I bought my HDTV and got an 811 to watch HDTV. I chose DISH over ZOOM because I think ZOOM was costing too much monthly for HDTV programming plus all the other stuff they added on. Being aware that in the next few month HDTV will become more and more avaliable because of the government mandate I went with DISH who only has about 6 regular HDTV channels right now. I was curious to find out when will DISH start to add more HDTV programming to their line-up which I believe they have to because of the new regulations set forth by the government by 2006. And weather they will drop the extra monthly charge for HDTV programming in light of the fact that most TV's will soon come built with HDTV tuners.
