Justice Department seeking information on DirecTV, Dish pricing contracts.
A link or a source would be nice.
I found this - apparently it's part of a broader probe that isn't targeted specifically at DirecTV or Dish
DirecTV (DTV) and Dish Network Corp. (DISH) have received requests from the U.S. Justice Department about pricing contracts with television networks, part of a broader probe into whether pay-TV companies are squeezing out Internet-video rivals, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.
The Justice Department sent civil investigative demands, which are similar to subpoenas, to DirecTV and Dish, the two largest U.S. satellite-TV providers, said the people, who asked not to be named because they lacked authority to talk publicly about the situation.
After reading the article, the title of the thread is very misleading. The probe doesn't seem at all to indicate that the Justice Dept is coming for D* and E*.
I suspect someone at DOJ thinks AK47 is a receiver model.
As long as they force them to sell at the lowest prices to everyone instead of the highest......
That's my take, too.
Let's see how Swanni spins it! :nono:
Somehow I think the thread title is the answer to that :lol:
Swanni, no swanni ... doesn't matter.
I'd like to see regular audit of the content provider/distributor companies.
There are a lot of hidden movements - too much money changing hands.
I agree. I'd like to see the government on the short end of the stick.
Mod - pls move to Gen Sat discussion forum
Right, because the content producers and networks really want to give Netflix lower prices, but their hands are tied.
This mainly stemmed from a complaint by Netflix that Comcast has internet caps and then not counting against that cap for Xfinity On Demand when using an Xbox.
