[opendtv] Re: News; Dish to Expand HD Roster, Offer 1080p Movies

Really?  Dish network rents their receivers?  I thought one bought them,
aside from a small security module, and they reimbursed you for the purchase
price once you had paid for x months of service.   How do you know
otherwise?

Again, I have no idea what you're talking about.

The story was about DISH delivering a movie exactly the same way as a
DTT broadcasters would. In a time slot, in real time, in an HD format
that by the way broadcasters have always had as an option (at least from
the receivers' point of view).

Whether that content is consumed in that same time slot or not is up to
the consumer, BOTH in the DISH network and in the DTT examples. The main
difference being, I can buy any recording device I please for the DTT
medium, but would be limited to renting the device in the DBS medium.

And this is what the article was about? I thought it was about DISH
delivering 1080p/24 HDTV, in a particular time slot. I think you are
extrapolating the contents of a story to fit into some completely
unrelated topic.
