Interesting staff is getting revealed on DishNewsOnline - "unbiased Sat TV industry source", as they say. Double checked - no piracy files there, just more legal lessons learned and prompts for the "other side" to convert to true FTA.
On the flip side, some reports like this one are popping up stating that DN's so called Premium and PPV channels are no more: they run in loops the same few 3-d class movies and shuffle them btw channels endlessly in SD and HD. On top, HD content is said of low picture quality and even more castrated in choice. Long overlooked OTA free shows creative level and diversity are getting better marks now then the DN's premium sub offer. It sounds like the broadcaster re-negotiated its contracts with premium content providers to make their product a lot cheaper to buy in bulk. Of course without slashing sub fees. Subscribers wonder if major part of these customer fees now goes to pay for quickly mounting law suites around the country, asking: "What we are paying for? Who is stealing what from whom now?"
