:evil: What is your opinion of Charlie's latest "poker strategy" at threatening last night to turn off all the Turners? I mean really, what would Dish's lineup look like without Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN, TNT, TBS, etc. I know people say this is all part of his strategy to get the deal he wants, but this one is HUGE. I am concerned that it may be more of a possibility than we may be led to believe for the mere fact that he mentioned it on the Chat. We aren't talking 1 channel here...we are talking about a whole block of programming. Do you think it could happen?

When I watched it last night, I don't remember him mentioning TBS or TNT. I was set to go with Dish Network at the first of the year, but now I don't know what I want to do. If I go with Dish, I lose Fine Living, if I stay with DirecTV, I will probably NEVER be able to get the WB! or UPN unless they add distant nets, and they don't seem to be interested in doing this. However, if they were to get rid of the Turner networks, I might stay with DirecTV. I don't know, it's an interesting time in satellite, and things will definately be changing soon... only time will tell if DirecTV or Dish Network will be the company to be with.
