In 2011, the logo became more three-dimensional, and the "DirecTV" wordmark's typeface was changed again. Also, the "D" symbol's width has increased. This logo continues to be used alongside the next one. The company's current slogan is "Don't just watch TV. DirecTV." As of 2015, this logo is being used as a secondary logo.
