bills residents directly for programming packages, equipment and upgrades. Residents also have responsibility for all contracts and agreements.
2. By choosing the Bulk option, property owners pay for a base programming package at a reduced cost, which allows them to offer a lower group rate to their residents. Residents are responsible for upgrades, additional equipment, etc.

How to Temporarily Suspend Your DIRECTV Service

In life, change is one of the few things that you can count on to remain unchanged. For that reason, DIRECTV makes it easy for subscribers to suspend their service on a temporary basis.Pause DIRECTV

You may be planning a long vacation. You may be moving into a new home and find it necessary to put your DIRECTV service on hold until you’ve settled in. Maybe you’ve recently retired and become a “double nester” splitting time between two homes. No matter the circumstances, temporarily suspending your service involves a simple three-step process:

  1. Call DIRECTV at 1-800-531-5000.
  2. Say “suspend services” at the voice prompt to enter the automated system.
  3. Follow the instructions to complete your request.

What does it mean to suspend your DIRECTV service?

A temporary suspension is not the same thing as cancellation or disconnection. Your account will continue to exist, so you won’t need to repeat the process of creating an account as you did when you first became a DIRECTV customer.

Your service will simply be put on hold for the period of time you request and then resume once the period has ended.

Things you need to know before suspending your service

  • The minimum time period for putting your account on hold is 30 days.
  • Your account must have a zero balance (paid in full) before you can request a suspension.
  • Suspending your service will extend your existing service agreement by the amount of time the account is on hold. (Example: A customer with a service agreement that expires in April suspends the account for one month. The updated service agreement will end in May.)
  • Time on recurring or promotional credits will continue to run during the suspension. When the account is reinstated, any remaining credits will be applied.
  • Customers with one account can request a suspension no more than two times within a 12-month period. If you have two or more accounts, you can request a suspension up to four times within a 12-month period.
  • Customers cannot exceed 6 months of suspended service time within a 12-month period.
  • If you’re relocating and wish to move your DIRECTV service to your new home immediately, you can take advantage of the DIRECTV MOVERS DEAL™. Call 1-866-889-7872.
