Q&A session 143

Fred Krueger:   I see on the news that direct TV has lost a lot of subscribers. Does direct tv leave the dishes on the houses and I

see a lot of houses with 2 and 3 dishes, I assume some of them may be for a connection to a different language satellite. Or is there some other reason for so many dishes? Also, I assume when people talk about cutting the cord all they are cutting is the cable tv connection, so if you disconnect from the cable provider the cable is still hooked to the tv, who’s server is the feed coming through?
