Basically its pretty close. Dish a little bang for the buck. Dish tends to play hardball with the channel providers so they don't carry some things you may be interested in.
Example: Are you a Yankee fan in the New York City DMA? Forget about it! Dish does not carry YES Network may not ever. I heard YES wanted either a deal where Dish would need to raise the price of everyone in the NYC area by $4.00 whether they wanted YES or not or $1.00 for everyone across the entire country!
