Last week I ordered a Hughes GCEBO Executive Director Receiver as an upgrade for one of my two existing units. It's scheduled to arrive tomorrow via UPS. Tonight, while surfing through the DirecTV website I read that the HUGHES GCEBO is one of the receivers that is equipped to receive WINK interactive service at no additional charge. If anyone has had experience with WINK I would appreciate any info that you could pass along. I printed out the page that has a listing of all the channels that utilize WINK. There are 20 channels with WINK Enhanced programming and 6 Dedicated Interactive channels.

Is Wink supported in any other receiver? Do the Sony UTV receivers support it (or have similar capability)? I have both the Hughes and the Sony UTVs in transit.
TIA,

I think only the RCA's support Wink (I could be wrong however) My 429RE has it.

I think the Wink content is better then anything that Dish has done with its OpenTV.

All DirecTV receivers introduced within the past year that don't have advanced features (meaning HDTV, TiVo, or UltimateTV) are Wink enabled, regardless of the brand.

I was going to get TIVO but decided to wait because I read that there will be a second generation of TIVO products introduced later this year. At that time I expect to replace my remaining older Hughes receiver with the new version of TIVO.
