Not my intention at all. Your statement here is, IMO, a weird interpretation/reaction to what I wrote which says more about you than it does about me. Go check out what DISH is offering new subscribers who sign up via their website. No discounts, not even $10-20 off, on the regular monthly price. Only thing you get is a price lock for the duration of your 2-year contract, plus three months of free premiums (not including HBO or Cinemax, which isn't available at all) and a free Google Home Mini. You're citing a small pool of anecdotal evidence from a website biased in favor of pro-DTV opinion. Maybe take a look at the actual subscriber numbers that AT&T has been reporting for DTV over the past few years. Pretty dismal.
