07:39 EDTDTVDirecTV reports Q4 Latin America net subscriber additions 231K
Excluding changes in foreign exchange rates, DTVLA fourth quarter revenues grew 24% driven by a 15% increase in the average number of subscribers and an 8% increase in local currency ARPU's. When factoring in unfavorable changes in foreign currency, most notably in Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil, DTVLA ARPU declined 7.8% to $51.47 and revenues increased 6% to $1.77B compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. Net subscriber additions of 231,000 in the quarter decreased from 658,000 in the prior year period due to a decline in gross subscriber additions, along with a higher average monthly churn rate. Fourth quarter gross subscriber additions declined to 989,000 principally due to lower imports of set-top boxes for new customers in Venezuela, as well as lower subscriber additions in Argentina, Colombia and Chile associated with more challenging economic and competitive conditions. Average monthly post-paid churn increased to 1.85% and total average monthly churn increased to 2.21% mostly due to higher churn in Brazil related to the effect of a higher mix of mass market subscribers along with more challenging economic and competitive conditions. DTVLA ended the year with 11.57M subscribers, an increase of 12% compared with the year ended December 31, 2012.

08:31 EDTDTVAT&T CEO says net neutrality may end up in Supreme Court, CNBC says
AT&T (T) Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson believes the net neutrality debate may have to be settled by the Supreme Court, reports CNBC, citing a CNBC interview on Wednesday from the World Economic Forum in Davos. Stephenson stated, "We need a neutral Internet... I think everyone agrees with that. Where everyone is getting stuck now is going beyond that." Stephenson also stated the neutrality debate will not affect his company's decision to bid $49B for DirecTV (DTV), though he believes a quick decision from the FCC could quicken Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) $45B negotiations for Time Warner Cable (TWC).
