Who is that girl in the latest DirecTv commercial where she is talking about buying a new HD flat screen but needs an HD box from DirecTv? She is very easy on the eyes and the set is very clean and sharp. I like it. If someone already brought this commercial up in a Thread I apologize. If not I can't believe no one is talking about it.

No one cares about the commercial. That's why we have a DVR so we don't have to watch the dumb commercials.

Yeah she's fairly attractive, probably not hot enough to dedicate a thread to her though. :D

IMHO... the commercial caters to a very small crowd though... i think most people realize that you need an HD source to watch HD... not just an HDTV... but like i said... as least she's cute... :sure:

Saw a study yesterday that said 50% of the people that have purchased HD TVs don't have an HD source...so the ad may really be aimed at a potentially large audience.

I actually just had an argument with my father-in-law about this the other day. He was telling me he was looking into buying an HDTV so he could have HD. Right now he has E* with an 18" dish so I started telling him he would need to switch out his equipment to get HD and he quickly disagreed. I think many people think once they buy an HDTV they're set. Also many people are confused about the digital switchover and think they have to have an HDTV or their TV's will go dark next January..:lol:

I know what you mean, I had a debate with a coworker who said she had D* and got HD with the round dish. I informed her that she did not, and she adamently disagreed, siting that on her local FOX and CBS when watching football it said "In HD"......I tried telling her that simply meant that it was available on their digital channel, but soon realized it was a dead point:lol: For those who "think" they are looking at HD, when they are not, would pass out when they actually saw HD:D

Very Very nice. However, she's no Tanya Memme from the D* help channel from a few years ago.

Yes, the commercial was in HD. Decent commercial, even if the "room" was a little unbelievable. The chick was semi-hot...don't know her name, though. I guess we can just call her "Semi-hot Chick in the New DirecTV HD commercial".
