Are you kidding? Have you read any of the Dish Network posts? They (Dish) are 100% fixated on the merger. Every sentence out of Charlie's mouth has the word merger in it. Dish is busy adding locals in markets where key politicians live, such as Tucson, Waco and Burlington, while hosing those in Memphis, Baltimore, and Columbus. Directv is still running their business the same as if there was no merer pending. International programming has always been a strong suit of E*, just as sports programming is a strong suit of D*. If D* doesn' t have the programming package you want, don't get it. It is the same as me getting E* and then pissing and moaning that they don't have NFLST. Pretty simple. Get the programming that meets your needs. Don't spread FUD, though.
