    I wonder how the numbers would look if Dish split out the DBS side of the business from the SlingTV side?

    I've long ago given up giving the 'analyst' bunch any credence. It is so common for the analysts to be wrong about their guesswork that it is nearly expected. I remember the analysts a bit back bitching when Apple had a bang up financial report (as usual), but was less than the backroom guessers thought it should be.

    I put them right up there with movie critics!

    Yeah... you're awesome, but I thought you should be REALLY awesome, so you fail!

    That's kind of how the analysts seem to "see" things sometimes.

    Dish is still making a lot of money. Nearly 14 million subs is not bad. Sure it could be better, but I don't see Dish going out of business anytime soon.
