    Dish Network has a presence in the "Central Plaza" at CES this year. That the parking lot for NAB and other smaller shows.

    Dish is partnered with Winegard to show a huge RV with 4 large HD screens tied to a Dish receiver. One of the screens is above the driver, and will operate while the vehicle is driven. (The RV also has a fridge, a washer/drier, a fireplace, and sleeps 4-6.)

    I asked a guy with a Dish badge about the free pay channels we're going to get along with the rate increase. He said he heard we'd get three months of Showtime and Playboy. I wouldn't rely on that.

    Anyway, Dish was promoting the Pay-As-You-Go plan for RV owners. Nothing new there.

    I believe with DirecTV you only can get HD when you are stationary. Dish HD works when you are actually on the road and moving.
