DirecTV confirmed it's restructuring the operations of its broadcast centers in Castle Rock, Colo., and Los Angeles as part of an overall initiative to reduce costs, improve efficiencies within the company, and move toward more specialized, focused operations at the two centers.

The move will result in a reduction in staff at the Castle Rock center, DirecTV spokesperson Bob Marsocci said. "Castle Rock management is discussing the restructuring with employees and those employees whose positions are being eliminated will be notified on Saturday," he said.

There are about 150 employees at Castle Rock, and the staff reduction will affect less than half of those employees, Marsocci said.

Castle Rock is DirecTV's original broadcast center, and it will remain a vital part of the DirecTV broadcast service. "With the restructuring, Castle Rock will play the primary role in the transmission of local channel services and the future expansion of those services - a key initiative for DirecTV and its ability to remain a competitive multichannel video service," he said.
