How much would you pay for EVERY CHANNEL?

directvAre you super rich? Do you love television? DirecTV has come up with what our pals over at Engadget call "the ultimate couch potato package". And I couldn't have said it better. The new package offers everything. HBO, Showtime, Sports, HDTV, Adult programming, and PAY PER VIEW... and no fewer than ten DVRs to spread around your pad. And, it's all for less than the monthly cost of a new Mercedes (assuming you don't put any money down)!

The cost is about $625/month or $7,500 a year.

I saw the same thing over at Engadget, and my issue is with the Direct TV DVRs. The basic unit they go with is an absolute nightmare, as they seemed to ignore everything that was great in the original Tivo units. One of the most annoying things about the unit is the universal remote--which forces you to hit a button twice to select a different component. I'm sure the units will get better as time goes on, but if you are going to spend this cash, it should be top-notch.

What I would really love is to be able to only pay for the channels I want. Honestly, how many channels do most of us really watch? I don't watch about 75% of the channels on my Comcast standard cable, yet it stil costs me about $45 a month because that's the only way to get some of the cable channels. Perhaps with the IPTV revolution we'll see services that can completely replace the current clunky cable/satellite model.

And they wonder why TV torrents are so popular...
