I would agree with that. D* claims they are looking out for their customers by keeping their bill from going up. But if the things I most want to watch --Lakers basketball and USC football -- are not available to me on D*, than my interests are not being served very well, no matter what my monthly bill is. Last week's Cal game was the first USC game in 11 years that was not available on my TV. Sure, the Pac-12 shares some of the blame, but it does feel as if something has changed at D* -- and not for the better.
