I beleive Directv is in the 13 million range. Murdoch wants 20 million subs. Now that the black market gone he might reach that number.

A few cable companies are still bigger.

Directv has 12.6 million customers (20m is the target). Dish Network has 10 million and VOOM is in the 5 digit range. That number should grow because of the free hardware promotion. Will it ever hit 6 digits? Who knows for sure. BEV is 1.3 million and Starchoice is about 800,000.

Here's the top 25 cable companies:

So, what are the targets for Dish and BEV?

Where does Shaw and Rogers Cable fit it?

Do you think that Dish has sky rocketed due to the fact that that DTV is out of the black market ... and you can still hack Dish ... hmmmm ... just my thought
