Dish shows off in CES parking lot
Posted 07 January 2011 - 02:15 PM
Dish is partnered with Winegard to show a huge RV with 4 large HD screens tied to a Dish receiver. One of the screens is above the driver, and will operate while the vehicle is driven. (The RV also has a fridge, a washer/drier, a fireplace, and sleeps 4-6.)
I asked a guy with a Dish badge about the free pay channels we're going to get along with the rate increase. He said he heard we'd get three months of Showtime and Playboy. I wouldn't rely on that.
Anyway, Dish was promoting the Pay-As-You-Go plan for RV owners. Nothing new there.

"Belligerent and numerous."
Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

I have been watching HD on Directv while camping for over 5 years, this is not New for Directv customers. NFL and College football, Indy race on memorial day...
I believe with DirecTV you only can get HD when you are stationary. Dish HD works when you are actually on the road and moving.
