Dish Network has a presence in the "Central Plaza" at CES this year. That the parking lot for NAB and other smaller shows.

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.

Not new for Dish customers either, so....what's your point?

"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 believe with DirecTV you only can get HD when you are stationary. Dish HD works when you are actually on the road and moving.
