Can you get free DIRECTV receiver upgrades?

DIRECTV viewers want to know if this is a thing. Some of them even ask us, “Will DIRECTV upgrade my receiver for free?” Our Signal Connect division is a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer, in case you were wondering. Whenever our reps get a call about free DIRECTV upgrades, they always give the same answer: We’ll have to check. Some might qualify while others don’t.

For those of you still watching standard definition (SD) programming, you’ll want to upgrade to high definition. And anyone who wants the best that DIRECTV has to offer will have to upgrade to 4K programming.
