    Just as D* thrived the past few years. But who has said anything about E* not surviving. You are stretching things worse than TNT does.

    I don't think they are going anywhere (except under the ATT&T umbrella). But I do honestly think you are way too attached to be fair in your view.

    Whatever - you haven't lost an argument or conceeded a point to anyone that I can remember.

    yeah...but as far me and other customers go as far as E* "survival" goes...I could care less...i want to receive available HD channels....E* knew this was coming and hasn't told us squat...besides "those channels arn't in HD"......really?

    Moving the cheese again ... can't win the point that you claimed so you move on to a different attack.
    I try not to lose arguments ... but I have lost a couple over time.

    BTW: :welcome_s: ... lots of posts for your first day here? Should I know you? :)

    E* has been consistent in adding more customers than they lose ... net growth ... You may not be an E* customer for long, but someone will take your place and likely bring a friend.

    lol..no you shouldn't know me...just an annoyed E* customer who can't get answers from E*. I know they will "probably" add the channels...its just when. I'm one of those people who can't stand to watch SD channels anymore....so it bugs me to know I can be watching the channels I like...but yet I can't

    Is there a reason why a supposedly happy DirecTV would be spending so much time in a Dish forum? Maybe there's nothing good to watch on all those new channels?

    Seriously.. I find it increasingly amazing and annoying that some folks want to stir up trouble when there really is nothing to be stirred.

    Yes there is BTW. And every time one of us makes a good point, the stock answer is why would a DirecTV sub post in a DISH thread. Just read post 37 and how foolish it is - I felt the need to give some correct info.

    I assure you people from your side post daily in the DirecTv forums as well.

    Oh - were you lost in the DirecTV forum when you made this post?

    Really? I have not seen that "stock answer" in a while. Perhaps D* subs are not making any points? :)

    Here is a gentle reminder ...
    Most E* customers are happy with their service ... price and channel selection.
    Those that are unhappy really don't need anyone to tell them to be unhappy.

    People also shoot people every day, but it doesn't make me feel like I need to go do it.

    I see Dish people in DirecTV forums too... and I don't understand that either.

    I also don't feel the need to go "correct" people in a DirecTV forum even if I read something there.

    What's the point?

    look above - I have shown that you DO go and post in the DirecTv threads when you feel you want to.

    I never said I didn't post in the DirecTV forum.

    'Course if you're going to stalk my posts and try to catch me in something... I wish you'd also dig up my various posts where I question Dish and comment negatively about them. I am sure you will find me saying more bad things about Dish than I've said about DirecTV.

    As for the specific link above.. I still think it would be funny if Dish made DirecTV look silly just as DirecTV has made Dish look silly in the past when mocking the Dish ads about "Better TV for all".

    The thread was about DIRECT 4TH WAVE...and the question was what do we think of it...

    Well how about the fact that there are also E* customers that are pissed off?

    James you sound like E* customer support...."oh well we could give a crap iof you leave...someone else will come along"....again...GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! Sure it was easy to do that because D* had to play catch up...now it looks like E* needs to play catch up...but we don't know...cuz charlie don't seem to care enough let us know anything...so if thats the continued attitude...i guarantee E* will be losing a lot more than a few customers...it will get old real quick.

    I'm happy and satisfied and have more than enough on E* to keep me happy. Unfortunately, there's nothing on right now that I want to watch. :)

    texaswolf, I don't speak for E* ... I'm just another guy on the internet with an opinion.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with people entering any forum to get information. It's unfortunate that some people make ridiculous or incorrect statements and people try to clarify or question to make the information more meaningful. Seems ok to me. I have an E ticket which allows me to ride all the rides. :)

    i understand..and i'm just another disgruntled E* customer...but for those of you that don't find it a big deal that E* doesn't carry SCI FI HD, or FX HD, ect. ect. ect.....it is a big deal to the (i"m sure) millions of E* customers that do like those channels...especially since other people are enjoying favorite shows in HD, and they can not. I say millions.....guessing....since shows like BSG, Stargate, Nip Tuck, Rescue Me are on those channels and highly acclaimed and watched shows.....and only on D*...those shows are in HD

    Alas, this thread has strayed too far off topic and too unlikely to return. So I have closed it.

    My only editorial: DIRECTV and Dish network are both good companies, both will likely survive, we all benefit from their efforts to bring more HD into our homes.

    Cheers,
    Tom
