Beating a dead horse with this one.. I have been a long time advocate of getting full time HDRSN's and dish seems to not care. The simple answer is if you want sports pick up the phone and call Directv. Maybe dish will get it one day, the fact that sports generates a lot of revenue, and brings in a lot of subs. But they seemed to be focused on anything that hurts the company in a bid to separate themselves from the competition. IF they truly want to separate themselves, simply offer EVERYTHING in HD all the time! There is no way anyone can match that especially Directv as they don't have enough bandwidth to do so, til 14 when there next bird launches. Even then thats iffy. I just don't get why dish seems to drive customers away with high dvr fees and other fees. In due time, they will sink or sell. I really think they are going to sell, but at the same time I don't think charlie will give up his baby.
