NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)


Note 1: Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

        DIRECTV, which we sometimes refer to as the company, we, or us, is a leading provider of digital television entertainment in the United States and Latin America. We operate two direct-to-home, or DTH, business units: DIRECTV U.S. and DIRECTV Latin America, which are differentiated by their geographic locations and are engaged in acquiring, promoting, selling and distributing digital entertainment programming primarily via satellite to residential and commercial subscribers. In addition, we own and operate three regional sports networks and own a 60% interest in Game Show Network, LLC, or GSN, a television network dedicated to game-related programming and Internet interactive game playing. We account for our investment in GSN using the equity method of accounting.

    DIRECTV U.S.  DIRECTV Holdings LLC and its subsidiaries, which we refer to as DIRECTV U.S., is the largest provider of DTH digital television services and the second largest provider in the multi-channel video programming distribution industry in the United States.

    DIRECTV Latin America.  DIRECTV Latin America Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries, or DIRECTV Latin America, is a leading provider of DTH digital television services throughout Latin America. DIRECTV Latin America is comprised of: PanAmericana, which provides services in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and certain other countries in the region, and Sky Brasil Servicos Ltda., or Sky Brasil, which is a 93% owned subsidiary. DIRECTV Latin America also includes our 41% equity method investment in Innova, S. de R.L. de C.V., or Sky Mexico, which we include in the PanAmericana segment.

    DIRECTV Sports Networks.  DIRECTV Sports Networks LLC and its subsidiaries, or DSN, is comprised primarily of three regional sports networks based in Seattle, Washington; Denver, Colorado and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, each of which operates under the brand name ROOT Sports. The operating results of DSN are reported as part of the "Sports Networks, Eliminations and Other" reporting segment.

        During the first quarter of 2012, we revised our reportable segments. As further discussed in Note 10, our DIRECTV Latin America business unit, which was previously reported as a single segment, is now reported as two segments, Sky Brasil and PanAmericana. We have restated certain prior period amounts to conform to the current year presentation of reporting segments.

        We have prepared the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, for interim financial reporting. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring items) that are necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full year. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC on February 23, 2012, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 filed with the SEC on May 9, 2012 and all of our other filings, including Current Reports on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC after such date and through the date of this report.

        We prepare our consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP, which requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported herein. We base our estimates and assumptions on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe to be reasonable

under the circumstances. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, our actual results reported in future periods may be affected by changes in those estimates.


Note 2: Divestitures

Equity Method Investments

        In April 2011, we sold an equity method investment for $55 million in cash. As a result of this sale, we recognized a $37 million gain, or $23 million after tax, on the sale in "Other, net" in the Consolidated Statements of Operations, which represents the difference between the selling price and the carrying amount of the equity method investment sold.

        Investment in GSN.    Due to certain governance arrangements which limit DIRECTV's ability to control GSN, we account for GSN as an equity method investment. In March 2011, we sold a 5% ownership interest in GSN for $60 million in cash to our equity partner, reducing our ownership interest to 60%. We recognized a $25 million gain, $16 million after tax, on the sale in "Other, net" in the Consolidated Statements of Operations, which represents the difference between the selling price and the carrying amount of the portion of our equity method investment sold. Additionally, we entered into an agreement with our equity partner in GSN under which we have the right to require them to purchase an additional 18% interest in GSN during specified windows in each of 2012, 2013 and 2014, and in 2014, if we have not exercised that right, our equity partner in GSN has the right to require us to sell such 18% interest to them, in each case for an exercise price which exceeds our carrying value for that portion of the investment. Such exercise price is calculated using a formula based on an agreed upon multiple of the earnings of GSN with a minimum price of $234 million and a maximum price of $288 million. As of June 30, 2012, the book value of our 60% interest in GSN was $442 million.


