Following the Comcast/Time Warner deal and the impending rage from me that followed it (how in the world can the US government say this is in the best interest of the consumer?), I decided to switch to Directv. I will note, this required me to move apartments, which I was planning to do anyway, but I now made satelitte tv a requirement for my new spot.

While speaking with the DTV sales agent, who was incredibly helpful, I asked if they had seen an uptick in business following the Comcast deal. He said they are always getting people swapping from cable, but business has been BOOMING with people upset about the Comcast deal, choosing to switch to DTV. Thus, I believe subscriber growth will benefit tremendously from this (may be worth having a look at Dish Network, too), and the company will continue to outperform.

Think of it this way: will the Comcast/Time Warner deal influence many (any) customers to proactively switch to Comcast? Not likely.

And if that doesn't sell you, then there's always this: Warren Buffet.

Not sure if the stock outperform, I work at this company and know it, that is why I invested on it on my 401k plan. The management on the company is very good. I have seen the price going up and down, but when I started it was at 48, today it's at 64.41....I'm in it for thelong run....

they have the NFL locked up as far as Television is concerned and that might be worth more than DTV.

I like the strong owner earnings growth in addition to excellent management returns on FCF and a reasonable price tag. They are building a lasting brand and the commercials are funny.

DirecTV has done an impressive amount of growth in terms of subscribers but I think the recent (albeit temporary) loss of Viacom channels underscores the bigger problem, the cost of content. Millenials are far less likely to pay for cable/satellite than any previous generation. I believe we will see a shift to a simpler pay per view system. People will end up paying for the content they actually want instead of getting bundled with hundreds of channels the majority of which people don't even scroll through. When advertisers finally recognize that they can dissect customer categories by content, and thus do more direct marketing, the cost of episode/content rentals will plummet and younger people will ditch their boxes in droves.

I don't see how it can lose ViaCOM and remain viaBLE. Folks will flee to the exits and the stock will take a hit.

I don't think that anybody who is proactive about investing can consciously green thumb apple and dtv at the same time. If they believe Apple is going to change the game with their iTV, then they should obviously red thumb DTV. And even past that, satellite tv? Really? I would honestly love for somebody to respond to my comment telling me "I can see myself still watching satellite tv ten years from now."

Internet TV is the wave of the future. Satelitte (and cable) TV is too expensive and rigid in the new telecommunications environment. Direct TV may have a decent run for the next year or two, but the writing is on the wall.

Directv has recently moved into Latin America, which will bring in a lot of growth. They are also a little undervalued. PEG at 0.89. I have put real money on this stock for the long term, 10+ years or more. I would never go into this for the short term. Employee rumors state that business will be booming at the end of this month/beginning of next month. Changes for the better are happening at Directv. They are trying to expand their commercial side of business. The CEO recently stated that they will be putting more effort into retaining existing customers. New installations take up a lot of money and I know that many customers are flip- flopping between providers. Directv is coming up with a lot of new ways to cut costs, and they are expanding. So many changes for the better. This new CEO seems to know what he is doing. I think this will be a great stock to have for the long term.

for small towns where large cable companies are inefficient, direct tv is a good alternative
