Weather Channel returns to lineup after agreeing to reduce amount of reality TV programming it offers -- a sticking point for the satellite provider. There's no word, though, on whether DirecTV in turn agrees to pay a higher fee.
The satellite TV provider is in negotiations to offer the media giant's content as part of an Internet-based product, Reuters reports.
CEO Michael White says DirecTV will need to raise prices next year to combat ever-climbing content costs, but the hike won't be quite as big as the one this year. Don't hold your breath for a Dish combination, either.
The satellite service, which eliminated The Weather Channel from its lineup, says the channel is overrun with reality TV and isn't the only good source of weather news.
Yes, it can display images, but the Sony R550 series also plays well with DirecTV and NFC-equipped phones and tablets.
The TV providers are thinking about bypassing broadcasters' fees by capturing free over-the-air TV signals and streaming them online.
The satellite TV provider is eyeing the video streaming service, according to news reports.
DirecTV's voice search feature lets you speak to your phone to search through TV listings, pay-per-view, and on-demand content using natural language.
The satellite TV provider's package is still available on computers, tablets, or phones -- and on TV for DirecTV subscribers -- but won't be coming to Sony's console this season.
Several companies put in initial bids to buy the video streaming service, and now it's looking like both DirecTV and Time Warner also made follow-up offers.
