    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    And he bought it for $44 billion and it's only worth $12.5 billion as of January of 2024. Real good investment huh? That is a 71% decrease from the price Musk paid for the company in 2022. He is running it straight into the ground. :smug

    Quantum Leap Coming Back!

    I enjoyed the show and Ben was a good actor that made you believe he cared. But once again NBC and their track record with Sci-fi is bleak. They have destroyed a lot of good shows by filming too few episodes and waiting too long to come back. This could of also had a lot to do with the...

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    I don't see this happening since DISH is bleeding subs and cash they need to finish their cell phone network. Directv is in no better condition with their subs leaving just as fast. Satellite TV is soon to be relic of the past like VCRS and 8 track tapes and cassettes. I don't see either...

    Traditional Providers Losses, the entire year of 2023 Edition

    I don't have any problem paying for what I want to see. It is paying for someone else to watch sports that bugs me. All the years I paid for that piss me off. I mean going back to 1981 through 2020 I had either cable or satellite and it was built into the programming packs and you couldn't...

    From DISH about Locals

    For a while, but not for ever. Broadband is being spread across the country, including in rural areas thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act. They only started to spend on it less than two years ago after they passed it in 2022. They will be spending on it for quite a few years till...

    Traditional Providers Losses, the entire year of 2023 Edition

    I hope they do explode and take the sports with them. How many years did we pay for them when we didn't like or want sports in normal cable/satellite packs? Let those who want sports pay for them and the rest of us can opt out. :smug

    From DISH about Locals

    IF only DISH had come out with a 4 tuner ota usb dongle,so you could still get all 4 networks recording then subs could still have auto skip on their shows using Prime time anywhere and not miss anything by using an antenna instead of sat locals. I have that in my Tablo and my Air Tv Anywhere...

    Cable And Satellite Providers Required To Disclose “All In” Pricing Under Newly Passed FCC Rules

    Most installs are the Hopper and the Joey setup. The Wallys have been more for recreational vehicles and out door accounts and tail gaters. I have had both Hopper and the Wally and the Wallys have been a lot of trouble, at least for my parents on my second account I used to have. The Hopper...

    Cable And Satellite Providers Required To Disclose “All In” Pricing Under Newly Passed FCC Rules

    Boy when they have to post all their DVR Fees and additional receiver Fees in with the programming cost as well ,they will really see churn and a drop off of potential subs. I mean you would pay with a Hopper and two joeys : $15.00 DVR FEE $7.00 x 2 joeys =$14.00...

    EchoStar Completes Nationwide Drive Test for Boost Wireless Network, Completing All 2023 FCC Commitments

    So next deadline is June of 2025 for 75% coverage. IF they don't go bankrupt first.

    Traditional Providers Losses, the entire year of 2023 Edition

    Cable has no one to blame but themselves for killing the goose that laid the golden egg. Their price hikes and excessive fees made their service unusable to a majority of the people. :oops:

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    No, I am a jock strap wearer. I don't wear underwear to the Ymca. I rarely free ball except when I sleep in my bed. I wear under wear for regular things like going out and visits to the doctor etc. :smug

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    Personally I wear jock straps with my gym clothes. Our junior high and high school required it in the 70s. I go to the Ymca 6 - 7 days a week ,so no underwear for me. Wear it only on special Holiday occasions or when I go to the doctor. :biggrin2

    Elsbeth-CBS

    Yeah, I wonder how a lawyer from the Good Wife suddenly becomes a detective in this show? But she is funny and I do like the show. I liked her as the waitress in HBO True Blood too. They even had her co-star from that show in the first episode and he played Bill the vampire in True Blood...

    Tracker - CBS

    Just another procedural drama series for CBS the home of elderly programming. But I do like Justin Hartley so I am watching it. We used to watch him on that crazy Passions soap opera on NBC like 24 years ago. Also on This is Us on NBC, but lost interest in that show after they killed off...

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    I didn't think they would. Satellite TV is dying a quick death. Add to that the Boost 5g money pit and you can see why DISH can't pay it's debt. Bankruptcy is the only option. The question will it be restructured Bankruptcy or a total liquidation going out of business sale. :rolleyes:

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    Yes, Charlie Ergen flew to Dubai last May 2023 and came back empty handed. The bank is closed right now. Unless maybe Elon Musk want's to buy in? He is already worth less since he took on Twitter at $45 billion and it's only worth $19 billion now. He is now number 2 in wealth after Jeff...

    EchoStar/Dish raises doubts about 'ability to continue as a going concern'

    I said the same thing. Boost was not a good investment since we have had cell phones for about 20 years now. Trying to start a complete cell phone network by scratch and compete with established cell phone companies was a bad idea. If Charlie is smart he will sell some of that bandwith to...