Note 3: Change in Accounting Estimate

Depreciable Lives of Leased Set-Top Receivers

        We currently lease most set-top receivers provided to new and existing subscribers and therefore capitalize the cost of those set-top receivers. We depreciate capitalized set-top receivers over the estimated useful life of the equipment. As a result of the completion of an extensive evaluation of the estimated useful life of the set-top receivers in the third quarter of 2011, including consideration of historical write-offs, improved efficiencies in our refurbishment program, improved set-top receiver failure rates over time and management's judgment of the risk of technological obsolescence, we determined that the estimated useful life of high-definition, or HD, set-top receivers used in our DIRECTV U.S. business has increased to four years, from three years as previously estimated. We will continue to depreciate standard-definition set-top receivers at DIRECTV U.S. over a three-year estimated useful life. We have accounted for this change in the useful life of the HD set-top receivers at DIRECTV U.S. as a change in an accounting estimate beginning July 1, 2011. This change had the

Note 4: Goodwill

        As discussed in Note 10, during the first quarter of 2012, we revised our reportable segments and now report DIRECTV Latin America as two reportable segments, Sky Brasil and PanAmericana. Accordingly, goodwill historically assigned to the DIRECTV Latin America segment has been restated to reflect the amounts attributable to each of these new reporting segments.

        The fair value of our senior notes was approximately $17,163 million at June 30, 2012 and $14,512 million at December 31, 2011. We calculated the fair values based on quoted market prices of our senior notes, which is a Level 1 input under accounting guidance for fair value measurements of assets and liabilities.

        All of our senior notes were issued by DIRECTV Holdings LLC and DIRECTV Financing Co., Inc., or the Co-Issuers, and have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. On November 14, 2011, we entered into a series of Supplemental Indentures whereby DIRECTV agreed to fully guarantee all of the senior notes then outstanding, jointly and severally with substantially all of DIRECTV Holdings LLC's domestic subsidiaries. The Supplemental Indentures provide that DIRECTV unconditionally guarantees that the principal and interest on the respective senior notes will be paid in full when due and that the obligations of the Co-Issuers to the holders of the outstanding senior notes will be performed. All of the senior notes issued since November 14, 2011 are also similarly fully guaranteed by DIRECTV.

        As a result of the guarantees, holders of the senior notes have the benefit of DIRECTV's interests in the assets and related earnings of our operations that are not held through DIRECTV Holdings LLC and its subsidiaries. Those operations are primarily our DTH digital television services throughout Latin America which are held by DIRECTV Latin America Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries and DIRECTV Sports Networks LLC and its subsidiaries. However, the subsidiaries that

DIRECTV

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—(continued)

(Unaudited)

own and operate DIRECTV Latin America Holdings and DIRECTV Sports Networks LLC have not guaranteed the senior notes.

        The guarantees are unsecured senior obligations of DIRECTV and rank equally in right of payment with all of DIRECTV's existing and future senior debt and rank senior in right of payment to all of DIRECTV's future subordinated debt, if any. The guarantees are effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured obligations, if any, of DIRECTV to the extent of the value of the assets securing the obligations. DIRECTV will not be subject to the covenants contained in each indenture of the senior notes and our guarantees will terminate and be released on the terms set forth in each of the indentures.

        Our senior notes payable mature as follows: $1,000 million in 2014, $1,200 million in 2015, $2,250 million in 2016 and $11,550 million in 2017 and thereafter. The amount of interest accrued related to our outstanding debt was $234 million at June 30, 2012 and $201 million at December 31, 2011.

Revolving Credit Facility

        In February 2011, DIRECTV U.S.' $500 million, six-year senior secured credit facility was terminated and replaced with a five-year, $2 billion revolving credit facility. We pay a commitment fee of 0.30% per year for the unused commitment under the revolving credit facility, and borrowings bear interest at an annual rate of (i) the London interbank offer rate (LIBOR) (or for Euro advances the EURIBOR rate) plus 1.50% or at our option (ii) the higher of the prime rate plus 0.50% or the Fed Funds Rate plus 1.00%. The commitment fee and the annual interest rate may be increased or decreased under certain conditions, which include changes in DIRECTV U.S.' long-term, unsecured debt ratings. The revolving credit facility has been fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, by substantially all of DIRECTV U.S.' domestic subsidiaries on a senior unsecured basis.

Covenants and Restrictions

        The revolving credit facility requires DIRECTV U.S. to maintain at the end of each fiscal quarter a specified ratio of indebtedness to adjusted net income. The revolving credit facility also includes covenants that restrict DIRECTV U.S.' ability to, among other things, (i) incur additional subsidiary indebtedness, (ii) incur liens, (iii) enter into certain transactions with affiliates, (iv) merge or consolidate with another entity, (v) sell, assign, lease or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, and (vi) change its lines of business. Additionally, the senior notes contain restrictive covenants that are similar. Should DIRECTV U.S. fail to comply with these covenants, all or a portion of its borrowings under the senior notes could become immediately payable and its revolving credit facility could be terminated. At June 30, 2012, management believes DIRECTV U.S. was in compliance with all such covenants. The senior notes and revolving credit facility also provide that the borrowings may be required to be prepaid if certain change-in-control events occur.

