    Maybe D* put the banner up so as not to give the satisfaction of Viacom doing the pull on them..

    Unless Viacom pulled the plug early and the DirecTV computers insert the temporary tech difficulties screen if they detect the feed is lost

    That was what I was thinking too. Normally during a dispute DirecTV displays a graphic about the dispute, not technical difficulties.

    Umm that has been true since at least 1819. Corporate personhood is not a new concept, and is what allows them to sign contracts and sue or be sued in a court of law for nearly 200 years now.

    If you use the math given it's coming out to .1369/day per subsciber (using 20 million subs and 1 billion increase) or $4.10 a month per sub. That's with going that the 1 billion number

    I figured that, my point was that "pennies a day" could mean anything.
