Company Description

DIRECTV is one of the world's leading providers of digital television entertainment services delivering a premium video experience through state-of-the-art technology, unmatched programming, and industry leading customer service to more than 32 million customers in the U.S. and Latin America. Content DIRECTV offers more than 285 channels with more than 170 HD channels in Dolby-Digital® 5.1 theater-quality sound, access to exclusive programming, and the most comprehensive collection of sports programming available anywhere, including NFL SUNDAY TICKET, NHL® CENTER ICE®, and NBA LEAGUE PASS. DIRECTV also lets you watch the hottest movies and shows anywhere, on your TVs at home, and on your laptop, tablet, and cell phone. We offer access to quality programming delivered to homes, airports, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, office buildings, airplanes, automobiles, and portable electronics. AUDIENCE Network™, a unique and exclusive television experience available only to DIRECTV subscribers, partnered with NBC to produce and air three additional seasons of the Emmy Award-winning series Friday Night Lights and became the exclusive home of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning drama Damages starring Glenn Close. Most recently, DIRECTV made its first foray into original content with ROGUE, an exclusive suspense-drama starring award-winning actress Thandie Newton, which is slated to premiere in 2013. The Dan Patrick Show and its companion series The Box Score keep sports fans up to date with the latest sports talk. Viewers also enjoy major events such as the annual DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl, only on DIRECTV's AUDIENCE Network™. Technology Many of our more than 16,000 employees operate our broadcast centers on the ground, monitor our satellites in space and deliver industry-leading service and value. As an all-digital platform, we were the first to deliver an interactive on-screen program guide and Pay Per View ordering by remote control. Our innovations have led to eight Emmy® Awards and hundreds of filings for US patents as we've introduced must-have technologies to the viewing experience. Service For the tenth year in a row, DIRECTV scored higher in customer satisfaction than cable companies measured in the American Customer Satisfaction Index.* More than half of our employees primarily work to deliver the highest level of service to our customers, whether they call 1-800-DIRECTV, work with one of our installers or manage their accounts online at directv.com. We want our customers to rely on us to meet their needs effectively and professionally
