DOJ Sues DirecTV as 'Ringleader' in LA Sportsnet 'Collusion'
This was too important not to cross post. Some people here have some crow to eat I think. :-) Too bad Mz Domino is AWOL.
" Many Dodgers Fans in Los Angeles haven't been able to watch their favorite team...Competitors like AT&T, DirecTV, Cox and others balked at the company's rumored $5 per subscriber asking price for the channel... the DOJ's complaint notes that DirecTV worked with Cox..to "unlawfully exchange competitively-sensitive information" to pressure Time Warner Cable in violation of antitrust rules."
In short, Cox and a couple others took TW into a back room and squeezed them for a better deal for their customers. I see this as a win and Cox should spin it that way.
