DirecTV Wants To Sell You A Home Security System
 
DirecTV’s terrestrial-cable competitors like Comcast and Time Warner offer home security systems, a logical extension of a business that’s already running wires through and piping information back and forth from customers’ homes. DirecTV decided to get a piece of that very profitable action, and bought an existing alarm company, LifeShield Home Security.
 
The acquisition makes sense for reasons other than what their competitors are currently doing. They already have a nationwide network of installers and technicians, along with an existing customer base to market home security services to. Even as more Americans begin to realize they might not really need pay TV, no one is downloading alarm services for free over BitTorrent. (Yet.)
 
LifeShield currently has at least 20,000 customers nationwide.

No sale, thanks. 

 

If there is anything (other than whole life life insurance) more worthless than an alarm system, I don't know what it might be.

Because you have it coming up here as a thread. If its just a headline that redirects you to original post then this should be locked.
It must be 2 threads otherwise it wouldn't have came up in the New Post areas!

I agree  - posts should be locked here.

 

Unfortunately (at least for now) there is no 'clean' way to get a headline to the home page other than by creating a thread here.  Locking these threads is a good solution.  I
