DirecTV's Earnings: What to Watch

DirecTV (NASDAQ: DTV  ) reports earnings tomorrow, and while Motley Fool analyst Bill Barker expects that the numbers will be good, in the following video from Wednesday's Investor Beat, he discusses that the real reason he'll be watching closely tomorrow will be to listen for the commentary around the Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA  ) merger with Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC  ) , to see what insights can be gained about the new giant on the block.

Could the cable industry be losing its stranglehold on your television?
You know cable's going away. But do you know how to profit? There's $2.2 trillion out there to be had. Currently, cable grabs a big piece of it. That won't last. And when cable falters, three companies are poised to benefit. Click here for their names. Hint: They're not Netflix, Google, and Apple.

    Well they're raising the god damned price again this month.

    I didn't see a 1 cent reduction in my bill after they dumped Cinemoi, Weather Channel, and others.

    Luckily, Charlotte was just named as a candidate for Google fiber. It may be a few years away, but Direct and Comcast/Time Warner (who just raised my internet another $9 a month) can go to hell when it happens.
