Trailer Park Boys move south of the border

US satellite service DirecTV acquires the popular TV show.




American satellite service DirecTV has huge ambitions to become the next HBO, according to an article in the NY Times. Or more like a more-expensive gateway to TBS or Peachtree—you know those channels where you can watch Deep Blue Sea 500 times in a row, or get your heroine-fix of Seinfeld. Anyway, the plan is to "become a pre-cable window for those premium channels," and one of their first acquisitions is Trailer Park Boys, which will start airing on February 5.
