How To Stop Getting Spam Email And Mail From Dish, Spectrum, Comcast, DIRECTV, & More in 2020

Worried woman reading paperAt the beginning of every new year, phone calls and letters with offers and promotions trying to win you back as a cable, internet, or phone customer seems to spike. Luckily, there are ways to make these advertisements and promotional offers stop.

Do Not Call Registry

First things first. Put your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. This is a free and easy step that will cut down on telemarketing calls.

DirecTV

If you’re an AT&T customer, you can easily register for the company’s Do Not Call List. In order to not receive promotions or other sales calls, chat with an agent online through the link above, or call 800.331.0500 (611 from your AT&T wireless phone) and ask to have your number removed from the list.

Comcast

Comcast has a dedicated page on their website for a Request to Opt Out. Here, you can fill in your phone number to quickly be added to the list. Once you’re on the list, you’ll stop receiving sales calls, solicitations at your door, and/or promotional mail from Comcast.

Dish

You’ll need to contact a Dish representative to remove your information from their contact list. Go to Dish’s Contact Us page to start. Click on CHAT. When you’re connected with a representative, let them know that you’d like to stop receiving mail from the company. There’s a chance they’ll tell you that they can’t help you. In that case, ask for a supervisor and give them the same request.

Spectrum

Spectrum has a self-explanatory Request to Remove Phone Number form. Fill in your information to stop receiving phone calls and/or text messages from the company.

Cox

If you’re receiving advertising from Cox, take a look at their support page for Opting Out of Location Based Advertising. These ads are sent based on zip code. You can opt out by following the steps outlined on the website, which include logging into your account and ticking a box.
