Just curious, what HD channels were you missing on Dish that you get on Direct?

The only ones I can think of are some of the ESPN channels and ABC Family/Disney channels, but those should be getting fixed now that the contract dispute is over.

Wow, that is AWESOME!!! Being out here in California, it's SOOO nice to have this nationwide. Great exposure to recruits in other areas of the country. I recently dropped my package on DISH down to the 120+ so this will be awesome to still have this available. Props to DISH on this one!

Yeah, they just haven't figure out how to make that Earth to Satellite connection actually work like a normal broadband.

I don't remember all of them, but the ones you mentioned were the main ones. My wife's parents have Dish, and when I go through their guide, it amazes me how few channels are actually in HD.

I've got Dish and I love it. LIke the poster above said, the only HD Channels they didn't have that I missed were ESPNU, ESPNNEWS, and a few ABC channels, but that's going to change with this deal. Also, you can't beat the Sling option. Being able to watch TV anywhere has been awesome. We use it tailgating all the time. I see these people popping up Dish's left and right while we just fire up a hot spot, plug in a laptop, connect it to a TV and we're on. Works great too!

There really needs to be a DirecTV thread for those of us complaining about not having the SEC network... :/

Still no word on whether or not Direct Tv will be offering the SEC Network. I really hope they pick it up.

I feel like all TV providers will. If not, there will be a hell of a lot of complaints.

That's what I'm thinking. You know Direct TV will want to keep up with dish and so on and so forth. Too much money to be made not to carry it.
