There is NO WAY Dish HD Only price is going up right now. Dish just killed off Voom so they cannot justify a price hike. This is besides the fact that you cannot get any sports packages with the package either. People will pay the $13/mo penalty to dump their contracts.
I still would rather have upcoverted SD of shows that I enjoy than most of the HD shows that were on VOOM. Yes...I'm cookie cutter and like the popular channels shows like Top Chef on Bravo...not in HD but sure looks nicer than the reg sd channel...AND now we actually get the channel on our HD only package.
