This shows great parenting. Keep up the good work.
I'm hopeful the Pac-12 national network will be added to Directv on 8/15. And hopefully the six regionals as well.
I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but the San Diego Padres are supposed to be starting a 20-year contract with Fox Sports to broadcast all of its games starting this season. Fox Sports San Diego should be launching by opening day. This will eliminate the Cox Cable/MLB EI issue and should allow those that have D* in San Diego to finally see those games (assuming D* picks up the RSN).
Count the number of clicks required to perform this maneuver in the commercial and then how many you actually do in your own home. This is a valuable feature, but the commercial uses a bit too much creative license in showing how the service works.
MY GOD! Commericials actually do this! I am shocked.
I'll give you that.
Let's see: In Room A: 1 to 3 clicks (either stop, pause, or record and all the validations about recording if you press record). I won't count turning off the TV but I supposed you should do that too if no one is going to be left in the room.
Room B: Could vary if the show wasn't on the top of the list based on how you have it sorted, but it could be as low as 3 (list, select, resume).
Channel 643-1 has been listed for years but, as has been stated, nothing has ever aired on that channel.
Can someone clarify why the RSN alternate HD feeds are on a "-1" channel instead of being mapped to the same number as the low-def channel in the way most channels are (say, ESPN, to name an obvious example)? It prevents you from hiding the low-def duplicate in the program guide. It's not a "Big Deal" in the scheme of things, just an annoyance. But I'd rather put up with that annoyance than have to watch the periodic low-def feed for Caps games.
Unfortunately for me they added AMC after I left.
That's interesting. I'd like to know your trick. Nobody else can do it without going to the list, picking the title and then playing. All the guy in the commercial has to do is walk in the room and resume.
EDIT: I see mreposter said the same thing. So I think we can all agree it doesn't work like the commercial. I'm just trying to make the point that everybody is misleading to some degree, not just Dish.
Next thing you know, they will claim that having cable will destroy your life.
Advertising is supposed to make you want to know more, with the goal being you actually buy whatever is advertised. So distorting a fact or two is done all the time, Dish nor Direct is any more honest in their ads than the other.
For instance, one ad from D* talks about the 'tanking' Dish customer service rating and how Direct is #1 in that. But they don't mention that the %'s are very close and that both have numbers that aren't very good at all compared to many other companies. While the ad is 'mostly' true, it does stretch a point quite a bit.
Those ads have got to be the worst ones I've seen in a very long time.
I love the eye patch one.
How about 2 (list, play).
I think they're pretty funny and original. I was getting sick of all of the "celebrity endorsements".
Since the Dog Whisperer show has moved to Nat Geo Wild, we need this channel in HD now!
not all RSN / ALT feeds have all stuff in HD and for the out of market feeds (most of them are RSN remaps) have them as well (Some game feeds are only SD)
It takes an HD village.
I disagree. I think the intentional ridiculousness is quite amusing.
Don't you ever watch live sports?
YES!!!!!! It is about time, but better late than never. :icon_da:
A whole bunch of programming showing upcoming on 643-1 now. Wizards, Caps, college BB.
