Nice questions, even if quite of a few of them don't matter as a subscriber.
Here's questions I'm much more concerned with:
1. Which one has the channels I want in HD?
2. Which one is least costly for my installation?
3. Is the picture quality good? Yeah, I know D* has blah-blah so much better HD. My eyes don't see much difference, and that really is what matters to me.
All the rest is fodder for discussion and contention!!
Both companies are good, both are profitable and both have different views about how to approach the satellite TV market.
