MediaPost Publications DirecTV: Higher Program Costs, Bigger Customer Bills 12/08/2010

"Broadcast networks have begun charging to carry their owned-and-operated stations. Plus, regional sports networks are also increasing carriage fees.

'It's important that the industry pass through the cost of this higher programming that we're seeing,' he (DirecTV CFO Patrick Doyle) said at a UBS investor conference."

Comment from William Hughes: "I no longer pay for the "privilege" of watching stale, commercial-infested programming. When I find out how much the cost increase is, I will apply that price "Hike" to the $105.00 I currently Budget for purchasing Movies and TV Shows on Home Video. More for me, none for them!"
