The internet is replacing everything one way or another

I'm quite a bit farther south than that. I'm giving the whole thing a pass. I'll stay with Dish Network until Hawaiian Telcom provides fiber. My Dish bill is only $47/month. Last year I reduced it to the bare minimum required to get NFL, minus ESPN. No movie channels. I typically don't get half the Thursday night games and all the Monday night games, but I download them, plus lots of Sunday games Dish doesn't provide via bittorrent download.
Frankly, if it weren't for the NFL, I'd probably drop Dish and not replace it with any other TV solution than bittorrent downloading, which can provide everything I currently watch on Dish plus tons more. All the movies I'd ever want, many still in theaters. My speed isn't fast enough to support streaming, but I don't mind waiting for the downloads to finish. I get all the national and local news from the internet anyway.
Δ Patience and persistance requred
