Stargazer said:I think this could be a temporary thing until the new satellite is launched next year and that they are trying to cut down on SuperDish installations until a lot of the installs are done in some of these large markets that are going to be launched. Just as quick as Dish decided to put all the HD channels (in which are not many) onto 105, they could just as quick decide to add all new HD (in which can be many of them) to 105 and/or 121. The SuperDish did not land on its belly. The locals will bring more people onto Dish Network for a while than what HD will.
I still would not feel comfortable putting that kind of money into an HD product when you can get the same product with Dish Network for about half the price (probably even cheaper than that with promotions), and since the company is new and the hardware could become paperweight. Its happened before with satellite and it could happen again. Dish Network may have responded like this with the launch of Voom and decided to take this approach (at least at this time).
