    Any talk of future 4K or sports offerings?

    No programming talk at all. (besides Dish Latino). In the past one of the speakers would just be about programming... not this year.

    I respectfully disagree. As I said, I am still happy with with my HWS, all three tuners of it. I have a 4K Joey for my 4K TV and the HWS for my 1080 bedroom TV.

    I won’t upgrade to a H3 anytime soon. I would be happy to have the HWS faster, and when 4K content is readily available, upgrade to the H3.

    If it becomes available 18 May and is no cost (or even small cost) how do we get it? Do we call dish cost service or DIRT?

    I was told you call dish and tell them you want to upgrade as your hopper is too slow. :)

    But personally I would wait a few days after that as we all know how little they know on the first day of something release.

    Thanks. Should we ask for the snap as the solution to the slow performance?

    I wonder if they are using Hughes net at all there tower locations for transport and transit? The demo counted down video on youtube with Charlie showed some vsat.

    Yeah, the same thought crossed my mind when I read the quote from Charlie suggesting that consolidation of the two satellite operators (Dish & DirecTV) "would be good". Although both companies realize that their future lies in IP networks, Dish is now and always has been way more centered on DBS than AT&T. I don't think AT&T cares much at all about satellite TV, per se, and they'll try to shift the bulk of their customers over to their streaming TV products.

    I could imagine Charlie being open to buying the DirecTV DBS business and consolidating it with Dish but I don't think AT&T would be open to selling it until a couple more years at least, to give them time to transition customers to their other products. And I'm not sure Dish could swing the purchase either. I don't know where they're going to get the cash to build out a nationwide 5G network from scratch, much less purchase DirecTV too.

    Charlie said satellite was and will continue to be their core product.

    WOW, that sure is good to hear. Can you thank him for inventing the Hopper 3, DVR of the decade?

    Scott: Regarding the Hopper Snap availability on May 16th. I assume you would need to call Dish to request one, right?
    LOL. My experience with the Dish CSR's is that they're the last to know about anything new at Dish. Is this intentional?

    Wait for me to tell you they are available. As I know they won’t be available on time.

    I shot a great demo video with the person who actually did all the work on the project. I think you will be impressed when I get it online.

    But for many of us, the Veterans and 55+ deals make the Snap moot.

    I think I’ll finally move on the Hopper 3 with these deals.

    I’ve got somebody now to install an attic ladder. Make access to wiring much easier.

    So, many thanks to you for the info and impetus.

    Quite a lot of talk about their upcoming 5G network though, wasn't there? Assuming Dish actually builds it out (rather than sell off the spectrum to, say, T-Mobile if their proposed merger with Sprint gets blocked, as Dish has lobbied for), yes, it would take years before 5G becomes an actual business for Dish. Building a whole network from scratch takes time. But if it does become a reality then, surely, it becomes the main focus of the company. Charlie knows that everything is moving to the internet and that traditional multichannel TV service has peaked.

    Scott. Regarding the Hopper Snap, do you think it might eventually be available from sources other than Dish? Perhaps Dish Depot, etc.

    I started to really believe that with the MVDDS test sites we've been doping, coupled with what I know about the future of DTV
