Kiss your cable TV goodbye now that DirecTV has launched a new satellite to expand the amount of local channels available to subscribers in 41 major metropolitan areas in the United States. Although HDTV is the real future of DirecTV, many subscribers felt that the lack of local network channels was one of the services weaknesses.

Concert Ticket sales were down in 2001 according to Pollstar Magazine but the prices were up $2 to $43 on average. That is before fees and surcharges which are also seemingly on the rise. September 11th was as much of a factor on concert ticket sales in 2001 because many of the big tours were already over before the attacks. How fears of terrorism will impact concert sales for the summer tours in 2002 is hard to predict. Some say they will be lower because of fear or peoples lack of interest momentarily in popular music (see 2001 record sales story). Others point to the record moview box office returns for Q4 2001 and say large scale concerts offer an even better escape.

Until now, a major gripe with DVD-Audio players among consumers and manufacturers alike has been the lack of a high-resolution digital output, in particular for audio. Copy protection issues have led to the majority of manufacturers (with a small number of exceptions) limiting their digital output capability to "CD-quality": 44.1 or 48 kHz sampling, while the DVD-Audio specification allows for superior quality sample rates, up to 192 kHz. As a result, consumers have had to rely on the digital converters built into the player, which are not always as good as they could be and are certainly not in the same league as external converters or those in a good receiver.
