Peter : On Rad's Radar?

So DISH Network keeps upgrading my DVR software without my asking. Tonight, I go to record a pay-per-view movie and the dialog box says, "You only have 24 hours to watch this movie before we remove it from your DVR."  Well, that stinks. We used to buy them and watch them at our leisure - usually within a week.

DISH has increased prices across the board. They will lose AT&T as a distribution arm in February of 2009. Will AT&T take its 1M subs to DirecTV? DISH has been  losing subscribers. (Are they the Sprint of TV?) And Echostar lost the patent suit against TIVO. They also have the DTV conversion coming. All this and they add DRM? Do they *want* to chase away subscribers?

Sure, adding MPEG-4 and 1080p content is great. (I just got an HDTV), but I don't want them messing with my DVR. I paid for the movie, what do they care about my time shifting it?  It's time to look at Bright House digital TV packages and save some money.