        Restricted Cash.    Restricted cash of $6 million as of June 30, 2012 and $30 million as of December 31, 2011 was included as part of "Prepaid expenses and other" in our Consolidated Balance Sheets. These amounts secure our letter of credit obligations. The restrictions on the cash will be removed as the letters of credit expire.

Note 6: Contingencies

    Redeemable Noncontrolling Interest

        In connection with our acquisition of Sky Brasil in 2006, our partner who holds the remaining 7% interest, Globo Comunicações e Participações S.A., or Globo, was granted the right, until January 2014, to require us to purchase all, but not less than all, of its shares in Sky Brasil. Upon exercising this right, the fair value of Sky Brasil shares will be determined by mutual agreement or by an outside valuation expert, and we have the option to elect to pay for the Sky Brasil shares in cash, shares of our common stock or a combination of both. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we estimated that Globo's remaining 7% equity interest in Sky Brasil had a fair value of approximately $265 million. Adjustments to the carrying amount of the redeemable noncontrolling interest are recorded to additional paid-in-capital. We determined the fair values using significant unobservable inputs, which are Level 3 inputs under accounting guidance for measuring fair value.

    Venezuela Foreign Currency Exchange Controls

        Companies operating in Venezuela are required to obtain Venezuelan government approval to exchange Venezuelan bolivars into U.S. dollars at the official rate of 4.3 bolivars per U.S. dollar. Our ability to pay U.S. dollar denominated obligations and repatriate cash generated in Venezuela in excess of local operating requirements is limited, resulting in an increase in the cash balance at our Venezuelan subsidiary. At such time that exchange controls are eased, accumulated cash balances may ultimately be repatriated at less than their currently reported value, as the official exchange rate has not changed since January 2010 despite continuing high inflation in Venezuela. In addition, in the event of a significant devaluation of the bolivar, we may recognize a charge to earnings based on the amount of bolivar denominated net monetary assets (monetary assets net of monetary liabilities) held at the time of such devaluation and this may affect the growth of our Venezuelan business.

        We use the official 4.3 bolivars per U.S. dollar exchange rate to translate the financial statements of our Venezuelan subsidiary. As of June 30, 2012, our Venezuelan subsidiary had Venezuelan bolivar denominated net monetary assets of $339 million, including cash of $455 million.

    Litigation

        Litigation is subject to uncertainties and the outcome of individual litigated matters is not predictable with assurance. Various legal actions, claims and proceedings are pending against us arising in the ordinary course of business. We have established loss provisions for matters in which losses are probable and can be reasonably estimated. Some of the matters may involve compensatory, punitive, or treble damage claims, or demands that, if granted, could require us to pay damages or make other expenditures in amounts that could not be estimated at June 30, 2012. After discussion with counsel representing us in those actions, it is the opinion of management that such litigation is not expected to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements. We expense legal costs as incurred.

        Pegasus Development Corporation and Personalized Media Communications L.L.C.    In December, 2000, Pegasus Development Corporation and Personalized Media Communications L.L.C. filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against DIRECTV, Inc., Hughes Electronics Corporation, Thomson Consumer Electronics, Inc., and Philips Electronics North America Corporation. The suit alleged infringement of certain claims of seven United States patents and sought an injunction and a monetary award including damages for infringement, interest, costs, and attorneys'

fees. Trial is presently scheduled for November 2013. The suit now involves claims of four of the seven patents originally asserted, all of which have expired, and the validity and infringement of which are disputed by DIRECTV.

        Other Intellectual Property Litigation.    We are a defendant in several unrelated lawsuits claiming infringement of various patents relating to various aspects of our businesses. In certain of these cases other industry participants are also defendants, and also in certain of these cases we expect that at least some potential liability would be the responsibility of our equipment vendors pursuant to applicable contractual indemnification provisions. To the extent that the allegations in these lawsuits can be analyzed by us at this stage of their proceedings, we believe the claims are without merit and intend to defend the actions vigorously. We have determined that the likelihood of a material liability in such matters is remote or have made appropriate accruals. The final disposition of these claims is not expected to have a material effect on our consolidated financial position or results of operations. However, if an adverse ruling is made in a lawsuit involving key intellectual property, such ruling could result in a loss that would be material to our consolidated results of operations of any one period. No assurance can be given that any adverse outcome would not be material to our consolidated financial position.

