    I don't remember writing anything like that.

    Fine. Let people who joined because of the ads cancel without any penalty. Afterall they didn't cause those "issues".

    E* woul dhave to pay me 20$ a month (probably a lot more) to watch Foxnews or CNN ;-)

    I'd not care much until something I really wants gets added - like Comedy Central or BBC HD.

    For all those saying $29.99 is a great deal so we should just suck it up - let me remind you - even if you are a free marketing ideologue . Free market doesn't work unless you have demanding customers with no entry/exit barriers. A duopoly is anyway not a free market.

    Glad I came back to read this thread. I didn't realize I get foxnews in SD. I don't care! Its better than CNN in HD!!! I can watch SD and save me $20.00 a month additional to get it in HD along with Fox Business.

    Happy camper (I have absolute)

    "... and I would give ten CNN's for a Foxnews ... "
    Are you kidding me? The reverse makes more sense to me!
    But I bet you also listen to Rush Limbaugh ...that explains it!

    It was the day before they dropped Absolute that I signed up (less than 6 months ago!) I really don't think $29.99 is that great a deal, since it was what got me to switch from TWC to Dish, and with what I thought was a 2 year "contract" for ALL their HD content; yes I thought it was a good deal at the time. So now they held off until Feb. 1st to introduce any additional HD content to "force" anyone that wants it to upgrade to basically what I was paying for TWC is a complete scam IMO.

    I do like Dish better and probably won't "switch back" until a bunch of other HD gets added (or doesn't in my case)... if they are going to "bait" you, they should at least honor things for a year (of a 2 year "contract"). If I wasn't a reader here, how was I supposed to find out about any Feb. 1st cut-off in the first place? I could only go with what the CSR was telling me...

    Talking politics is a no no. :nono2:
    It will cause your post to be removed especially if you are a fan of the FNC. ;)It also will cause a no response to future post.
    There is a easy "work around" for that issue. :kisshead:
    Just kidding. :backtotop

    Let me see $29.99 for ALL the HD channels Dish has at the end of 2008 (except premium movie channels of course), is NOT a good deal - are you out of your mind!!!

    Well, switch to TurboHD Platinum and pay twice as much for the same channels then - Charlie will be glad to take your extra cash.
