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!
