    Had a good quarter, final results in February.
    100,000 net adds in US

    Latin America also exceeded expectations.

    "Not a CEO in the US who doesn't think their stock is undervalued" and DIRECTV is definitely buying stock.

    Hope to reduce call volume by 20M each year (currently 125M/yr.) @$4-5 per.

    Will continue to increase offers to existing customers.

    Including a new box every two years for PP customers.

    Downplays any talk of merging. Still major portions of country with minimal competition.

    In about 20% of America, RSN costs are out of control. Currently have a surcharge of $2 or so for some new customers.

    Will continue to work on controlling costs or carefully, selectively passing costs on. (Hard to have national pricing with certain RSNs trying to ask for lots of money.)

    Still some large areas that have large market share upside potential in Latin America. Had some great successes in some countries, expects to extend that to rest of Pan-Americana (South American less Brazil.)

    Goals are to double subs and double income in 5 years. So far on track at this point. (Plan is much of growth via Pan-Americana.

    Brazil is very competitve and always has been. DIRECTV is working hard to beat the competition, using similar means as the US.
