Of course it wont get me the Lakers. I also am quite aware they are in negotiations. However, I can add my voice to the multitude of LA Fans troubled with this issue, to let DirecTV know that there is a consequence for dragging their feet. Time Warner want's something on the order of $3.89/customer to allow DTV to carry their network. I spend something on the order of $170/month for 4 HD DVRs, + NFL Sunday Ticket Max. If I must... I'll pay the $4/month for the channel. Hey, DTV, make a profit, charge me $5/month. What's another $4/month on $170 (please don't quote me the percentage
). The point being that I'm not trying to "get the Lakers" because one lone voice will not do that. If more people voiced their concern, maybe they would move a little faster.
BTW... When I call the standard line, the first line of operators are useless. If it's not written on the paper in front of them, they have no clue how to respond to you.
