The Transformational AT&T, DirecTV Merger


AT&T’s acquisition of DirecTV is more than a merger — it is a transformational event that could change the entire television space. It has the potential to create such intense competition that it very well could transform the entire television space — meaning cable TV, satellite TV and IPTV — and blend it with wireless. It means more choice and more innovation. Remember what AT&T did with Apple’s iPhone a few short years ago? Those two companies’ collaboration transformed the entire wireless industry.
