The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional
Corporation, has commenced an investigation into possible breaches of

board of directors of DIRECTV relating to the proposed buyout of the
Company by AT&T (News - Alert), Inc. ("AT&T").
Under the terms of the transaction, DIRECTV shareholders will receive
$28.50 in cash and 1.905 shares of AT&T common stock for each share of
DIRECTV stock they own, representing a value of approximately $95.00 per
share. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst followin
DIRECTV has set a target price of $100 per share.
