    Shorts beware or at least sweat..a lot.

    Does anybody know if this is true? If so could be
    very interesting!

    EchoStar Communications Corp
    (DISH)

    In a conference call following the announcement
    of ECHOSTAR
    COMMUNICATIONS CORP's 1Q results,
    Chief Executive Charlie Ergen late
    Monday said that
    it makes sense for EchoStar to share programming
    with satellite TV
    rival DirecTV, a unit of HUGHES
    ELECTRONICS. If legislation allowing
    retransmission of
    local TV signals is passed, one company could
    retransmit the local
    signals from, say, metro Denver
    while customers of both companies received them.
    That
    type of sharing, for local signals or other
    non-core programming, would free up more
    bandwidth for
    both companies and make them more competitive with
    cable TV, Ergen
    said. (Dow Jones)
