DirecTV Group Inc. (NYSE: DTV), an American direct broadcast satellite television company, reported 10 percent increase in first-quarter revenue.

The growth resulted from increased number of subscribers and soared demand for the best entertainment experience and high-definition and digital-video-recorder services.
