    John Oliver took two good jabs at ATT last night. I guess those who don't have HBO didn't get to see it.. ;-( Unfortunately, since the whole context that led to both comments was political, I can't really describe them any better than a dig at ATT CS wait times and one at poor signals.

    I read on another site that that AT&T wants Dish to pay for a 30% subscriber base, rather than the 20% that Dish currently has. If this is true, how can Dish increase the 10%, by giving HBO away or at the discounted rate? What does Dish pay AT&T for each subscriber? Dish is not in the business to lose money.

    If that is true, I wouldn't be surprised if Dish told them "don't let the door hit you on the way out. We don't need your programming tHAT badly..."

    For people that like to watch Bill Maher, you can watch full episodes of his show on youtube via your Hopper. One less thing you need to pay HBO for.
