    West Coast customers leaving DirecTV in droves! Pac 12 football

    Many people that I know are leaving DirecTV because they are die-hard college football fans and love Pac 12 football. But the East-coast mind-set that DirecTV has is costing them a fortune in LOST revenue. Yeah, free Genie set boxes are nice to keep customers, but not adding the Pac 12 channel is driving customers to Comcast and now ATT U-verse has also added the channel. DirecTV is falling the path and fate of Dish TV. They better wake up and smell the roses or it is doomsday.

    • You are wrong. DTV's executive vice president and president have both spoken at financial conferences during the last week and they indicate that is not the case. In fact they indicated that their total subscriber numbers are increasing per projections and they now have a total of over 37.5 million subscribers world wide.

      DTV has the superior customer base and most sports bars and hotels I have frequented use DTV over the other carriers due to their superior sports coverage.
      For the home viewer such as myself, they have a DVR that can record 5 shows at one time while my neighbors have COX and my mother has Time Warner and they can only record two shows at the same time.
      In addition the DTV box (one box) allows you to broadcast the signal to five televisions in one house off one box, while the cable carriers require one box for each tv. Bottom line DTV has superior technology.

    • wouldn't they have already left last year when DTV wouldn't carry the channel?
