DirecTV Charged 102-Year-Old Woman An Early Termination Fee — After She Passed

Just a few days ago, a report was released that AT&T was thinking of getting rid of DirectTV because the sales were bringing down the company. AT&T bought DirecTV four years ago.

Which probably explains why DirectTV tried pulling this stunt.

Her name was Isabel Albright and she was 102 years old. She was alive before there was television to put things in perspective.  Her family installed DirectTV for her in her last years but when she passed away, the company tried to make the family pay an early termination fee.

Isabel Albright of San Lorenzo was among the oldest people in America – living through two world wars, 18 presidents and six moon landings.

She was born before television came into being.

Yet, ironically, she didn’t outlive her satellite TV contract. And that was a problem.

“Everything was fine until we went to disconnect and that’s when all the surprises happened,” said her son in law, John Manrique of Hayward.

Albright died last December at the remarkable age of 102. The family has been repairing the house for sale, sifting through boxes, closing up a life that spanned a whole century.

Which was why the last bill from DirecTV seemed so galling: Although she lived more than 100 years, Albright still received an “early termination fee” from DirecTV.

Or at least the family did – and they were stunned. [ABC7News]
