    Carriage agreement is like that because Dish wanted it to be like that - atleast they didn't mind it to be like that. If they don't want it to be like that they can negotiate. Dish is not like a powerless individual - they have large legal department to take care of things like these.

    Anyway as I keep saying, a la carte is the solution to such stupidity. FCC should mandate a la carte.

    I wholeheartedly agree on both counts. In my past C-Band years, I just handpicked what I wanted - very simple, very fair.

    FCC mandates a la carte,- there's a whole lotta channels going bye-bye.

    I'd guess less than 100 might survive.

    I am sure you are probably right about that but, I also know that I watch way less than 100 channels on a regular basis. But, I might lose some that I like.

    That does not address bandwidth issues in streaming a quality HD picture. People can wish all they want, but internet streaming will not provide the same QUALITY as a sat/cable signal for a while. I am more concerned with picture quality than the convenience of having content available on the internet, and I refuse to watch content on my computer screen.

    You are in the minority and not Dish's average customer. Give everyone their local RSN like cable does to get people to subscribe. My son only subscribes to internet and he watches all his video from it, and OTA, on his 42" 1080p HDTV. He is the future and what a lot of young people are already doing.

    I was just told by a "Loyalty Specialist" that the TurboBronze package includes FoxNews HD and the Platinum add-on includes Fox regional sports by zip code. Further, if you sign-up for 24 months you get can get Platinum free for a year. That info seems to contradict what I read here.

    Where can I get a full list of what is included in each metal package? The web site seems to have only partial lists.
