    I cancelled Directv and got my final bill today, on the very back page it says Its not to late to stay with Direct. Here are a few of the inaccurate statements:

    1. Dish doesn't have MLB network in HD (Not true)
    2. DVR scheduler from cell phone etc (every major provider has that)
    3. The most HD channels (not true)

    Also it says that they are adding 30 additional HD channels soon. Anyone have any idea of what those 30 are? Or is this form so old that those 30 have already been added

    Don't know about #1, and #3 is debatable, but how is #2 inaccurate?

    I'm going with old. Before September 2011, dish didn't have MLB Network. We know of 5 new HD channels coming in the next week or so.

    I got my final bill the other day too. I noticed that about the MLB Network too. I do wish DISH had the alternate channel for MLB Network.

    #2 is inaccurate because it says only Directv offers the product. Not true at all.

    Your post doesn't say that, and since I don't have the piece of paper you're referring to, I can only go by what you post.

    Dish does have the alternate MLB Network. It's channel 5451 I think.

    This is actually true. With all the sports and premiums, DirecTV outclasses any other provider in number of HD channels delivered.

    They just are being outclassed by some providers in the *BASIC* section of HD channels. Although they are taking steps to remedy that.
