Read what Sky report and NPS have to say about Motorola and C-Band:

"C-Band at the End?

Looks like the consumer C-Band business will be dead and gone by the end of this year. After hearing from several retailers about rumors that Motorola would cease its authorization stream, we started making inquires. No response from Motorola but Mike Monfort of National Programming Service (NPS) confirms that the demise is likely.

'We had a conference call in late December when Motorola talked about discontinuing the authorization stream on April 15th,' Monfort says. After some protests and concerted lobbying, the giant manufacturer boosted prices by 20%, agreed to continue service until the end of the year and said they will then decide the future.

Motorola will almost certainly discontinue the service, Monfort says, so his National Programming Service (NPS) has ceased selling annual subscriptions. That's bad news for many retailers and C-Band's current 22,606 subscribers. 'The people who are left love their C-Band," Monfort says. But Motorola apparently finds the business inconvenient ... and so an era is coming to an end' "

Now it appears NPS is saying they have 22,000 it seems the number keeps growing. I sure wish people would just read before jumping to the wrong conclusion. Would it be possible to move this to the other posting on this same topic?

Anything NPS says now you have to take with suspect. They lied somewhat in the past to string the c bander along, like with IPTV and fixing there G3 uplinks. Now it's just outright lie after lie. Why don't Mike Mountford come clean and tell the truth?
