Tom Bombadil said:Interesting.
It looks like the Dish HD feed was helpful to some. Probably aided many thousands to see the SB in HD. So Dish probably got some good PR with the move.
And it isn't surprising that the quality from the Dish feed was a bit lower. Hard to compete with OTA.
I watched via OTA, using a cheap indoor antenna, sitting 10 miles from the tower, behind a small hill. Never even saw a dropped frame. Perfect reception.

Over 4 times as many watched OTA with a Dish receiver than did with the special Dish HD feed.
I guess I'm not very good at setting up polls. I intended it to be only Dish HD subs participating but I'm not sure I was that clear about that.
