    So now you have to sell them AT&T TV and cable internet service. I wonder whats going to happen to the DIRECTV guys at Costcos?

    What's the monthly cost of a Genie wireless mini if you buy your own box?

    It will work with the HR54, it‘s considered a lease and you will pay an additional $7.00 a month to watch programming on it. Be careful if you buy one off of EBay, AT&T might not activate it for you, they might require a tech to come out if you want to add an additional client.

    It would be neat if the technology allowed the receivers to tune into whichever spot beam locals you were near in your RV or semi truck.

    Impressive response by Sirius.

    I listen to those channels as well and they don’t bother me. I like the original 80’s VJ’s from MTV, I grew up watching them. Good time.

    What DJ’s? There are no DJ’s on the channels I listen to, plus there’s no commercials.

    Wait, I thought RV’ers could continue to get them with an RV waiver?

    Free Previews and Free Channels (Covid-19 Response)

    I’m not saying give it away forever, just for the stay at home time frame.

    Free Previews and Free Channels (Covid-19 Response)

    I still don’t understand why AT&T (who owns it) didn’t offer HBO for free a month ago when all of this stay at home started.

    Directv Remote & New Sony Stereo Receiver

    My thoughts exactly. If you feed the TV with the video, then feed audio from the TV to the AVR vis a single HDMI output, the same way you feed Toslink to the AVR now, I think it would simplify things.

    Directv Remote & New Sony Stereo Receiver

    Yeah I know but I think that confuses a lot of people. If they had a dedicated HDMI output that might make things a little more simpler. I don’t know.........

    They should put HDMI outputs on TV’s. Run everything to the TV, then HDMI out to the AVR.

    Breaking: DIRECTV to Carry SportsNet LA

    I’ve been saying this for years, there are too many channels showing the same shows over and over and over again. A lot of them could combine into 1 or 2 channels and be done with it.
