    What is a good excuse for you? None of us are owed any excuse. My motto remains the same...If you're unhappy with what a company has to offer, then take your money elsewhere where you'll be happy.

    I'm reminded of the past in which people who were unhappy with the way the country was being run, were told that they should leave the country. I'm also reminded of the old saying in which people state that if you vote, you're entitled to complain.

    I pay my "hefty" bill every month, so I feel that I'm entitled to complain.

    NOTE: I know I somewhat brought it up, but I tried to keep it as generic as possible, so let's PLEASE go no farther into politics on this thread. THANKS!

    I've already said I like Directv and have no plans to leave. If you would have been paying attention, I already said I don't understand leaving a provider over a few channels. You take the best there is in your area, and to me, thats Directv. I guess we should all stick our heads in the sand like some of you (for obvious reasons), and not speak out.

    Satracer is a great asset here, but if you use the same tired line all the time, you are going to catch flack. He'd be best to not say anything. We, as subs, should also not look the other way, and make sure he's knows what we are unhappy about. If we never complained about the service, the assumption would be all of us are happy.

    Some people are too simple to understand the difference between wanting the service improved upon, and being unhappy with the service.

    Exactly. Telling a Voter/Taxpayer to stop bitching and leave is a Zombie response and, in the end, helps no one. Plenty of folks on these forums see nothing but fields of roses with these providers, but that doesn't mean we should not speak out.

    With HBO on the go coming to ipad for cable subs, Epix to Netflix, Cox,ATT, Fios, TW all introducing some sort of VOD/Live straming to the ipad, and dish pushing it's sling abilities, I am really curious what D* has up it's sleeve.

    I'm ready to start watching my D* programming on the go. When is it coming?

    For the record, I didn't mean anything negative towards Sigma1914...

    My point was simply that when I don't like something about a service that I pay (considerable money) for each month, I'm entitled to speak out when I'm not happy about it.

    Yes, I prefer Dish Network's channel lineup, but if I were to switch, I would LOSE MRV, I'd lose ABC Family, DisneyXD HD, a more well rounded locals package, resolution, and gain a HEFTIER bill and more compression.

    I'd prefer to wait it out with DirecTV whose service I prefer overall, and if I feel like venting in the meantime, I'm OK with that.

    Sorry I don't remember all your posts here. You'd think that with your elitist attitude that you're that important, but you're not. :)

    Like who? What reasons? Please share.

    Do you realize all of us satellite nerds have zero impact on what channels get added? I doubt Satracer & Earl are going to meetings saying, "Boy oh boy, you lawyers better work out carriage deals because those guys at dbstalk are furious at the lack of AMC HD & BBCA HD!"

    Again, elitist attitude.

    Even the Dish folks have been singing that song repeatedly over and over about the whole Disney/EPN contract dispute.... :lol:

    Let me rephrase that ...

    With the way DBSTalk members have been complaining about his prior posts, if I were Satracer I'd be hiding too.

    Please be kind. Accept the messages that people can post here but don't get personal.

    As a general rule, I'm constantly reminded every day of how stupid people can be, so I don't really need to watch a TV program to prove it to me. If I did, I might watch "The Real Housewives of Hahira, Georgia"... :rolleyes:

    To be fair, I don't think he meant anything negative towards Satelliteracer (I wouldn't have laughed if I had thought so), but rather as a joke (one I personally thought was very funny), and was in no way personal.

    I don't think Satelliteracer is "hiding." I think he has a job to do, hopefully one that includes trying out some new tactics to get us those few last channels we all want.
