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 !
