    10,000 subs disconnected

    DirecTV revealed in a Securities and Exchange Commission
    filing that the damage caused by the onslaught of hurricanes
    impacting the Gulf Coast last year cost the company millions.

    Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and Rita forced DirecTV to record
    about $24 million in charges during 2005, the company said in
    the SEC filing. The charges covered work related to a higher
    level of service calls resulting from the storms, a reduction
    in revenues for subscriber service credits and an increase in
    bad debt expense.

    About 10,000 subscribers were disconnected in 2005 as a result
    of the hurricanes, the company said.
