Discovery HD is $7.99/mo and the module is on promo right now for $49. Not that I have any plans of buying either... When the 6000 came out it was much cheaper than the D* solutions, even with the OTA module, it was cheaper than the D* STBs. For the most part the 6000 was on the low side of the price scale until this year. That being said, yeah, Dish is not the HD leader. In fact no major company seems to be. Just some smaller local outfits here and there.
