    "Better TV for All" compain was launched on Tuesday, Aug 16 - "Better Price, Better Service, Better Technology by Far"
    (Price advantage, Better DVR technology for the Best price, etc etc)

    "Does your TV suck" advertizing etc - "My TV sucks" commercials etc.. (.. "but her TV doesn't sucks" (hehe) - She has DISH Network" )

    hmm.. too much sucking going on in those commercials... - creative (Jim said), etc

    People understood the humor..and really enjoying this ("Does your TV suck?", etc )

    New Radio ads in my markets (again about sucking.. TV sucking hard.. what's that sucking sound, etc etc .. - But of course - DISH Network does NOT suck!)

    For some it doesn't just suck (the tv) - it also stinks! :D

    they think this promotion will be a blockbuster .. they will make it as clear as possible..

    New DISH logo...

    New DVR commercial (..with some sucking in it going on one more time) ;-)

    Call Your Dishnetwork dealer / Retailer for the latest Deals and Specials (for new customers, etc)

    Don't put up with TV that sucks .. Call DISH.. they are waiting for your call!
    ---

    suckfreetv.com (New site / microsite - launched by DISH .. as a promo)
    redesign DISH's van compain (looks nice - Better TV for ALL - on them)

    (new gorilla tactics marketting basically .. nowadays it is a NEED - to win the hearts of customers, etc)

    Appreciation for the customer compain(s) :

    Blast Echostar 10 compain.. Lucky winner will have his/her name on the thingy that will go to space.. and some other prices... (hehe - showing commercial about this one - "reach for the stars.. better tv for all - one giant leap"

    PPV for 99 cents - Wedding Date (for only .99 cents)
    (they are excited about that - supposed to be great movie - to celebrate DISH's 25'th aniversary)

    Club Dish amendments (as appreciation again) - something about "get 25 bucks extra on the first bill" for new customers.. and i think the "sposor" will get 25 bucks extra also (as a gift certificate or something like that) .. (to celebrate 25th DISH's aniversary of course also) :D

    Club DISH DHA-18 .....

    some promos are extended until Nov 30th, and January (example .. chit i forgot .. they are talking too fast.. but Big Dish exchange is one of them)

    Phone calls..

    some Retailer is complaining about the cost of fuel nowadays.. and saying there is no way they can afford some service calls for 19 bucks or so (or something like that)

    at the Chat they also said ..that they had some "internal issues" with Club Dish program (some people were trying to beat the system and take advantage of it) .. - so they had to clean it up somewhat..and change it somewhat.. making it now simpler and more fair to all......

    just came from work,

    thx. for editing whatever you had there BFG (didn't see it.. was working .. lol) with "nvmd." .. cuz unless you changed your record in whatever you were saying, your old records were getting kinda old by now (aka. You made yourself .. and how you feel (about me, etc) crystal clear on numerous occasions already) :)

    No offence...

    P.S. You could have also just deleted that post above (instead of leaving that eye catcher "nvmd.") .. There is a Delete (post) button there in EDIT (on top there) .. Did you know? ;)

    Peace....

    ?? I honestly do know the answer to that. Perhaps it moved with the posts that I moved to the other thread. I do not have the before and after numbers sorry.
