Just found this:

NEW YORK, Sept 23 (Reuters) - U.S. satellite TV provider DISH Network Corp (DISH.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) agreed to extend its joint marketing partnership with AT&T Inc (T.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) by one month through to Jan 31 2009, according to a regulatory filing on Tuesday.

AT&T said in July that it would end the five-year marketing partnership with DISH by the end of the year. AT&T had said in April that it would end a similar partnership with DirecTV Group (DTV.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), the largest U.S. satellite provider.

Both satellite operators are expected to bid for an exclusive marketing partnership with AT&T to sell joint packages of satellite TV, phone and high speed Internet access.

The partnerships have been important for both the satellite companies and AT&T in competing against the so-called 'Triple Play' offers from cable operators like Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) and Time Warner Cable Inc (TWC.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz).

Yep. But not everywhere, and it really isn't very good.

If you want to record a couple of HD shows while watching a third, you'd better have a satco or Fios. Maybe some cablecos support that too.

I Just read on the Multichannel News site that AT&T has decided to partner with Direct TV starting Feb 1, 2009. For those of us that currently go through AT&T for our dish service how does this affect us? Will Dish have to come out and give us new boxes etc?

First I hope direct does better for them then we did..even though they used our equipment their service was worse, partially due to the lack of 24hr tech support..
I have no worries we will be here for long time...

This does not come as a surprise I hope.
D* offers a lot more than E* in term of programming, have less problems with programmers. I have been a customer with E* for over 12 years, and I will drop them "soon", for the simple reason of not being able to get HD only. Probably the D* does not offer HD only, but I just had it with E*. Voom, golTV etc...that did it.
Goodbye Charlie,I hope you lose Billions come Monday when the stock market opens with the ATT news.

Doesn't Dish offer an all HD package?

I used to like Chevy...then switched to Ford. Does that mean I can also hope GM will "lose billions" due to my personal preferences? I definitely have to question your choice(s) for hatred.

You need to realize there are pro and cons to any service.

U-verse is bound to have features or limits that some people don't like either.

I'm not saying you shouldn't change. Heck, when U-verse gets to my area, you better believe I'm going to check it out.

Do you have any idea how many U-verse subscribers I have switched back to Dish while they were still in their 30 day trial period?

It is not everything they lead you to believe. At least not yet.
