DirecTV and Me

DirecTVI am a fan of DirecTV. When a service that I’m paying for actually stands against pressure from one of their suppliers that would ultimately result in an increase in my costs, I applaud the actions.

The recent actions by Viacom, aimed at extorting billions from DirecTV customers was countered by a less than dramatic exodus of customers from DirecTV to other providers. I have little doubt they expected their MTV and other trash viewers to pile complaints on the doorstep of DirecTV and it was obviously not effective enough to get the results they wanted.

So, to Viacom, you can kiss the collective rear ends of DirecTV customers. I am certainly not under the illusion that DirecTV was worried about my needs, but they were clearly aware that they would lose customers if they caved to the demands of a greedy supplier.
