    I see that many of my predictions already came true in just a little over a year, here are some new predictions.....

    Within 2-3 years...

    > All locals will be provided on Dish and/or DirecTv

    > All basic packages will have locals in them. The cheapest basic package that is similar to what you see today will be at least $35 on Dish and at least $40-$45 on DirecTv.

    > HD content will increase dramatically becoming at least 30 HD channels becoming available as more HD content becomes available for the DBS providers.

    Within 5 years

    > DVR's may become standard in satellite/cable receivers. The content may become stored on solid state instead of hard drives, increasing reliability, reducing size, and allowing mobility without damage. HD may also become standard with satellite/cable receivers.

    > At least one major merger may happen at least between a channel provider and a DBS provider. There may also be a major merger of a cable company with a DBS provider, more likely Dish Network.
