There are numbers the Fool is missing regarding Dish. You really have to evaluate Charlie's investment portfolio to really understand the whole Dish/Echostar picture.
And throwing Comcast in there is truly mixing apples and lasagne. Comcast is a media conglomerate. It owns NBCU and Xfinity, both of which have multiple divisions, of which only one is cable television. I pay xfinity for my Internet service and through Dish for my NBC broadcast channel and cable channels like USA, CNBC, etc., plus for Olympic coverage,
So far Dish has not paid to produce content, but rather to deliver content. It's a single mission.
