Now that there are other options to cable and satellite, people are dropping the services that they were mostly forced into, and choosing the bettre options. Competition is a good thing, but it's the source that puts in all the bugs and other clutter, so those might be there no matter who you get your signal from.
DirecTV merely had a slightly less severe decline than other companies, but I am pretty sure it saw a "loss of growth" that would be pretty serious. For once, the industry must start to be concerned about losing the subscribers that they have been sticking it to for so long.
The "Bugs" are always going to be there, unless something happens that makes them removed. People are hooking up their TVs to Antennas, and returning to free, over-the-air, broadcasts. There may still be those pesky "Bugs" as well as Commercials, but now they don't have to PAY to watch them. Others are switching over to paid entertainment sources, such as Netflix and/or Redbox. I have never done these, but to the best of my knowledge, these are not subject to those intrusive "Pop-Ups" as well as Commercials. And there are those who have turned to yet another source, one that lets you keep the program after you watch it.
