Thread regarding DIRECTV Group Inc. layoffs

ATT has announced they will move to streaming, what will happen to us broadcasting center guys and our engineering guys?

Sounds like what they are describing there can be done with just an app on TV or tablet. Then satellite and set top can all be abandoned. Any thoughts?

About sling media .... it's a funny thing.

Dtvla was using sling boxes to see broadcast in South America outside of the US RF footprint.

Instead of DTV buying sling media they sat on their a-- and dish bought them. Genius!!

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. They awarded to themselves stock options, got rid of talented engineers to bring in their friends/family members with no skills whatsoever. Then they borrowed money to buy back their own stocks to probe up price, so that they could exercise their options at inflated price.

In short, DirecTV management ruined the company and let employees hanged to dry !
