Would You Get DirecTV If It Had More Exclusive Shows?


DirecTV and NBC's deal to keep Friday Night Lights on the air was seen as groundbreaking, but it might just be the start of things for the satellite TV service: A recent New York Times story stated that DirecTV wants to be more like HBO, creating more original series and helping revive or continue neglected network shows. Executives reportedly want another season of FNL, and they're also going to be airing numerous TV movies as pilots for potential series. Getting DirecTV instead of cable is a big decision (and not one that's open to all of us — say, apartment-dwellers), but tell me: If DirecTV were more like HBO, would you want to subscribe?
