I was surfing on this website and was looking at directv's channel lineup and was wondering how they put so many channels on one satellite? They seem to have more than Dish has on 2.... Anyone thats had both directv and dish comment on which has best picture quality... I have a Dish and i am very satisfied.... I'm just curious....

DirecTV has their Spot beam up and fully running this is how they can serve so much from one satellite.

Dish Network is in the process of turning on its first spot beam TODAY!

This means that the local channels will only be broadcast in the areas for which they are intended instead of all local being broadcast nationaly as is the case now.

They're doing it from one slot with all available transponder licenses, not one satellite.
