I doubt NRTC will be hurt by the RS refusal to accept their new dealer compensation package. The franchisees I've spoken with have all signed on with Pegasus as independents, Best Buy, Circuit City, BlockBuster, Sears, Western Auto, and Wal-Mart still sell into NRTC markets, as do many other independent retailers and numerous e-tailers. RS is the one which likely will be hurt. Its interesting to note that RS has just entered a marketing agreement with Dish, and will begin selling both systems by April. This could well presage RS withdrawing altogether from DirecTV, and does not bode particularly well for the RS/RCA "Partnership".