        Early Cancellation Fees.    In 2008, a number of plaintiffs filed putative class action lawsuits in state and federal courts challenging the early cancellation fees we assess our customers when they do not fulfill their programming commitments. Several of these lawsuits are pending, some in California state court purporting to represent statewide classes, and some in federal courts purporting to represent nationwide classes. The lawsuits seek both monetary and injunctive relief. While the theories of liability vary, the lawsuits generally challenge these fees under state consumer protection laws as both unfair and inadequately disclosed to customers. Our motions to compel arbitration have been granted in all of the federal cases, except as to claims seeking injunctive relief under California statutes. The denial of our motion as to those claims is currently on appeal. We believe that our early cancellation fees are adequately disclosed, and represent reasonable estimates of the costs we incur when customers cancel service before fulfilling their programming commitments.

        ECAD.    Sky Brasil, along with other video distributors in Brazil, is disputing charges assessed by Escritorio Central de Arrecadacao, or ECAD, the organization responsible for collecting performance rights fees under Brazilian law. Sky Brasil has been withholding payments to ECAD since 2004, and has accrued amounts both we and Sky Brasil believe are adequate to satisfy amounts owed to ECAD. In order to continue its opposition to ECAD's claims, in October 2011, Sky Brasil was required to provide a letter of credit in the amount of approximately $85 million which represents the contested fees plus accrued interest and penalties, for the period from January 2004 to September 2009, plus an additional 30% required by Brazilian law. Sky Brasil's dispute with ECAD is currently pending in the Superior Justice Tribunal, and there are other claims by the Brazilian pay television association, known as ABTA, against ECAD before the Brazilian antitrust board, or CADE, which may affect ECAD or the rights fees it is attempting to collect.

        From time to time, we receive investigative inquiries or subpoenas from state and federal authorities with respect to alleged violations of state and federal statutes. These inquiries may lead to legal proceedings in some cases. DIRECTV U.S. has received a request for information from the Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, on issues similar to those resolved in 2010 with a multistate group of state attorneys general. We are cooperating with the FTC by providing information about our sales and marketing practices and customer complaints.

    Income Tax Matters

        We have received tax assessments from certain foreign jurisdictions and have agreed to indemnify previously divested businesses for certain tax assessments relating to periods prior to their respective divestitures. These assessments are in various stages of the administrative process or litigation, and we believe we have adequately provided for any related liability.

        While the outcome of these assessments and other tax issues cannot be predicted with certainty, we believe that the ultimate outcome will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

    Satellites

        We may purchase in-orbit and launch insurance to mitigate the potential financial impact of satellite launch and in-orbit failures if the premium costs are considered economic relative to the risk of satellite failure. The insurance generally covers the unamortized book value of covered satellites. We do not insure against lost revenues in the event of a total or partial loss of the capacity of a satellite. We generally rely on in-orbit spare satellites and excess transponder capacity at key orbital slots to mitigate the impact a satellite failure could have on our ability to provide service. At June 30, 2012, the net book value of in-orbit satellites was $1,790 million, all of which was uninsured.

    Other

        We are contingently liable under standby letters of credit and bonds in the aggregate amount of $143 million at June 30, 2012, primarily related to a judicial deposit in Brazil for the ECAD matter discussed above.


Note 7: Related Party Transactions

        In the ordinary course of our operations, we enter into transactions with related parties as discussed below. Related parties include Globo, which provides programming and advertising to Sky Brasil, and companies in which we hold equity method investments, including Sky Mexico and GSN.

        The majority of payments under contractual arrangements with related parties are pursuant to multi-year programming contracts. Payments under these contracts are typically subject to annual rate increases and are based on the number of subscribers receiving the related programming.

