nope. The 921/942/6000 & 811 are MPEG2 HD capable receivers that are on the old grandfathered plan.
9.99 for 5 channels
????? I'm not sure what you're talking about (you didn't include any quoted post for context).???? Big Band the TV Show??? or is that the more HD soon Dish talk???
Ironically, I think there are a few subs (like myself) who are waiting to see what EA offers before they pull the plug on Dish Network.
An interesting possibility is that since these are on 61.5, they could mirror them on 129 and free up enough space on 110 for 12-14 national HD channels.They added seven of the HD National that are on 110 to 61.5 using MPEG4. Are these MPEG2 Channels on 110? If so when is the other shoe (129) going to drop?

This would coincide with the necessity to not authorize any 921 or 942's, and it would match nicely with the CSR's statement that "all the new national HD will be on 110" (see thread in Dish Network Forum).
If DirecTV offered a HD Only Pak in Jan when my E* contract ran out I would have switched and not looked back. The main reason I stayed was the dishHD (only) package gave me nearly everything I wanted, at a much lower price, while I waited for Dish to finally offer my HD Locals and SciFi HD*.
