Whew! What a week this has been. Hope everyone survived. Now that the Dish/Viacom dispute is over, we can get back to our regularly scheduled program. Couple of items that might be of interest. First, Charlie Ergen discusses the Viacom deal along with plans he has for the Gemstar TV Guide. Click Here for more. Also, if you would like to hear the Dish/Viacom conference call which took place on Thursday, you can listen HERE. The call runs about an hour and contains some very interesting information about the deal. On the DirecTV front, another class action lawsuit has been brought against DirecTV for their anti-piracy policies. You can read more about that HERE. DirecTV also entered into an agreement with the NBA to offer a four-hour block of high-def programming from NBA TV. More about that HERE. Last but not least, DirecTV is offering a Starz freeview this weekend. Check out the Starz Website for a complete schedule. Have a great weekend!