Note 8: Stockholders' Deficit

Share Repurchase Program

        Since 2006 our Board of Directors has approved multiple authorizations for the repurchase of our common stock, the most recent of which was announced in the first quarter of 2012, authorizing share repurchases of up to an additional $6 billion. As of June 30, 2012, we had approximately $4,221 million remaining under this authorization. The authorizations allow us to repurchase our common stock from time to time through open market purchases and negotiated transactions, or otherwise. The timing, nature and amount of such transactions will depend on a variety of factors, including market conditions, and the program may be suspended, discontinued or accelerated at any time. The sources of funds for the purchases under the remaining authorizations are our existing cash on hand, cash from operations and potential additional borrowings. Purchases are made in the open market, through block trades and other negotiated transactions. Repurchased shares are retired, but remain authorized for registration and issuance in the future.

        The following table sets forth information regarding shares repurchased and retired during the periods presented:

Of the $2,901 million in repurchases during the six months ended June 30, 2011, $56 million were paid for in July 2011. Amounts repurchased but settled subsequent to the end of such periods are considered non-cash financing activities and excluded from the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

Note 9: Earnings Per Common Share

        We compute basic earnings per common share, or EPS, by dividing net income attributable to DIRECTV by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.

        Diluted EPS considers the effect of common equivalent shares, which consist entirely of common stock options and unvested restricted stock units issued to employees. In the computation of diluted EPS under the treasury stock method, the amount of assumed proceeds from restricted stock units and common stock options includes the amount of compensation cost attributable to future services not yet recognized, proceeds from the exercise of the options and the incremental income tax benefit or liability as if the awards were exercised or distributed during the period. We exclude common equivalent shares from the computation in loss periods as their effect would be antidilutive and we exclude common stock options from the computation of diluted EPS when their exercise price is greater than the average market price of our common stock. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 we excluded no common stock options from the computation of diluted EPS, because all options' exercise prices were less than the average market price of our common stock during the periods presented.

Note 10: Segment Reporting

        Our reportable segments, which are differentiated by their products and services as well as geographic location, are DIRECTV U.S., Sky Brasil and PanAmericana, which are engaged in acquiring, promoting, selling and distributing digital entertainment programming primarily via satellite to residential and commercial subscribers, and the Sports Networks, Eliminations and Other segment, which includes our three regional sports networks that provide programming devoted to local professional sports teams and college sporting events and locally produce their own programming. Sports Networks, Eliminations and Other also includes the corporate office, eliminations and other entities.

        We revised our reportable segments in the first quarter of 2012 and now report Sky Brasil and PanAmericana as segments. We previously reported these segments as the DIRECTV Latin America segment. As discussed in Note 1, the Sky Brasil segment includes our 93% owned subsidiary Sky Brasil Servicos, Ltda. The PanAmericana segment includes the results of our wholly owned subsidiaries that provide services in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and certain other countries in the region. Sky Brasil and PanAmericana are now reported as separate segments due to Sky Brasil's growing significance to DIRECTV's consolidated results of operations and these segments are reflective of how our Chief Executive Officer currently reviews our operating results.

Operating profit before depreciation and amortization, which is a financial measure that is not determined in accordance with GAAP can be calculated by adding amounts under the caption "Depreciation and amortization expense" to "Operating profit." This measure should be used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures and is not presented as an alternative measure of operating results, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our management and Board of Directors use operating profit before depreciation and amortization to evaluate the operating performance of our company and our business segments and to allocate resources and capital to business segments. This metric is also used as a measure of performance for incentive compensation purposes and to measure income generated from operations that could be used to fund capital expenditures, service debt or pay taxes. Depreciation and amortization expense primarily represents an allocation to current expense of the cost of historical capital expenditures and for intangible assets resulting from prior business acquisitions. To compensate for the exclusion of depreciation and amortization expense from operating profit, our management and Board of Directors separately measure and budget for capital expenditures and business acquisitions.

We believe this measure is useful to investors, along with GAAP measures (such as revenues, operating profit and net income), to compare our operating performance to other communications, entertainment and media service providers. We believe that investors use current and projected operating profit before depreciation and amortization and similar measures to estimate our current or prospective enterprise value and make investment decisions. This metric provides investors with a means to compare operating results exclusive of depreciation and amortization. Our management

    believes this is useful given the significant variation in depreciation and amortization expense that can result from the timing of capital expenditures, the capitalization of intangible assets, potential variations in expected useful lives when compared to other companies and periodic changes to estimated useful lives.

