    No body ignored it, I wanted to hear it , and no one provided it.

    Financial reports are also on paper, and I looked throught the entire 2011 reports and saw no mention of this.

    Just point it out, and thats that!

    I just find it hard to believe that according to some here that EPIX would be a finacial drain on Directv subscribers, but yet non of the others like Seasonal Sports packs, and RSN contracts, THE CURRENT, Premiums cause no current inflation of our prices .

    Sounds dumb right?

    So all publicly traded companies have to make every bit of their businesses known? C'mon, now you sound silly...

    I will do the math (again) for you as I did earlier in this thread.

    - $1 billion dollars D* pays per year for NFLST
    - Approximately 3 million NFLST subscribers

    After some simple division, you get $333 cost per subscriber. Magic, ain't it?

    Only one you are right about (other than Epix) is RSN contracts.

    What is "THE CURRRT"?

    Fine...I'll even take 1 million off that number.

    2 million subs to NFLST...cost per subscriber is $500. The 1-50 FCO restaurant example I provided earlier is now +$945 above cost.

    The commercial customers more than make up and cover the cost.

    The only people who know that info are the D* execs. And as it was pointed out to you earlier, CEO Mike White has said on financial calls that NFLST pays for itself.

    Yep and Charlie Ergen also said the economy is bad when they had 3 quarters in a row subscriber losses, While Directv ,att,verizon,comcast,time warner all had big subscriber increases.

    So untill I hear it or see that in writing I'm not convinced.

    Could you give me a clue on what one?

    Since year end results are not untill next week, I'm guessing 2011 results?

    Well Directv Premium movie channels have the Highest buy rate per subscriber in 3 years.
