DirecTV announced Monday that it has eliminated 100 jobs at its Latin American unit as the company moves ahead with a strategy to consolidate that division’s operations into a single office.

Many of the affected jobs will be at the company’s Miami Lakes, Fla., offices, which will be shuttered by second quarter 2006.

Under the plan announced by the company, DirecTV Latin America will operate entirely out of offices in Long Beach, Calif., which will add 30 new positions as a result of the shift.
