    I agree 100% Speed and SciFi were the ones for me, there are 3 or 4 others I occasionally watch and a couple more that I watch if I have nothing else to do. Thats it. There is no way I can watch 70 channels, let alone 100 or 150!

    I don't care who has more...I can only watch one channel at a time. :)

    Dish lost me years ago when they decided not to offer my locals in HD.

    I like it when D and E* push each other because we as customers win :) But I also like truth in advertizing and I think E* has missed the boat this time :raspberry

    Well unless E* is going to launch 3 satellites and have a total of 5 HD satellites.I don't think D* subscribers need to worry about who the Leader of HD is going to be.;)

    "Don't worry,can't you see.The leader in HD will be D*".:)

    Well Directv has been the leader at my house for several years - and will continue to be. I don't really care about "my guide is bigger than yours". They can enjoy all the WhatChannelHD?, NeverHeardOfHD, and PottedCactusHD channels they want. Directv already has more than I can watch now - and the list will be complete for me after Spike ( love those Bond marathons ) and the rest of the Discovery channels.

    This has nothing to do with E* pushing D*. This has to do with Echostar maintaining their customer base until they can get the bandwidth they need....

    I posted this back in another thread...
    Dish already states comparable HD offerings (this one from coverage of their addition of TBS-HD)

    To the consumer that does not investigate further - that lineup looks to be on par with Directv.

    Excluding the keyword "national"

    Agreed! Now, it's not about quantity, it's all about viewing quality. Do you have what I want to watch, with a clear and uninterrupted feed, and is it at a price that I can afford, without having to use an abacus to total up all of the tid-bit add ons for this, that and the other? :grin:

    By the way, where is NHL Network D*?:confused:

    Same argument, different day, different thread. I wish the self-proclaimed elitists who continue to say the same thing would be more original in their thoughts and comments. If we have to continue to plow through the same garbage in every thread at least say something new for a change.

    It would be quite easy for D* to build a channel matrix that showed clearly what channels are national, region specific, sports etc.

    After the "NFL 24x7" campaign, none of Dish's gutter-marketing campaigns surprise me anymore.

    Let's see ...

    • HBO, Max, Starz, Showtime, TMC ... check

      USA (for L&O: Criminal Intent) ... check

      Sci-Fi (for Battlestar Galactica) ... check

      NFL Network ... check

      CNN ... check

      Sunday Ticket in MPEG-4 ... NOT !!!

    My only real gripe is that NFL:ST HD channels are not mapped over to MPEG-4. As things stand now, many of them have two games so the second game often starts late if the first runs long. I believe that will be fixed next season.
