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.
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!
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.
