The new DirecTV spot beam satellite launches this afternoon. This satellite will allow local channels to be much more pinpointed in terms of geographic location. Since many if not most of the local channels are going to be moved to the spot beam satellite in addition to the new must carry channels, large amounts of bandwidth is going to be freed up on the main satellite at 101. I would encourage every DirecTV customer to send them an e-mail requesting that they use the freed up bandwidth to reduce compression, thus improving picture quality, instead of adding additional channels. The only way that they will know that PQ is important to the customer is to tell them. Thanks!
