    Does Sling account for part of Dish's "payTV business"? If so, they still lost satellite customers. 220k added w/sling, but only added 148k total, so doesn't that mean they lost 72k from satellite?

    Wow, satellite only lost 66k customers? That's actually not bad considering they lost HBO and the FOX RSN's this year as well as had a FOX blackout.

    I've been with Dish for over 20 years now. I have supported them all along. For what we get, Dish is a good deal. I recently compared Dish to Direct & Spectrum. First of all, I do do not count the first year deals, because I don't care to switch from carrier to carrier constantly. But considering the regular price, Dish has the best deal. I wish Dish carried a few channels Direct/Spectrum has like CNNI, BBC World (reg packages) and Aspire, but still Dish is good. They do carry several diginets you cannot get OTA here or on Direct. Streaming is still a ways off for me. Okay as an add on, but I would miss out on too much.

    This is one of the few times it would be interesting for Claude to be here.
