Dish Network is holding its quarterly earnings call.

I am on the line trying to listen in, however things at the office are nuts today so I might miss some things.

I am hoping other staff members can call in and recap interesting bits as well. :)

Charlie says DirecTV is operating better then DirecTV.

He says Customer Service has slipped and he is going around working on it as of February 1st.

Charlie says that yesterday they launched 22 channels and that is competitive.

Carl Vogell says the 700MHZ spectrum is for mobile use. He says Echostar could make portable media players for Dish. he says they are a long long long way from doing anything with the 700mhz spectrum.

Question about the VOOM channels.

Charlie says the rest of the VOOM channels will be going away soon. He says there is no demand for the VOOM channels.

He must be tasting crow on that one, after touting Voom in the past.

So he doesn't think they're worth much, and will replace them with channels of "comparable value?" Meaning channels of little worth?

Q:
It is fair to say retention spending is down?
A:
I don't think it is down, we need to look at the churn numbers.
we have lost customers because of HD , we need to upgrade the mpeg2 users to mpeg4 as alot of those customers didn't know they could get new channels.
