2 rethink tv Discover the DIRECTV Difference! When DIRECTV launched in 1994, it was the first entertainment service in the United States to deliver all digital quality, multi- channel television programming via an 18 inch satellite dish. __________________faqs Backround

3 rethink tv DIRECTV provided television programming to rural areas that did not have cable access and became a viable alternative to cable TV. Ever since the small dish launched its first satellite, cable has been faced with a competitor unlike any other. Digital Broadcast Services now owns more than 27% of all video subscribers in the U.S.! Background The DIRECTV Difference!

We are the largest DIRECTV dealer in the nation whose primary focus is on your free-to-guest television service. Background

7 rethink tv As a pioneer in satellite TV technology, DIRECTV has made significant breakthroughs such as: DIRECTV Innovation! - Pay-Per-View - Digital Video Recording/TiVo - On Screen Programming - High Definition Signal Delivery Technology

8 rethink tv DIRECTV is committed to delivering more high definition to North America, as the budget for the entire Spaceway project will exceed one billion dollars. In January 2005, DIRECTV announced it will begin a historic expansion of its capacity with the planned launch of four next- generation satellites that will deliver more than 1,500 local HD and more than 150 national HD channels and other advanced programming services to consumers nationwide by 2007. DIRECTV Innovation! Technology

9 rethink tv The DIRECTV Advantages Flexibility! DIRECTV gives your property the luxury of designing its own unique television lineup. Built around your guests, flag requirements and budget, this allows you to save a lot of expense that is spent on unnecessary programming that cable forces you to carry in their expanded tiers. After all, who ever lost a guest because they did not offer six shopping channels? Difference

10 rethink tv The DIRECTV Advantages Savings! A DIRECTV programming lineup can be aired at your property for as little as $1.25 per room! However, most properties select a package that will include a premium movie channel such as HBO, Starz or Showtime plus ESPN and offer a lineup of more than 50 channels for $8.80 per room plus $29.95 for the local channels. The $29.95 for the local channels is a once a month flat fee for the entire property and is not based on room count. Difference

11 rethink tv The Bottom-line! When you compare a 75 room property that is paying $11.00 per room for free-to-guest TV that includes a premium movie channel, to DIRECTV, its easy to see why so many properties are switching from cable to DIRECTV! CableDIRECTVDifference Monthly:$825$690$135 Annually:$9,900$8,280$1,620 Over a five year period that comes to more than $8,100 in savings! Now multiply that by 10 or 20 properties! Difference
