I know everyone will disagree with this but if News Corp never bought Directv we would have never had the HR Platform for our dvr's and we would probably always have been on Tivo or something else. Yes I know the HR platform is not from NDS but the whole design and interface reflects the R15 originally with the active and red button services. So I know a lot of people like the HR platform over Tivo but if News Corp was never involved with Directv then things would be very different now with our services. So you should be thankful to News Corp somewhat.
While I'm not sure News Corp was specifically part of the HR decision making, I think your point is still sound overall.
