Just got an e-mail from Directv that I'm going to need to get a new free access card by Aug 31,2020. Anyone know what this is all about??

directv sends out new updated cards so they can shut down the unauthorized access cards used by hackers to capture free channels happened when i had directv a few times.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

What he said! We've been with DirecTV for over twenty years and NEVER had a new card sent to us either!

How old and what type receiver are you using?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

My guess is it is a phishing attempt. There is probably a link to click on in the email that will download a virus on your computer. Don't do it!. Your safe option is to open your browser and contact Directtv yourself asking them about the email.

I received a new access card from DirecTV 25 years ago due to the hacking mentioned above, but not with continuous service since then. I would be very suspicious.

Rather than do nothing, call DirecTV and ask them if this is legit and ask them why? Chuck
