Q: E-Mail /Martin from Tulsa
Congratulations on the Dish car winning, I've heard Dish is in talks to take over the sponsorship of the Busch Series , is that a possibility?
A: Actually I don't know, we haven't signed anything...
When will the External USB HDD be enabled in HD Dvr's
A: Tech chat next month we will go over it, look for August or Late Summer rollout.
Does your HD from Dishnetwork come in 1080p or 1080i?
A: We broadcast in the signal we are provided with1080i and 720p.
2 questions for you guys-1. DirecTv is claiming they are going to launch 100 HD channels 2. What happened with the negotiations with MLB?
A: 2.We made MLB an offer they chose to sign a exclusive contract with DirecTv and Cable got the network.
1. Theres not 100 channels of HD available, we hope to stay the HD leader and are in negotiations with all new HD providers.
Eric Sahl: We are talking to the top rated SD networks in negotiations for several, I think you will see a very positive announcment on those. SmithsonianHD and others are coming out, there are just not that many HD channels out there.
Stu Ostro from the weather channel talks about the weather channel and the upcoming Hurricane season.
