    AT&t is a company that spends more money of lobbying and political campaigns than any of their competitors. It seems the are more interested in forcing customers their way than earning them with a good network and customer service (both of which, as a current AT&T wireless customer, I can say are horrible) When I am out of contract with AT&T it 2 months, I am gone....counting down the days. I they bought Directv, I would predict higher prices, less features, more restriction, and poorer customer service.

    I had the same thing happen to me with AT&T! No way on this earth will I ever...ever use them for anything! Even my nephew, who works for AT&T, is switching his cell phone service from them to Verizon.

    I would switch to Dish or go back to cable if DirecTV even mentioned anything like this.

    The idea of even more large corporations engulfing others should scare every consumer

    No thanks

    I'd rather watch OTA SD Black and White on a 80" screen and listen to my wife for the rest of my life than either of those telcos being involved with DTV.

    I am afraid you are doomed to one of those three scenarios no matter what the corporate world decides.
    And it has nothing to do with color unless you count the stars after a whack in the head with a rolling pin.

    Well it's really a toss up then between the BW OTA and the wife!
    But the rolling pin to the head may be the best choice in the long run.