Note 11: Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements

        As discussed above in Note 5, on November 14, 2011, DIRECTV provided a guarantee of all the outstanding senior notes of DIRECTV Holdings LLC and DIRECTV Financing Co., Inc, or the Co-issuers, and is a guarantor for the March 2012 Notes as well.

        The following condensed consolidating financial statements of DIRECTV and subsidiaries have been prepared pursuant to rules regarding the preparation of consolidating financial statements of Regulation S-X. For the periods prior to November 14, 2011, the condensed consolidating financial statements have been prepared as if the DIRECTV guarantee had been in place during that period.

        These condensed consolidating financial statements present the condensed consolidating statements of operations and condensed consolidating statements of comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the condensed consolidating balance sheets as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

DIRECTV

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—(continued)

        The condensed consolidating financial statements are comprised of DIRECTV, or the Parent Guarantor, its indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, DIRECTV Holdings, DIRECTV Financing and each of DIRECTV Holdings' material subsidiaries (other than DIRECTV Financing), or the Guarantor Subsidiaries, as well as other subsidiaries who are not guarantors of the senior notes, or the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and the eliminations necessary to present DIRECTV's financial statements on a consolidated basis. The Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries consist primarily of DIRECTV's direct-to-home digital television services throughout Latin America which are held by DIRECTV Latin America Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries, and DIRECTV Sports Networks LLC and its subsidiaries which are comprised primarily of three regional sports networks.

        The accompanying condensed consolidating financial statements are presented based on the equity method of accounting for all periods presented. Under this method, investments in subsidiaries are recorded at cost and adjusted for the subsidiaries' cumulative results of operations, capital contributions and distributions, and other changes in equity. Elimination entries include consolidating and eliminating entries for investments in subsidiaries, intercompany activity and balances, and income taxes. We previously aggregated "Intercompany receivables" and "Investment in subsidiaries" as "Intercompany assets" in the condensed consolidating balance sheets. We have reclassified certain prior year intercompany amounts reported in the condensed consolidating balance sheets in order to conform to the current year presentation.

ITEM 2.    MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

        The following management's discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC on February 23, 2012, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 filed with the SEC on May 9, 2012 and all of our other filings, including Current Reports on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC after such date and through the date of this report.

        This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may contain certain statements that we believe are, or may be considered to be, "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of various provisions of the Securities Act of 1933 and of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of statements that include phrases such as we "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "plan", "foresee", "project" or other similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make regarding our outlook for 2012 financial results, liquidity and capital resources.

        Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you therefore against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include economic, business, competitive, national or global political, market and regulatory conditions and the following, each of which is described in more detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 or in Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q:

    Levels of competition are increasing.

    We depend on others to produce programming and programming costs are increasing.

    Increased subscriber churn or subscriber upgrade and retention costs could materially adversely affect our financial performance.

    Our subscriber acquisition costs could materially increase.

    DIRECTV Latin America is subject to various additional risks associated with doing business internationally, which include political and economic instability and foreign currency exchange rate volatility and controls.

    Our ability to keep pace with technological developments is uncertain.

    Our business relies on intellectual property, some of which is owned by third parties, and we may inadvertently infringe patents and proprietary rights of others.

    Construction or launch delays on satellites could materially adversely affect our revenues and earnings.

    Our satellites are subject to significant launch and operational risks.

    The loss of a satellite, none of which is currently insured, could materially adversely affect our business and earnings.

DIRECTV

    Satellite programming signals have been stolen and may be stolen in the future, which could result in lost revenues and would cause us to incur incremental operating costs that do not result in subscriber acquisition.

    The ability to maintain FCC licenses and other regulatory approvals is critical to our business.

    We may have an indemnity obligation to Liberty Media, which is not limited in amount or subject to any cap, that could be triggered if parts of the Liberty Transaction or Liberty's 2008 Transaction with News Corporation are treated as a taxable transaction.

    We face risks arising from the outcome of various legal proceedings.

    We rely on network and information systems and other technology and a disruption or failure of such networks, systems or technology as a result of misappropriation of data or other malfeasance, as well as outages, natural disasters, accidental releases of information or similar events, may disrupt our business.

    Our strategic initiatives may not be successfully implemented, may not elicit the expected customer response in the market and may result in competitive reactions.

    Those and the other factors that are described in more detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

        Any forward-looking statement made by us in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may occur and it is not possible for us to predict them all. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future development or otherwise, except as required by law.
