Do you think Dish will reach its 152 markets covering 93% of the US, or will this be the same as last year when we was supposed to have 150 National HD's by the end of the year? I wish Dish would be a little more specific about what they call a market. I think they are misleading customers about how much local HD they will get. For example, how can you say a market is launched when the big 4 (ABC, CBS, FOX, & NBC) are not complete. The market where I get may stations from only 2 of the big are available. Of the 120 "markets" available today 78 have the big 4 and maybe a CW or MNT network. 4 "markets" have at least 4, but not all of the big 4. The other 38 have less than 4. Come on Dish get with the program! Let's at least get the big 4 in all the current markets before we jump around somewhere else.

I would say if a market broadcasts all of the big 4 in hd, then dish would have to provide at least 3 to say they have that market in hd.
I have read where dish only has 1 of the big 4 in hd.
To me, that doesnt count as having that market in hd.
Now if a market doesnt have a cbs or whatever, dish cant do anything about that, but if all of the big 4 are in hd, and dish doesnt have at least 3, it shouldnt count.
Technically, it should be all of the big 4 to count but i know others will disagree.
It is sort of like calling yourself a toyota dealership, but you dont sell all of the models, just 25% or 50%:eek:
Sorry, we dont have Camrys or four runners here, but we are a toyota dealership.;)

So you're a toyota dealer and don't have Camrys or pathfinders!!
Maybe Toyota wants too much for them and you don't want to sell
those models. Agreements have to be reached all over !!!
