Is it going to happen??? What if it does happen?? It almost happened in the early 2000s. I am talking about the new rumor about Dish/Directv, after AT&T is letting Directv go. Years ago, streaming was never heard of, so now even if they would merge, will it save either one of them or save both from those who have already jumped ship from all of those who are now streaming, and decided to cut the cord.
