You do not understand sports programming and value of sports programming, so you do not understand why Malone and Buffet own billions of dollars each in DTV for investment purposes. Netflix will never be able to offer the most valuable entertainment which is sports.
Ive been doing exactly what hahn has stated. That is what caused me to look at this stock today. I used to be a direct tv customer but I'm no longer due to cheaper alternatives and direct tv raising rates to keep up with rev targets.
Microsoft just landed a deal with NFL to be able to stream 2013 season if you buy special madden 25 for $100. That was the only way I would stick with direct tv but now they lost that edge too. DTV better get into the internet tv buisness or sell the company because at this rate dtv will be bk in 5 years.
