    I don't understand the 'as planned' part. Was an unplanned 30 day extension part of the plan?

    It was ahead of schedule, now it's on schedule "as planned."

    A watched satellite never moves. Why aren't any of you out celebrating Easter with your families? Some things are more important than TV!

    Thanks for your reply. It would be nice to see that schedule which I know we will never be able to do. There is one thing that seems to indicate to the contrary though. The advertisements that originally talked about new availability in April have mysteriously dropped the April timeframe.

    Basing your position on ads was your first mistake.

    Read the FCC documents on post 1 and 2 of this thread, they're all public record so anyone can.

    I am sure the 'plan' is changing on a daily basis. So Doug's statement is always true no matter how much things change.

    I understand that things are changing. Doug's statement said 'as planned'. That is past tense. It seems to imply that a plan was in place at some point in the past and things are going according to that plan. It does not have the sense of a plan that is changing day to day.


    As for Coca-cola's note to read the first two posts for the timeframe, the one that stands out is the 'extension' request. That seems to kick the time schedule down the road a bit.

    I'm sure everything is going to be fine with the satellite, I just dislike spin from wherever it comes, government, church or satellite companies. Clearly an extension was asked for and it seems not to have been part of the original plan.

    I would say everyones.

    Wasn't it D's intention to have it operational and transmitting more HD before the end of 2009? This is going back a couple years, but it does seem there have been a lot of delays.

    Wasn't the plan for the NASA Mars Rovers to be only 90 days? And they went for 6 more years?

    Couldn't it be a good thing that there has been an extension of testing?

    Or maybe those spreading fear and don't know jack are panicking, rather than, listening to those who have direct info and contacts. :rolleyes:

    While I agree with most of your post, to say "Some things are more important than TV" borders on blasphemy. :lol:
