    Ahhhh...let Dish have its moment - it will be very shortlived. Once D*TV blows by them with their HD content offering in the next 10 days or so, no one will even know who Dish was... :lol:

    I certainly hope people aren't "upset" about D*s HD not being lit up yet - there are far more things to be upset about than that.

    I kind of like the "E* leaves D* in the dust" press releases (or whatever form those announcements are taking). Makes it all the funnier when the D* announcememnts tout 10-20 channels at a time than just one here and one there. Yes, that's more than D* has done to date, but patience, my pretties, patience! :)

    But the realy bad news for DISH is that not only is Echostar-11 delayed until next year, but as a result of yesterdays launch failure of JSAT from Baikonur, the OTHER sat that DISH had planned to have launched this year (AMC-14) will also be pushed back - 6 months delay from December is a pretty good guesstimate.

    So - it looks like some of those announced Charlie plans for 2007 could be pushed back as much as a year now.

    Relax

    Take a deep breath.

    Count to 10.

    Look at the calendar.

    See how close we are.

    See how far we have come to get here.

    Go outside, be happy that there is no snow to shovel yet.

    When the snow comes, at least for some of us, be glad you can go back to the house, or apartment, or condo or whatever, and tune into 100 HD channels on DIRECTV. :lol:

    I really think we should get back on topic, but I can't leave this one: As a loyal D* subscriber, I'm *happy* that DISH is putting pressure on D*. I want DISH to have more and more and more and more HD channels. Why? It is good for D* subscribers. More competition means more HD for all. So long as we're not talking about exclusive DISH channels, it is terrific when DISH gets more HD channels. In fact, if we're really thinking about this correctly, we should be rooting for DISH to get as many HD channels as fast as possible.

    (Why are people getting upset/inflamed/excited about the "race"? Its all good.)

    By "lit up", do you mean that you're getting an actual signal strength reading instead of all zeros ?
