    More on DirecTV's (DTV) Q3: Growth in Latin America paced revenue gains. The company improved its margins during the quarter as subscriber acquistion costs and general expenses trended lower. Net subscriber growth of 67K, down from last year's mark due to a higher churn rate. DTV -1.1% premarket. (PR)

    The iPhone 5 is still supply-constrained at U.S. Apple Stores, says Piper's Gene Munster after polling 70 of them. He also found ongoing shortages at AT&T and Verizon, though Sprint's situation is said to be improving. Those comments are probably contributing to today's Apple (AAPL -2.7%) selloff, especially since Munster's Oct. 4 report on shortages proved accurate. On a more positive note, Munster's poll of 730 U.S. consumers found 55% of those planning to buy a smartphone indicating they want an iPhone 5.

    VC firm Andreessen Horowitz just invested $15.5M in ItsOn, a startup hoping to change how carriers such as AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) charge for mobile data. Instead of charging users monthly for a bucket of data good for any app, consumers, carriers, and developers would be able to pay/bill for specific apps over various periods of time. Getting carriers to change is never easy, but the fact AT&T and others have already talked about per-app billing suggests ItsOn's approach could find some takers.

    DirecTV (DTV) launches a new channel with dedicated 24/7 coverage on Hurricane Sandy. The company has drawn praise in the past for its ability to adjust programming on-the-fly to breaking stories. The bigger issue: While keeping up with rivals with programming in the U.S. is necessary to maintain market share, in high-growth Latin America the company lacks high-tech cable competition and is looking at proprietary channels as a revenue driver.

    The prepaid iPhone 5 units being sold by Leap Wireless are moving "very well," claims Leap Wireless (LEAP) CEO Doug Hutcheson. But like other carriers, Leap is dealing with iPhone 5 supply shortages. Some think Leap's prepaid offering - it sells the 16GB iPhone 5 for $499, but doesn't require a contract, and allows it to be used with a $55/month service plan - amounts to a trial balloon on Apple's (AAPL) part.

    Dish Network (DISH +0.5%) and DirecTV (DTV +0.6%) should be forced to pay the same fees that cable operators kick in to support the FCC, according to the American Cable Association. The cable industry pays $0.95 per subscriber to support regulation in the sector.

    AT&T (T -0.9%) gives back the premarket gains it saw following its Q3 report (I, II). For yet another quarter, stock buybacks (they soared to $3.8B in Q3) allowed EPS to beat estimates even as revenue missed. Also, total wireless net adds fell to 678K from Q2's 1.3M, and postpaid net adds fell to 151K from 320K. Wireless operating margin fell 410 bps Q/Q to 26.2%, partly due to a 20% Q/Q increase in smartphone sales. Total churn rose to 1.34% from Q2's low 1.18%. Verizon (VZ +0.9%), interestingly, is going in the opposite direction.

    Apple (AAPL +1.8%) bounces after AT&T (T) discloses it activated 4.7M iPhones in Q3, well above Q2's 3.7M. That figure comes in spite of Ma Bell's admission iPhone 5 supply constraints affected its postpaid net adds. Apple sold off yesterday on concerns about the iPad Mini's pricing, and perhaps also Tim Cook's claim that cumulative iPad sales topped 100M 2 weeks ago - that implies FQ4 sales of 16M, below an 18M consensus. FQ3 iPad sales were boosted by inventory builds, something that may have led to an FQ4 inventory draw-down.

    More on AT&T (T) Q3 earnings: FY 2012 free cash flow guidance bumped $2B to $18B or more. Smartphone sales of 6.1M, 4.7M iPhones activated. Wireless EBITDA service margin of 40.8%, on track to hit full-year guidance of 42.5%. Postpaid subscriber ARPU +2.4% Y/Y, the strongest growth in 6 quarters. On CNBC as the numbers crossed, Buffett has "no interest" in AT&T or VZ, saying he doesn't know what they would look like in 5-10 years. Shares +1.9% premarket. (PR)
