Well lets see $1 billion is a lot of money but doesn't direct TV have over 30 million customers ?
Doesn't that make it a little over $33.00 each per year ?
Doesn't that make it less then $2.80 each per month ?
Doesn't that make it less then $0.10 each per day ?
Viacoms contract with Direct TV is 7 years old. Do you think that a $3.00 a month raise after 7 years is a big deal ? Over that same 7 years how much has Direct TV raised their rates to you ?
Direct TV made $4.6 billion last year for mostly passing others work on to you.
Viacom made $3.7 billion for producing and backing old and new shows with their money.
You should look at both sides.
