Kinda sad press conference so far. Spent more time talking about some lame video game league vs. anything actually related to DirecTV or HD.

It's sad that the video was messed up. Seems kind of lame for a broadcast company to not have quality videos to show :)

Not sure if the blogger was being overly critical though.

Nah, on Satguys he said "still talking about" the gaming league. So yea, they've been talking it up for over 5 minutes. Methinks they don't understand this isn't South Korea where gaming is the #1 thing to watch on TV. :D

He talks about how essentail the new H20 is to their stradagey, what a scary thought.


H20 or HR20?
And what is with the commentary... during the blogging? report what is said... then comment in the recap.

Is this the same guy that did the blog for the Dish Press Conference?

The byline says it is the same guy, but i'm not sure.

I was thinking the same thing. Leave your commentary for after the press conference. But, it is a blog, not a news article :scratchin

Satguys reporter did a better job describing the OnDemand stuff. It was the HR20 as the keystone to their future. The OnDemand actually sounds kinda cool. Looks like we may get to beta it this quarter yet.

As we have proven here... the Computer doesn't have to be ViiV. (discussion for another thread, another day)


The SAT2Go unit is the brown unit to the Right of the presenter.

Yeah I know, I just found it a little funny.

If that is the SAT2Go unit it looks a little bulky, but hard to tell from the picture.
