This is just too good. I wandered into the DirecTV forum here tonight... and there's a nice new thread about DirecTV suing LifeTime in part for negotiating a better pricing deal with Dish than with DirecTV. So... Remember all the folk who said "Why doesn't DirecTV have problems?" and then when it was all over "I bet Charlie caved"... This would seem to indicate several particularly cool things to me. 1. Charlie did fight and win and get a better deal for himself with LifeTime. Way to go Charlie. 2. DirecTv chose not to fight LifeTime and ended up with a less attractive deal. Now has sour grapes wishing they had fought too and are suing to get what Dish got in the court of public opinion and negotiations. I wonder if the folk that were mad at Charlie & Dish for the stand they took will take note of this... and realize that Dish did something right and good here, and now DirecTV is even recognizing it and is suing LifeTime. I'm not always a rah-rah Charlie guy... I try to be fair... but you gotta admit this keeps looking better and better!
