I don't post a lot here, am not a lawyer, did not sleep at HI Express last night, but I have been with DTV since 1994 and do somewhat support what they are doing for us. It seems to me that the introduction of the Epix issue into these negotiations could possibly be considered a violation of Antitrust Laws. Part of the Antitrust Laws deal with the illegal act of 'Tying'. Maybe someone with a legal background could weigh in on this. I can't post a URL because I don't have 5 posts here, but one could use the Google and search for ANTITRUST + TYING to learn more if interested.
