DirecTV's Deep Freeze
That's according to the Associated Press, citing Jonathan Rubin, DirecTV's SVP of financial planning and investor relations, one of a heap of execs who are speaking at this week's UBS Global Media and Communications Conference in New York.
"Despite the slowing economy, we remain quite bullish about 2009 to date. The economy has not had a material impact on our business," Rubin said, expressing hope that DirecTV's new deal with AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) will drive new subscriptions. (See DirecTV's Gain Could Result in Dish Losses.)
