DIRECTV, Inc. Research Report

On August 3, 2013, DIRECTV, Inc. (DIRECTV) issued the following statement
indicating its full support of Time Warner Cable's actions: "Just like the
characters in CBS' Under The Dome, all pay TV customers are feeling trapped
and helpless as broadcasters expect them to absorb ridiculous rate increases
for the exact same programming. In trying to protect our own customers,
DIRECTV has certainly had its share of these battles, so we applaud Time
Warner Cable for fighting back against exorbitant programming cost increases.
We are also appalled to learn that CBS is now punishing DIRECTV customers, who
may happen to have Time Warner as their Internet provider, by denying them
access to CBS content online. The conduct of content companies in their
efforts to extract outrageous fees from distributors and consumers may have
reached a new low." The Full Research Report on DIRECTV, Inc. - including full
detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to

RGU additions in the seasonally slower second quarter. This volume growth
helped propel YTD rebased revenue and OCF growth, excluding Virgin Media, of

respectively, on the strength of its U.K. cable business." The Full Research
