    With the PAC12 and BIG10 deals ironed out, what is left for Dish to get done to improve your customer experience?

    We can say AMC, for one.

    In my opinion, the really big enchilada hanging out there is the Disney mess. I would like ESPNU in HD, as well as the Disney 'family' (Disney, Disney XD, etc.) in HD.

    Any others that Dish should be working on?

    All my family needs (or wants) is the Disney channels in HD.

    I would pay $1 more a month for this, gladly.

    Why should I pay for Disney? Disney/ABC/ESPN are already the most expensive services.

    My personal "not usually in the discussion" channel that I'd like to see in NASA HD.

    I certainly have some interest in ESPN and Disney but there are plenty of people carrying those banners.

    the only "must have" channels for me are amcHD, espnUHD and nflnetwork... on at120. I understand it amc was on the at200 package before but hopefully a new deal would bring it to their lower package.

    MLB Extra Innings. I believe the original 7 year deal with D*, etc. is up for renewal in 2014.

    replace all the crapy news channels with porn, make people buy news ala carte. porn is useful info, news is all the opinions of fools. or maybe just bring back smithsonian ch. either way.

    I'd love to see Dish add both MBC and SBS (Korean Language channels). I'd be willing to to pay an upgraded package fee for them as well.

    This is especially true and necessary as my current Korean language channels (Tiger Pack) are now advertising (in the EPG) that I've lost 2 of the 8 channels that are (were?) in it as of last week: WOW-TV and ONGameNet. The package still shows them there, but the guide says they're gone effective 9/19...

    So, I've lost 25% of my channels any chance of my International Package bill going down 25%? - Didn't think so.

    The current Tiger Pack is 19.99, add these two channels for a "Tiger Plus Pack" at 24.99 and I'm there.

    A national CW affiliate in HD. The only CW in my market is a secondary channel that is not even carried by Dish. I'd qualify for superstations, but they are not in HD nationally, so they're a no-go for me.

    NASA HD, C-SPAN 1, 2, and 3, all in HD, and the superstation pack in HD. All RSN's in full-time HD. The MLB Extra Innings pack, in HD, and Disney Channel in HD and ABC Family Channel in HD. Me and RTV in HD (in case any of the old shows get remastered). CNN International in HD.

    I totally agree,with DirecTV adding more basic HD channels it's time for DISH to make their basic channel HD offerings better with even more HD channels.:)
