What's "Block Viewing Data Collection" ???

I haven't looked at my bills for a long time and just noticed this...

Thanks!

Go to your on-line account with D*. and look at your Pref's....What it means
is that you have selected NOT share your viewing habits for stats use.

DirecTV gathers your viewing information off of your recievers access cards (probably by phone line). Yeah, it's like what moonman said. They probably use it for other reasons too (like when considering new programing and services).

It's Tivo data collection. You can opt out by calling or via the web site as mentioned above.
No, it's not just Tivo. It should be every DirecTV box with an access card and probably access to a phone line. DirecTV doesn't have anything to do with the info Tivo collects.

If you wanted to opt out of the Tivo data collection with a DirecTivo you always contacted DirecTV for that, not Tivo.
