Advertising Costs

We record the costs associated with advertising in accordance with Statement of Position (“SOP”) No. 93-7, Reporting on Advertising Costs. Media is expensed when aired and advertising production costs are expensed as incurred. Market development funds are fixed and variable payments to reimburse retailers for the cost of advertising and other product awareness activities. Fixed market development funds are expensed over the periods specified in the applicable agreement; variable costs are expensed at the time a subscriber is activated. During the years ended December 31, 2008, 2007 and 2006, we recorded advertising costs of $109,253, $107,485 and $123,553, respectively. These costs are reflected in Sales and marketing expense in our consolidated statements of operations.
