AT&T buys DirecTV for $48.5 billion
Good Thing that Verizon isn't getting Dish any time soon.
No Joke....glad I have Dish! I switched after 3 years of price increases and exactly 0 additional Channels to show for it. I can't just imagine how bad its gonna be now....
Ugh fuck AT&T I deal with them too much as it is now I've gotta deal with them for this too?
I thought they already were together my mom has had a bundle thing with them forever I guess it's official now.
At&t partners with Dish, now they got DTV it is a new game, they will force every one to Uverse TV or go with DTV and drop dish,
Actually it appears it all hinges on Direct Tv relicencing it's exclusive football deal. There's a clause that if it can't get it AT&T can stop the deal.
The Sunday Ticket deal is all but done for 2014 - The NFL already did their new tv contracts a few months ago - the NFL network lost the Thursday Night Game Exclusivity for half the season, and there were a few more big issues that were worked out.
DirecTv's Sunday Ticket contract however, Expires in Feb 2015. Then at that point ATT can buy Sunday Ticket Rights.
