HD Cable Question

Postby TheA'sFatLeadoffMan » Mon Feb 12, 2007 3:06 pm

Okay, so recently I bought an HDTV, and thus have decided to upgrade my cable package. I called up Dish and they told me they could do 1 of 2 things. A) Give me an HD package, in which I would sign up for my normal 200 channel package, but it would include 27 HD channels. B) Give me an enabling deal, that would enable me to see any stations that I am already getting in HD.

Anyways, option A) costs an extra $30 a month and B) costs an extra $11 a month and I was wondering what would be better as far as cost effiecntcy. Because from what I am guessing is that if I actually got the package a few of those channels would be just token HD channels that I'm never going to watch, where as with the simple enabling, I guessing or hoping I would be able to get see ESPN in HD also my local stations that I pay to get through my cable box.

Sounds like you spoke to someone who is dumb.

Ask what stations you'll get. For 11$ a month they might just mean you get abc, cbs, nbc, fox in HD which would suck.

I think ESPN is going to cost you
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
