Since it appears the rumored DirecTV/DISH partnership won't come to fruition, the recent idea is that AT&T might be sliding into position to acquire DirecTV and all those HD channels. Multichannel News cited an analyst report issuing a buy rating on Liberty Entertainment shares, based on an increased probability of AT&T snapping up a piece of the satcaster, if DirecTV doesn't buy Liberty first. Enough maybes, coulds and probablys for you? Still, there's no need to wait if you want some DirecTV in your triple play right now.
