    I was one of many that thought that only a small percentage of the public would even be that aware of the goings on at these big TV providers - mostly limited to the people on this and similar forums. I now see just how strong the boards (led by SatGuys of course) really is.

    However the speed with which DISH has responded to the AMC-14 situation and the very public attempts at putting out this word so quickly shows to me that they are concerned that news (or misinformation regarding this) would spread quickly and have a real effect on their current sub base and ability to attract new business.

    I salute their prompt response to the situation. I hope they get AMC-14 back on track ASAP.

    Notice, the national HD announcements are upcoming (not necessarily the channels) and, as you say, they may include....

    At least it's not any more general than it was before the launch failed....too bad they are not as specific with national HD as they are with LIL, but that is their customer base, after all.

    you need to go back through Scotts statements, He put that they cant announce those channels as coming without a proper press release. If they have that list there you can be assured they are signed or are VERY close.
