Don't really care about when but how much the movie costs. I pay $16.99 (Blu Ray) for Netflix and I can watch 4-6 movies a month. With Dish, I could probably watch 2 HD movies per month for that price.

Why does this even need a press release?
If satellite companies send out a press release then I post them, and thats what happened here. :)

I just post what I get.

Wanna bet?

It's called instant gratification.

Now go back under your bridge troll, I think you've come out into the light too much recently.

Name calling. Typical.

Never say anything against the "Almighty" DISH Network.

This isn't Dish getting it earlier, it's Netflix (and, I assume, Redbox) having to delay releasing movies to subscribers. I believe there was a story about this a while ago, how Netflix had to make an agreement with one of the studios to delay releasing new movies by 30 days in order to be allowed to have them at all (or something like that).

Amounts to the same thing, of course, but this would presumably go for any satellite or cable provider.

Exactly. These are the only 2 that will not have it.

Maybe typical for you, because every one of your posts is anti-Dish. I took a look at your previous posts.......:rolleyes:

Even as petty as a press release in this case.

WOW, I can find quite a few of yours that are anti-Directv.

Yeah but your starting to troll the Dish Network forums to much lately. Almost time for a warning.

Keep things on topic please. :)
