Sirius and Direct TV Agreement?

Rumor? Developing Story? Someone Not Doing their Job?

I've been following this story for several weeks now. In week 2 of the current NFL season, I learned through my 13 year old son that Direct TV was broadcasting Sirius' NFL Redzone Broadcast on Direct TV channel 212. I took a double take and interest to make sure I was hearing it correctly. I was. An unusual aspect of the broadcast was the muting by Direct TV of any and all Sirius advertising, sometimes coming at the expense of the broadcast itself as the audio was not returned at the broadcast restart. Two weeks ago, I was asked a question regarding this matter, and as of today, Direct TV is broadcasting not only Sirius' NFL Radio broadcast, but they are including ALL Sirius commercials, in house and paid. I can only assume that a deal of some sort was reached by Sirius and Direct TV in the matter. Stay tuned.....

Speculation based on the incomplete info that people gather is a wonderful sport. Dominick, thanks for the info and keep your ears up for us. The bashers are seen as just that, and are ignored. There's a silent majority that look forward to your posts.

Thank's for the feed back. I can only guess that the first cooment was made by one of the xm long sirius bashers from the yehoo boards. I'm hurt. Not!

I spend a lot of time researching internet posts, news stories, press conferences, institutional research reports, charts and SEC filings.

Sometimes, as in the case of the NFL and Stern agreements, the conclusions comes to fruition. Sometimes they do not. I always state my theory, the facts that led to my conclusions, and the fact that it is only a rumor or potential story. I allow the reader of all posts on any forum to draw their own conclusions based on the same info I have taken the time to research. Most people appreciate the effort. Those that do not are usually affiliated with xm or terrestrial radio and see me as a threat.

I can live with that.

Dish Network broadcasts sirius radio channels, most of them if not all of them. Dish network is a great company. Go with Dish network and sirius radio, I wouldn't buy a directv product due to past experiences with them, Go with Dish Network and get your Sirius channels plus others. GO DISH NETWORK AND SIRIUS !!!!
