Dish just called...
About a month ago, I switched from E* to D*, with the reason being HD content (yeah, yeah, grass greener, I know). Anyhow, I just got a call from E* wondering why I left, so I told the lady exactly why. She then proceeded to tell me that "DISH is the leader in HD" and offers over 70 channels that I can subscribe to today with more on the way. I said, "So you're telling me that I can subscribe to 70 channels of HD with DISH right now?" with her responding "Yes." This resulted in an argument. I asked if they were including all of the HD RSNs (which I can't see, obviously), and she said no, that the cound doesn't include HD RSNs or premiums. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? I just don't get it. Perhaps if they had said that they're not there yet, but are working on it, that would have sat better, but I'm astonished that they would just call and outright lie. Is E* really that much in denial that they have to resort to stuff like this?
Please note that this isn't meant to be inflammatory, and I know that I'm now a D* sub posting in the E* forum and as such should watch my step. I'm not trying to start a "mine's better than your's" thread, but if for some reason it devolves into that, please move to the WarZone.

YOU know they ain't the HD leader - I know they ain't the HD leader and 99% of the people reading this forum know that they ain't the HD leader .. but as long as they keep their eyes closed and put their fingers in their ears and yell "na na na na na" over and over again - they can just about convince themselves that they are indeed the "HD leader"
Anyone that can tell you that dish IS the HD leader without cracking a smile is simply smoking or drinking something that isn't legally available to the rest of us.

I really wonder how many customers Dish has gotten by telling people this bs.
Damn Dish. Just be upfront with your subs and customers that may want to be a sub. Is this too much to ask for? I will answer that. Hell yea it is!!!
You are acting like the ugly girl in school who thought she was so damn hot
