Right minnow, and you DEMAND that PTV be given to you for free simply because YOUR sale price ran out, right? Let all the other folks who have been charged all along, continue to be charged for PTV right? Just give a freebie to you and the other folks whose deal is about to run out, right? Last I checked it didn't say the three year deal was conditional dependant upon Echostar providing you with bug free software... Your simply angry because you gotta pay for something that you had previously gotten free, that's all. Sure... that makes complete sense. PS... and again, I gotta ask... why did you keep the Dishplayer for four years if you felt it is, and always has been, such a bottom of the barrel piece of crap? Why argue to keep the fee free on a receiver you have undeniable utter hatred for?
