Not to veer off topic, but, from an installation standpoint Directv is much easier to install in regards to los in this dma. While there are many EA markets on the east coast, there are also many WA areas. Here the 129 bird comes in on a 24 degree elevation & Directv 101 is 44, that is huge when trying to find a los & all the difference in the world between getting a signal or not. From Claudes standpoint D* is much less risk also because he's only responsible for the equipment for 3 days vs E* which is 180 days, that is huge when footing the bill equipment wise for a complete stranger who may or may not keep the service for the required term.
In regards to the op's question, it is my opinion that if you're an employee of a communications company that all services provided should be part of your benefits excluding ppv. Cable companies have been doing this for their people for years & most of them have stock prices well under dish except for a few. My own personal opinions of dish have seriously diminished over the years even though I am still a customer. They definitely could change things for the better, if not for customers, at least for their own people.
