Well the word is out, the $29.99 all HD will be reality, but the $10 all premium movies HD rumor did not, and no RSN and other prepaid sports packs.
All these point to the fact this new pack is aimed to stop people from leaving E*, and there is very little hope any new HDs will be added soon, otherwise they would not have considered this one to stop the exudes.
And this news come at no better timing for us, cuz our DirecTV service is scheduled to be installed tomorrow. We will not turn off E* any time soon, I need to add more D* HDDVRs (up to a total of 4) before we can switch over 100%.
I hope though this process will be short, cuz I sure don't want to pay for two services if I can avoid it.
By the end of 2008 and into 2009 I expect E* to begin adding more HDs, but still going to be behind D* until maybe end of 2009, by that time our D* two-year contract is going to be over. See you then E*
It's been a fun ride.
