    i'm thinking of switchign to dirrect tv as it seems there getting more hd channels and are telling us what hd channels are coming available to service, as in dish network they wont say a word.

    So what you guys think I should do? Direct TV or stay with dish network?

    DIRECTV is very committed to bringing a ton more HDs on line. They've put up one satellite and are putting up two more for this purpose.

    I mean no slight to dish network, but I'm not aware of any plans they have to add channels as aggressively. They have had the lead in the past but it seems DIRECTV is determined to have it in the future.

    Dish and DTV are headed in 2 very different directions. Dish is determined to get the whole world hooked up with free DVR's and DTV wants everyone on their HD subscriptions. Different strokes for different folks.

    If you are a hockey fan and want the NHL Center Ice package then stay with Dish. They offer way more than DirecTV does for hockey.

    I've always been leary of Dish because of all the patent infringement type lawsuits other companies bring against them, like the current one from Tivo. I've always thought of them as a gimmicky or fly-by-night type of company. I just get a bad vibe for whatever reason.
