    Hey DISH, Improve Your Picture Quality

    I'm watching a recording from HBO now. It's in HD. It looks far better than the VOD "HD" recording that currently sits on the hard drive (which looked the same as streaming from HBO Go, except that one kept stopping to buffer). I have friends who disagree but I can't sit and watch a pixelated...

    Hey DISH, Improve Your Picture Quality

    We downloaded "Place Beyond the Pines" from VOD last night (under the HBO section). Our internet speed is 20+ Mbps. The quality was so terrible we abandoned it (granted I also tried a few times on HBO Go--via Apple TV--and the quality was awful. Netflix and Amazon are perfect). Posted Via...

    Choppy/stuttering image on sitcoms

    Ok, I'm at a loss on this one. About two months ago we purchased a new LCD/LED set (Samsung UN46F6300). The image generally looks good; however, certain programming exhibits a strange behavior that drives me crazy. Portions of that image appear choppy or seem to stutter--I usually notice it...

    Goodbye Dish

    Seriously?? "Gub'ment checks"? Like social security, or are you talking about welfare? For 2011: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/09/18/who-receives-benefits-from-the-federal-government-in-six-charts/ There's a pretty massive group that falls between those who've "made...

    DIRT Question Regarding Cancellation

    :(:(:( Do you insist upon paying full price for cell phones as well? "I don't care about your sale, sir, charge me full price for that television set!" Coupons are evil! Please. Dish and DirecTV don't offer promotions and discounts out of charity.

    HBO - Game of Thrones (No Spoilers)

    Did anyone else get audio pops towards the end of the episode (maybe just the music)? Dish here.

    Getting Dish just for HBO Go

    I do wish that Dish would get on board with Showtime Anytime and Watch ESPN already...

    Dish Anywhere to the rescue!!

    Yes, it would be nice if the live TV option didn't require the home box to actually receive the signal and send it back out... *edit* Although now that I think about it, I seem to remember my old dish box with external sling adapter working (marginally) better than the HWS. Did anyone else...

    Dish Anywhere to the rescue!!

    I would love to know how anyone gets Dish anywhere to work. I'm currently attempting to watch a live program. My mobile device is pulling down about 40 mbps, and we have the highest consumer tier of Uverse broadband at home. Still, HQ is pretty much impossible to watch, and even SQ is...

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    The customer cannot receive service, so they're not getting anything for free. I don't know if anyone is arguing the contract is void (I don't believe they are); rather, some have suggested that this is a poor business practice. This situation is likely one that is not encountered terribly...

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    The equipment is loaned to the customer and recovered (or billed for) when service is discontinued. I don't know of a television provider that does not provide the customer with equipment.

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    Because lord knows a business never succeeds by viewing their actions through their "customer's perspective"! Oh wait... Dish loyalists will defend this action. Most potential customers would be turned off by it. (And I'm a mostly-satisfied Dish customer, by the way). Considering that...

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    That's where the alleged "subsidy" is, in the install? What if there's no install needed? Same pricing, no contract?

    Another OTA module question

    Great, thanks.

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    Obviously, and that doesn't really have a bearing on my point (I am a lawyer, by the way, so I understand the finer points of contract law. I just don't think enforcement of the ETF makes much sense in this situation). It's sort of like how I feel about Dish charging customers to return...

    Another OTA module question

    Does the OTA module add another receiver? How expensive are they?

    No Showtime anytime for Dish?

    Dish doesn't even offer any Showtime programming on demand, unlike HBO/Cinemax (granted, Dish's overall on demand offerings are pretty poor to begin with).

    Early Termination Fee - No Line of Sight after Moving

    Requiring a customer to pay a fee when Dish is incapable of providing that customer service at a new location is simply a terrible business practice. Just because you're "right" in a legal sense doesn't necessarily mean it's the correct or even reasonable course of action to take (particularly...

    Blockbuster iOS app released

    I tried to sign in using the same username and password that I use on the blockbuster@home website. Didn't work.
