    No problem. It got ugly for a while. Don't they all? Haha. I was just concerned it would start over again here.

    ...or less based on their lackluster performance compared to DirecTV.

    A) Sorry pal, you're stalking the wrong guy, never posted that before.

    B) But I am flattered you took the time and effort to go OT and insult me personally!

    c) Wow, there are TWO witty guys in this thread! Awesome!

    They have what D* can't get. I know, they don't have NFL and all that junk but D* bought those rights so E* can't get it so you really can't compare that. All the others are there for whatever provider wants them. Going strong since 1996, not to lackluster in my books.

    Another baseless assumption from Swanni. It ain't money...it's terms...such as authentication. He is the bottom-feeder of internet bloggers.

    Its interesting that these channels won't take D* money. I guess authentication doesn't affect E* or c*? Not being a smart a**, but just trying to figure it all out. Thanks.

    Seems to me that with technology, Charlie just does it, uses it to attract customers, then says to the industry, "Sue me." Which it does, which takes years, during which E* makes money, and then settles for what appears to be a drop in its considerable bucket. Result: tech advancement, lotta new customers, win-win. Ballsy business model, IMHO. :D

    Finally, I agree with him:
    Although, he's totally wrong about BBCA being a popular channel.

    Good article, thanks for sharing. Just adds to my frustration with the lack of progress of DirecTVs basic HD rollout.

    Source please. :D

    The problem here is we ALL assume too much. I haven’t seen one shred of evidence that DIRECTV is interested in adding new basic HD. In fact, for close to two years DIRECTV has been proving my point. Swanni is spot on.

    Look at it this way, which is more likely:
    1. All basic channels owners are conspiring to deny DIRECTV new basic HD.
    2. DIRECTV has not been interested in adding basic HD for close to 2 years now.

    Occam’s razor baby! :p

    Neither. Some people get it and some don't. Some simply do not understand, while others refuse to.

    Longer than that. 10 basic HD additions in 28 months. I stopped counting at 1/1/2009.

    It's 2 years now? First, it was no basic HD in 10 months because saying 11 would've included the group added. Now, it's 2 years. You spin better than DIRECTV's PR and marketing departments. :lol:

    Except that he's lost more customers than he has gained in three of the last four quarters. This past quarter, he had a small gain.
