Around here, there are people switching from Dish to DirecTV, because when their satellite got the "electrical issue" local HD channels were moved to a satellite a lot of customers can't see and Dish won't give them that equipment.
I think DirecTV will gain more Dish subs than Dish gets DirecTVs, more affected by the Dish situation.
"Electrical issue"??? I can just hear Charlie and Jim explaining that
on the Chuck Chat, complete with the pained expressions on the faces in the peanut gallery!
Anyway, Fox 28 Spokane is back up on DirecTV. I'll bet Northwest's local Superbowl advertisers had something to do with this.
According to this letter from the head honcho at Northwest
, they want 60 cents per sub per month. Probably something like 40 cents more than everybody else.
Edit: Make that 90 cents per sub per month.
