Convergence Consulting Group published a report saying that digital cable will continue to increase its subscriber lead over satellite. More HERE.

This fall XM Satellite Radio will debut a very cool satellite data information service called XM NavTraffic. The service enables a vehicle's on-board navigation system to display current traffic information for a driver's chosen route. More about that HERE.

This summer, DirecTV plans to offer an optional package with Syracuse's CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS and Fox affiliates, and possibly those from the local WB, UPN and Pax stations. More HERE.

Don't forget, this Monday night is our monthly Charlie Chat Talk. Please join us in our chat room starting at 8:30PM EDT. If you haven't already, be sure to enter our contest to win some great prizes! More about that HERE!

And, on a more personal note, DBSTalk added its 6000th member today. :)

Have a nice Easter weekend!
