The female model in the current D* TV ads must have been hit with a nasty stick. I hope the girl is working for few bucks or is some D*'s girl friend. I almost think the females in the NY Hopper ad are better looking.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I don't know what's more offensive, your attitude towards the model's looks or the fact that you just confused NY with Boston when it comes to the Hopper ads.

For the record, her name is Hannah Davis and she's dating Derek Jeter.

I appreciate you view, but I find the girl ugly as do many of my friends. I guessed she had some connection to get the job. D* obviously got the cheapest swimsuit model for their ad. Derek Jeter has bad taste if he is dating her. I'm sure he could do better. Boston or NY, the women in the Hopper ad are better looking.

Have a nice day!

If she fits within the definition of ugly, you and your friends need a reality check.
I have been a DirecTV subscriber since 2005.

A few channels I'd still like to see DirecTV add are:
CSPAN3, the PAC-12 Network(s), BBC World and more international news channels.

Women, like everything else in life are a matter of personal preference. "One man's candy can be another man's poison". On the other hand, I'd doubt very much you'd kick her out of bed if you woke up and found her laying naked next to you. :sure:

Hannah Davis has the usual physical attributes, and lovely they are,
but it's her eyes that grab and hold this admirer. I'm just waiting for
Jeter to move on. Thank you D* for bringing her to our attention :D

She is most definitely a fine looking young woman.
I agree that the eyes / facial expression in the ad is what gets your attention.
