The automated phone system is a great way to manage your account. It's convenient, easy to use, and it allows you to extend the payment deadline to prevent a service interruption (as long as the date is more than 24 hours away). just call 1-800-531-5000.
We can process an extension for you, but please note that once this extension is processed, we will not be able to process another extension for you over the phone for another 6 months.
Hi Roger. If I understand, you would like to make payment arrangements on your billing. Directv will make a 1x extension on your payment due, up to 14 day, however, if your payment is due within 24 hours, we will not be able to extend your cutoff date before service is interrupted. To keep your service from being interruped you will have to pay all past due funds before 12:01 am.
