Edit: scratch that. About 2/3 of the way through the movie the EPIX logo came up for about 30 seconds. That was the only time though and that's not too bad.

I wish that the Spanish channels would have SAP for English audio; it would be great.

I may have missed it in the many pages of this thread. But, did HBO and Dish go through any contract negotiations recently? Or, is this just an arbitrary price increase on Dish's part?FYI:
-It's "couldn't care less", not "could care less".
-It's "would've", "should've", and "could've", not "would of", "should of", and "could of".
-It's "voila!", not "walla!" (That's right. You've been speaking French all this time.)
-The first word in each sentence should be capitalized.
-A period goes at the end of each sentence.
-Commas are also a good idea, on occasion.

I think that HBO will find their subscriptions dropping after their latest price hike. I think that they have crossed the line of diminishing returns. You can only get away with charging for your content so much, and I think that line was already crossed when they went up to $16.00 for most people. Now charging $18.00 is over kill. You might as well say $20.00 ,because not many people are going to line up to pay $18.00. Like I stated before I stopped subbing to HBO for full price back after their last price hike at $16.00. IF DISH hadn't offered 1/2 price premium or FREE 3 months for HBO , I wouldn't of watched them at all last summer.

But atleast HBO IMO have more quality shows distributed through out the year. Starz, Showtime (except Homeland) have nothing...& I will not pay anything for them.
