I wrote a white paper 9 years ago sounding the alarm and send to DirecTV management. I urged them to move to streaming and combining satellite delivery with streaming. They ignored my paper for they were busy milking the company to enrich themselves... read more

Hearing rumors of more layoffs for DIRECTV call centers in OCT or 1st qt 2017. ANYONE heard anything of this? Team leader positions up???
I heard there will be a huge surplus in LA before the holidays seasons. Mostly in engineering and ops. I am surprised it took this long for AT&T to decide after failing to integrate DTV. Well, this failure does not surprise me, however, when AT&T... read more

how was the severance package for the layoff round last November 2014? Thank you.
Any big changes due to AT&T acquisition?
I do not have great experiences here, I worked at DirecTV for about 2 years and could not wait to leave
