I saw a link on sat guys to Swanni's predictions for 2020. One of those was the possibility that Directv could stop accepting new customers and push new customers to AT&T TV. Setting aside what many people here think about Swanni, I thought it was an interesting discussion. 5 TV Predictions For 2020 - The TV Answer Man! What was even more interesting, is one of the posters at sat guys, who is definitely in the business, seemed to think it was a possibility. I'd be surprised, at least in 2020, but it's not like it hasn't happened before...ie Uverse.
