    I never noticed it went missing. I'd still be blissfully unaware if DirecTV wasn't trying to make people think producing a one hour music show now and then somehow would make people switch from cable to DirecTV. ;)

    I feel like I'm watching the Disney Channel. Who exactly is their target audience, <13 year olds?

    As with any first show of a series, it had its bumps. I liked it overall though. I'm looking forward to more Rock bands showing up on CDUSA.

    This DAVID HILL (RUPERT'S new friend) that the article refered to is a mover-shaker, no doubt about it. And I think most would agree D* has needed shaking up for a long time now.
    As far as the cd show and satellite radio I couldn't care less. But what I really wonder is after D* put out releases saying NO new price increases and HILL coming on board IS IF HILL caused D* to raise the prices as it says he doesn't take no for an answer. And if so then I do question HILL'S integerity and future motives. Guess time will tell but one thing I know is if a customer says no he WILL have to accept that!

    That's 'cause it didn't. There was a John Mayer Freeview just last week.

    I believe they already did... Comcast and Time-Warner bought Adelphia last April and split it between them, then some Comcast and T-W markets were swapped so that each got the best markets for itself...

    But for some reason, I don't think anyone has actually made the switch yet.

    I was just checking out their MySpace profile and they have over 3,500 friends! Thats insane, but as for the show, between KoRn, Switchfoot, Fallout Boy, and then Rob Zombie coming by March 9th, im really liking the show!

    The one common denominator that I noticed about the people responding that they liked the CDUSA show, was that they are all younger than 27 years old.

    Lee Espinoza is 19 and his responses are “It looks cool so far“ and “I LOVED the first show”.

    Steve1212 is 26 and his response was “I liked it overall though”.

    And some of the other positive responses where made by forum members that are into MySpace.com and/or registered in the last few months, so we could assume (maybe wrongly) that they are younger members.

    I do have to agree with the post by the other members, DirecTV has lost what was once of value.

    My digital cable signal is now a higher quality signal than my DirecTV signal and they offer just as much content for the same price.

    That's more likely because some 99.5% of all myspace members are under 27 years old. :)

    And I have NO PROBLEM at all with that.

    No matter what age a person is, they can have very valid and factual opinions.

    And notice that I gave you a full year.

    Well, im 19 and DirectTV is much cheaper then what i woud be paying for cable. And as for CD USA and MySpace, i just watch it because its entertaining...and thats what T.V. is for :) I was just surprised with the amount of friends they had on their myspace though.
