Satellite television's growth curve continued upward as the industry Thursday reported serving 18.9 million subscribers as of June 30.

The Satellite Broadcasting & Communications Association said growth occurred in the first six months, with DirecTV Inc. and EchoStar Communications Corp. combined adding 1.2 million subscribers.

The SBCA said the 18.9 million-subscriber total (which includes 700,000 C-band subscribers) equates to about 50 million viewers.

Despite the sector's rapid growth and 20 percent market share, the trade group recently told federal regulators cable operators remain the dominant players in the pay TV market.

19 million down and only 60 million more to go! I will be one happy camper when the totals read:

Satellite - 60 million
Cable - 19 million

If you have the distinct impression that I absolutely despise the cableTV industry .......... you're RIGHT!
