Hi I'm running for president of DirecTV. Here's my platform:

All SD only channels will be available on Choice.

All Channels with HD feeds will be available on Choice Xtra.

One "premium channel package" that has all of the premium movie channels (named "Movie Super Pack" or the like).

Eliminate Sports Pack, move national channels in it to Choice or Choice Xtra, offer regional sports networks on a market by market basis, eliminating blackouts.

Remove pay per view movie channels, all pay per view movies will be on demand only, use freed up bandwidth for more national HD channels.

Remove MPEG-2 HD duplicates, use freed up bandwidth for more national HD channels.

So can I count on your vote?

Sure. You sound like every other politician. Making promises you can't keep. :thumbsup:

Fantastic ideas man. You forgot to mention the prorated a la carte package where you pick and only pay for the channels you want.

Sounds OK until the company goes bankrupt.

Won't they then just print more money like the Feds?

Sounds like a great idea.
