    I’ve made it this long, I can make it 6 more days. DIRECTV rules! Glad I didn’t jump ship. :grin:

    Ditto!

    Each has their plusses and minuses.... and each is dependent upon your personal preference.

    I'm happy with DirecTV, and hopefully they will offer a more competitive programming lineup with Dish later this Summer... in which case, I'll be even happier. :)

    Fanboys are fanboys, and need no further reason.

    The single most reliable way to tell your service provider or hardware provider just did something good for you is when the competitors' uninvited fanboys start swarming your threads with "it's just a fleshwound!" claims.

    It's more reliable than robins heralding spring.

    Oh relativism, yuck! Everything is good, but in a different way. Nothing is truly bad or good. Nuts! There are standards; some things suck absolutely. We try to sort out which is which by bringing together people of different opinions and letting them argue. See who makes the best case. What is this fear of conflict? What's wrong with Dish supporters coming here to argue? It's great! Bring them on. The more diverse the views we have here, the better the chance for truth to emerge.

    Wrong! The official motto of the Cubs is "Winning is for Losers."

    I say this as one who has suffered from Cubs addiction for more than 50 years.

    In my spare time, I root for the Giants, whose motto, according to Duane Kuiper is: "Giants baseball -- torture!"

    Some things absolutely suck! I'm just saying this isn't one of those scenarios...

    I find Dish's programming lineup to be superior to DirecTV's, but I have no interest in Dish's downrezzed and heavier compressed channels, nor do I have any interest in paying the heavier satellite bill that I would be saddled with if I was at Dish Network.

    That being said, I know some people who, for them, Dish Network is the best satellite provider.

    Relativity is everything! ;)

    Both channels are already in HD. Dish has FSC and TWC has FSP. There hasn't been any announcement about DirecTV carrying either though.

    All I know is things have come a LONG way since my first HDTV in 2001 when it was some HBO movies and the same programs looping over and over on HDNet from my $600 RCA DTC-100.

    I love it and glad I have been along for the ride...

    This place adds to the fun! Just seeing that Will Ferrell mug cracks me up. :lol:
