    Subscribed to Dish Network in October of 1997. I had a model 4000 and a model 1000.

    Replaced the model 1000 with a DishPlayer (7100) in 1999. Upgraded the DishPlayer to a 30 Gig hard drive almost immediately after PVR features were activated.

    Dumped Dish Network for DirecTV (and two Hughes DirecTiVOs) in February of 2002.

    E* since April 2001. Very seriously considering adding D*, but will probably wait for the merger situation to conclude one way or another.

    I purchased a DTV RCA model in 1995 or 1996. I am not exactly sure. It was the same year the MLB players were on strike. I switched to Dish in 2000, but I kept the DTV unit active to get MLB EI and NBA LP. I will probably drop Dish later this year, and I will drop DTV and go to digital cable if Charlie Ergen becomes the dictator of a merged company.
