Yeah, I had this avoidance of the true HD channel count.
Dish had been pretty good, and up until last September, their ads stated 38 or 39 HD channels. Then when D* started to pad their numbers, and Comcast started to call VOD-HD as "HD choices", then dish magically went up to 70 HD channels over night by adding PPV-HD, NBA-HD, NHL-HD, HD-Alt, and BIG10 Mirror channels (that rarely have content) to their HD Count.
At least they weren't lying when they did indeed have the lead.
