rad said:And where does it say on ths forum's rules that you can only post if you are a customer of a service? I feel that I have every right to make my option know about Charlie and how he's running Echostar. Someone got to bring up the alternative points of views to counter balance all the folks that just love Charlie to death and think that he can do no wrong.
As much as I have liked some of the discussions we have had about the 811 and you being a Chicago boyall.I have to ask Why do you care about DISH anymore? We have plenty of DISH users who cut Echostar and Charlie no slack.
Seems like a silly crusade and a waste of time that could be better spent helping the homeless along the Dan Ryan

I didn't get any free installs or hardware to switch from D* to E*, I paid over $1300 for my system and install, and that included a 301 and 501 on DHP. I kept hoping the the long awaited 921, even was #5 on Scotts pre-order list. I was looking forward to getting my SuperDish and being able to watch all the new HD programming (remember E* said that they'd launch SuperDish with 10 HD channels). I paid $299 for an 811 because of all the features that were supposed to be on it.
normang said:So its all Charlie's fault that you paid full boat? Didn't get any deals? I don't think so..
While Dish has issues with delivering their gear and software issues to boot, its only TV for crying out loud.. Don't you think its time to get a life.. Get over it.. Its time to move on and smell the roses, eventually it will all be over, the channels will be back, rates will go up somewhere along the line as sure as the sun will shine tomorrow (assuming no clouds of course) And the software will get fixed, and receivers will be plentiful.
Unfortunately you aren't doing anything to Dish or Charlie. You just come off as a persistant whiner. Oh well It's your life bitter as it is.rad said:Maybe I like putting the screws to E* and Charlie a bit.

The yesterday one of them comes up and tell me that his little girl came up to him and asked where Nick was, how come she can't watch it anymore, and I feel bad since he got Dish after talking to me. So excuse me if I feel like taking a pot shot at Charlie and company, I feel that I've paid for the right to take them when I can.

Kevinw said:. No emotion. No attachments.
Its the emotional attack response when ANY post about DISH, Charlie or the 811...At what point does informing others of shortcomings and venting become obssesive? This is like the polar opposite of those who think DISH is heaven and Charlie is the Second Coming..Is there no objective middle ground?
WLong said:With the possible addition of the MLB package, I wont be changing to another DBS provider anytime soon - If the MLB package on DISH comes to fruition. What better way is there to forget about lost channels than good old fashioned American Baseball?
GaryPen said:I certainly hope there is. It's what I strive for, and why it irks me so much when I see that weird, fanatical, almost religious, fervor of the Dishites.
I keep waiting for them to start ladling out the Kool-Aid.
