    Directv begins pegasus conversions?

    That's the only deal they have that I can find. It might be better to wait for NDS' US launch whenever that will be. http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4845988/ http://www.nds.com/personal_tv/personal_tv.html I forgot the moral to my story. When you transfer to directv, be sure to ask for your acct...

    Directv begins pegasus conversions?

    I decided to go ahead and upgrade the dish to multi-sat since I wasn't sure how long I could keep fox e/w or I have the free locals dish upgrade available. I called 1-800-531-5000 last night to order a new dish and they said 'your acct is inactive.' I said 'but I'm getting the signal.' They...

    Directv begins pegasus conversions?

    Other forums have been asking why I got the $10 discount. She didn't say, but apparently, I was signed up for the Double Deal which you can find on the front page of directv.com. It expires today, so call fast to see if the fine print works for you (like if you'd HAVE to get/activate a new...

    Directv begins pegasus conversions?

    Directv begins pegasus conversions! I got this call this afternoon. If you haven't gotten it yet, call 1-800-883-4992 and see if they'll do it. They asked for phone number, first name of person on the bill, address, zip code, # of receivers, location of receivers (living room, bedroom,...)...

    2004 Olympics

    I suppose directv could finish the locals transistion and add NBC HD in the space made, but I doubt it.

    in-car directv while you drive

    I saw a show over the weekend about RV resorts for $250,000 motor coaches. One guy had one on his roof, hooked up to a couple of 42" plasmas.

    2004 Olympics

    Here's a blurb about 2002, released Dec. 1, 2001. Maybe that means if there is anything to announce, it'll be July 1. "The Winter Olympics will be broadcast in HD by NBC affiliates and HDNet, carried on DirecTV. HDNet will provide the vehicles and support for the 1080i broadcasts.The HD...

    D* and NRTC end exclusive distribution agreement.

    oh cool, i can cut and paste the denial. The peg motions are scans converted to pdf. :P The hearing reference is from peg submitting a reply earlier that day and Judge Haines said in a hearing that he wasn't convinced and issued this denial. The arguments are kinda interesting reading, tho...

    D* and NRTC end exclusive distribution agreement.

    I found a bunch of the legal documents. The latest denial was boring, just says the request is denied, one sentence with zero detail. The restraining order request was 5 parts: make NRTC give Pegasus exclusive rights to peg's territories, NRTC and directv wouldn't be allowed to implement...

    The news is the agreement. It's more for things like luxury, long-distance bus tours.

    NY and LA Locals?

    I meant without the waiver or signal weakness requirements. Very naughty they were, but I loved it while it lasted. It's more up to locals since they're the ones that are hurt by distant feeds. If legal, locals oughta charge to sign waivers for the $ loss from lower ratings. They could...

    NY and LA Locals?

    I bet we'll be blocked out eventually. Once US stations find out about this, they'll try to stop it. Directv offered both coasts for ages before some station realized what was going on, so it might be quite awhile. It reminds me slightly of that Canadian website that streamed a bunch of...

    in-car directv while you drive

    Don't wanna watch the road while you drive? Try this (heavily edited): "DIRECTV and KVH announced an agreement that allows consumers to receive DIRECTV in passenger vehicles. DIRECTV authorized KVH to solicit subscriptions, received by KVH's TracVision A5 antenna. It is the only low profile...

    D* and NRTC end exclusive distribution agreement.

    yet another lawsuit, from Daily Variety: Satellite lawsuits continue to fly. In the latest salvo, DirecTV has sued EchoStar. The industry leader slams its smaller rival for running "false and misleading" ads that claim customers of Pegasus Communications may lose their signals when Pegasus'...

    NY and LA Locals?

    It looks like you fill everything out on the website (maybe call), they ship it, self-install or pay a local indie dishnet installer. If I figured right, it is ~$21/month ($12.59/month for the required locals package, $75/year for the US package, $1.18/mo. for Seattle or Boston's networks...

    Switching from Pegasus...?

    As I understand it, if the customer gives written permission, directv can take over accounts now. Without it, they take over on Aug. 31.

    NY and LA Locals?

    If they think your reception is really bad according to some formula, then you don't need a waiver. We get NBC & CBS fine, ABC kinda snowy, PBS and FOX really snowy. Their formulas say we get everything great except ABC kinda snowy, not enough to give us NYC/LA for anything. But, dtv or...

    Switching from Pegasus...?

    If it is one of those freebie 12-month newbie deals, I think you're stuck for the next year since the contract is with Pegasus. The only possible escape I can think of would be to pay full value for the equipment, tho you'd be better off getting the rebates and going thru the year with Peg...
