    I think I'm finally done with the chart for the night. :)

    Egads, I never realized how much more work I had to do for those blasted individual sat location charts! :)

    Anyway, Darkman, all the "special people" channels seem to be up there. At least the EPG stream has them there.

    See ya
    Tony

    Yeh those pirate tv channels from what darkman said are funny. Charlie must be laughing at pirates everyday so why not just step on there faces while he is at it. One thing I dont get is why would someone who is using a pirated box call dish and subscribe it. Its easier to just point an arrow on yourself and say hey look at me, im a pirate. Personally I would think its better to call dish and just become a brand new subscriber. They give you free receiver, free dish, free installation and after a year, you keep it again. Just makes no sense to subscribe equipment you already have.

    In any case.. i think it's nice of Charlie to offer, simplify this

    kinda with humor.. meanwhile advertising as well (for those who d be scared othewise to call DISH)

    kinda saying.. Hey.. call us.. and we'll have you off the hook kinda.. - you ll subscribe ..and be just as any other subscriber .. we will treat you wish same respect as we would anyone else (when you call to subscribe)

    actually .. kinda classy move from Charlie!
    My hat is off to him! ....
    Good move.. and with humor too..

    As nagravision 2 reported is very very secure.. - DISH will more likely get lots of new customers because of card swap.. regardless if one calls them because of this Video.. or if one calls them as a new customer (as you suggested above) ..and orders programming..
    Dish doesn't care basically.. they just want you as a subscriber..
    and lots of pirates have their dishes pointed already.. so no install is needed for them.. so...

    basically if one wants to call as a new customer.. it's his choice..
    But DISH is saying basically, at the same time.. for a paranoid hackers, those who might be scared - "We simplify things for you now.. - Call us.. subscribe.. and you are off the hook.. you ll just be another honest, paying customer..and we ll treat you with the same respect)

    Instead of cursing pirates..and preaching morals to them - Way to go DISH! - Good move, ...hehe ;)

    Well thats all fine and dandy, but I am just looking at it from another point of view. Them folks who are using the boxes can just sell them on ebay or wherever and make the money to pay for the dish they subscribe. If your going to pay for it, might as well have the latest equipment I say. Why would I want to use a model from 10 years ago when I can get a free 522 now?? Personally I think charlie thinks pirates are stupid idiots who don't know anything by showing those channels he is mocking them.

    Ok.. saw this posted elsewhere.. and figured to share it with you all..

    So maybe grab it .. while it's there .. - the actual "Pirate Video" from TV ... hehe:
    http://www.sendmefile.com/00017293

    Not too bad actually.. and not sure.. but maybe that new black and red dish's logo.. is somewhere there too (but not sure on that)

    In any case.. it's there now.. and downloaded it.. and have it on my HD now :)

    P.S. You saw it first at DBSTalk by the way.. (and where i saw it first .. is besides the point.. as far as this forum is concerned) :)

    Darkman, I downloaded the file and I watched it. The commercial kept saying if I am watching this channel than I am being accused of being a pirate. Brings me to 2 points.

    1. Since I downloaded it and watched it from the internet and not my dish, does that still mean I am a pirate? I think I may need to consult my lawyer on this.

    2. Well since the dude is acccusing me of being a pirate, I think I should take it literally. At Disneyland there is an attraction called Pirates of the Caribbean and they are looking for hired hands for the stunt show. So all I need is a to get am eye patch, a peg leg, and a talking bird on my shoulder. Hey if you can't beat the pirate, join them I say. :hurah: :hurah: :hurah:

    I downloaded the video from the above link and watched it.


    All's that I need to say is.

    "The winner for the academy award for best comedy is..... (rip) Dish Network!"

    The guy in the video sounds so sad. Its kind of funny. :D

    Note that the dish logo on the screen in the background goes OVER the black bar on the right of the screen. Apparently something they have superimposed. Cool video - and they are approaching it from a "you may not know it" perspective instead of a "you are comitting a crime and we will hunt you down" perspective.

    hehe .. just use common sense on this one:

    a) If you downloaded it from Internet ..and just watched it.. and you are NOT a hacker otherwise, then that does NOT make you a Pirate...

    b) If you downloaded it from Internet ..and just watched it.. and you ARE a hacker otherwise, then that DOES make you a Pirate...

    Was it just my system or was the video very choppy? Audio was fine but the video just jumped.
