    Looks can be deceiving... :)

    There were reports that the option to opt out of anonymous data collection wasn't working, people couldn't downgrade services, and of course remote booking issues. So at a glance, everything may appear the same, but diving in and actually checking out specific features may reveal what has changed ...

    I just used the automated contact form on the website (probably worth another post). I don't remember them having the fuzzy text, make sure you're not a spam bot, type these words before submiting box. Just one of the many small little things.

    Just noticed that my Sunday Ticket isn't showing up as being an active subscription on the programming page.

    Not sure if that is good or bad at this point - :)

    Apparently it's more than just the website. The can't activate new receivers either. The CSR said they are updating their whole operating system.

    I just had an install, and the said it would be 2 more hours before they can sent the authorization to the box.

    Oh well, It's been 6 days without TV, what's a couple more hours?:lol:
