    Profits going down the drain

    The cable industy has been getting a lot of press about there
    "new" digital services. The press never mentions that is
    costs a minimum of 15.00$ more + 8$/TV and there is only 240
    lines of resolution instead of 400 on a dish channel.

    • I think DishNetwork will have a year-end rally.
      Today they announced that they've hit the million
      subscriber mark! This is the only 'pure play' in
      the direct broadcast industry. An English dbs
      company has a market cap of over 12 Billion dollars.
      This is over 20 times the value of DishNetwork.
      The U.K. is approx. one fifth as populous as the U.S.

    • to know where your getting your figures from? I have never had
      a complaint from any of my customers about resolution or prices
      of programming. I live in New Orleans and eighty percent of my
      customers are changing from cable to dish. And there all happy
      campers. They have a dish and you should to! You must be a cable
      salesman possibly. I recently bought stock in dish @ 18.00 and
      its now 16.50 I think. Do you realize they have a million subs
      @ an average of 34.00 per month. Thats 34 million dollars monthly
      income. Just wait till they get to two million. The name of the
      game is recurring revenue my friend!
