    This poll was started on 10/11, and now with the additions this week to D*'s lineup, the answer is definitely D*! But, the good part about this is it will push E* and Cable to step it up, and keep D* from resting on their arses........

    I went to sears today, and they had a big sign for dish saying in BOLD "DISH has the most HD channels"

    False advertising.

    I wonder where all the HD content is to go with all of these channels that DIRECTV has added.

    I wonder why it even matters? The channels are there, so that any HD content they have to offer will be seen on DirecTV. That's more than any other provider can say.

    I'm still unsure why all this matters to anyone anyway. Can someone explain it in a concise and meaningful way please?

    It matters if you were expecting 60+ channels of HD and you didn't get anywhere near that. It wasn't about adding channels by October so you would be ready for February 2008. That's kind of like counting mapdowns in your total number of channels.

    Anyone who was expecting the new simulcast channels to be 24x7 HD, or even close to it, is a moron. All you're doing is grabbing at straws to bash DirecTV. Your arguments are so insanely weak, it's not even funny anymore. DirecTV is doing everything in their power to advance the HD market. Only a true Dish fanboy such as yourself can bash them for carrying every HD channel the networks choose to put out.

    Actually, I haven often found Harsh to make a good point, even if he is a little "Harsh."

    But I think it is "Unduly Harsh" to slam D* for some of the channels' paucity of true HD. We have the channels, cost went up $4.99 at most, all the other providers are scrambling. We can see all the HD programming from the most popular channels, premiums as well as basics.

    That's about all we can ask for from our satellite provider!

    Talk about DBS, not each other folks.

    Ya think?

    I believe E* folks are so sick of the situation (D* catching up after years of promises and no immediate "retaliation" from E* other than trying to match D*'s lies about channel counts) that most just ignore threads like this.

    Now excuse me, I'm going to watch NHL Network HD. Not because I like Hockey, but because I can watch NHL Network HD. :)

    The ONLY leader in HD is the one that has the most channels in HD that YOU want. Right now, for me, that would be Dish.

    I really think it's time to close this useless topic and poll.

    Agreed. The point has been made. D* people believe their service is better than E*.

    Perhaps the poll should read "Who's service is better? a) mine b) the other one c) neither"
