    No the issue is you Guys can't handle the fact that D* hasn't done Squat except raise prices for the Choice, Choice Extra,and Choice Ultimate Subscriber.

    I know your in tight with D*, but I'm not the only one Questioning the Lack of Base Pack HD addtions, Its only Premiums, at a Premium price.

    You guys and D* just goes around Blowing Smoke up everyones ,you know what, with that "HD coming Soon" card.

    Again the High end customer is served, and the low end customer pays for it.

    HD channel debate rule #1. - Channels I don't get or like don't count when counting channels.

    All providers raise prices once a year. Ask anyone. It's to fight their churn rates. Fortunately, D*'s was low last year.

    More HD is coming "soon", so settle down.

    Yeah that's why I left out the 3D channels, since 99.99% of people can't watch them. :eek2:

    Premier has had it's price raised in the last 4 years. So what if they cater to high end subs? It works! Sports in HD is their bread and butter...it better get better treatment.

    You act as if we Premier subs should feel guilty. Privileged we're not. We're paying $114.99 a month for everything we get. There are no freebies for us (free Starz, Showtime or HBO previews) like everyone else gets. You want something then pay for it like we do. :rolleyes:

    No one is denying there's a big lack in basic HD, but to claim it's been neglected for 4 years is silly.

    Nope you don't have to feel guilty, Just don't act like the Choice Extra subscriber should be happy with what they got.

    Cause a number of them arent happy with the lack of HD they have been getting.

    I proved they've catered to both basic and premium customers in the last 4 years just about equally. What evidence do you have to support your claim they only care about premier subscribers?

    Um, lets just say if I called 900 different people, and they all said that they were contemplating suicide, I'd be very worried about that population of 300 million. Lets just say if each call was independent and randomly selected (e.g. Bernouli Trial), the majority of those 300 million people will be contemplating suicide.

    On the other had, if I put up a web page and asked people to reply if they were contemplating suicide, and 900 people repliedd, I'd need to know a little more before I made some sort of conclusion about the results.

    However, if I know some information about the 900 people who responded, I might be able to make some quite valid inferences about the number of people contemplating suicide.

    So, the poll of DBS Talk member can be used to gain some information about the desires of the D* subscriber base. My guess would be that the top 10 DBS Talk poll results will include all 5 of the top 5 of the general public, given the strength of the responses.

    Thats all here say.

    People who work for D* claim stuff all the time that never happen.

    Not to point the finger at sateracer, He's been great!

    But some of you need to stop pointing the finger at him everytime he claims something.

    He can be wrong, you could stop forcing pressure on him every chance you get.

    And by defending sateracer , when he doesn't need to be defended, Just puts pressure on him to deliver something he has no control over.


    We know who he is, We don't need to be reminded ever second.
