How about when we are finally going to deal with the HBO onDemand and channel issues and other national HD D* doesn't have that Dish does?

I guess that would be a smart question and we can't pose those to the bean counters. That would cause a short-circuit!

Methinks D12 will be the answer to most of that. ;)

D12 won't really have an impact on HBO On Demand. I think it's just a $$ thing or who they have chosen to provide On Demand.

I believe Scott was responding to this portion of the other poster's question...

Yea OnDemand content will have nothing to do with D12 but might get discussed at the meeting since a lot more people are trying to use this service. Im pretty sure they will bring up additional HD channels.

Remember that this is just a financial conference call that goes over the numbers (profit, sub growth, stock, etc). It's not often that much else gets discussed and almost never do things like individual channels or something like HBO onDemand will be talked about.

What I would expect would probably be a question about Versus since that is a very public thing. But what are they going to say? What they already have in the press.

They will certainly mention D12 and the extra capacity it will bring, they have in all previous calls.

I'm just reminding people to temper their expectations, this is just a financial call and nothing more.

These numbers will be very interesting....to see how they compare with the first two this year...suspect new adds to be down...no surprises there.

Once in a rare case, we hear a peak at "new things" mentioned, but these are mostly financial overview calls.

I wonder if there will be any talk in regard to getting rid of the ridiculous ECF.

No there won't this is a financial call. The ECF has nothing to do with this.

Darn! I guess I'm going to be a holdout switcher for another quarter.

Results announced at http://dtv.client.sh...eleaseID=422185

"The DIRECTV Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:DTV) today reported that third quarter 2009 revenues increased 10% to $5.47 billion, operating profit before depreciation and amortization1 (OPBDA) increased 8% to $1.35 billion while operating profit increased 4% to $685 million compared to last year's third quarter. Third quarter net income attributable to The DIRECTV Group increased slightly to $366 million while diluted earnings per share increased 12% to $0.37 compared with the same period last year."

...

""In the United States, DIRECTV revenues increased 9% to $4.7 billion due to solid subscriber and ARPU growth. Continued robust demand for our service fueled an 8% increase in gross additions to 1.1 million subscribers and net additions of 136,000 primarily due to the addition of AT&T as a marketing partner and record demand for our industry-leading HD and DVR services." Hunter continued, "In fact, about two-thirds of new subscribers signed-up for HD and/or DVR services in the quarter representing the highest level in our history.'


It will be interesting to see how Dish does this quarter especially after all the anti DirecTV ad's they've been running durning it

Wanted to have a better balance of sub growth and cash flow. 3rd quarter results reflect this.

Record high advanced services uptake, two thirds of new subs get HD DVRs. HDDVR subs up 50% from last year.

Gross additions up 8% from prior year, strong from AT&T.
