What was the last pay-TV offering for C-Band? When my parents dumped their BUD service in 1998, I believe we had Netlink for a package of channels. Then at some point I heard there was 4DTV, which now seems to be defunct.

I'm sure the demise has to do with lack of demand. I sure would enjoy seeing how CBand premium channels look compared to the ones I have on Dish (i.e., not overly compressed).

Just look at an OTA channel that you can receive and compare it to the same FTA channel !

The bigger the tv the better to see the difference !

FTA Wins!

I’m talking about comparing the pay-tv channels. I agree that the NBC’s, ABC’s etc on FTA look better than OTA for sure.

There was , not too long ago, a retailer out of Colorado I believe. That promoted itself as an option for c-band dish owners (a pay service) but you have to buy their receiver.
