Dish Delivers Delightful Deal


Dish network, and Southwest Airlines unveiled a promotional deal today in which the carrier will offer live TV via satellite, paid for by Dish.

In return, travelers will see air a 30-second Dish spot when they start watching, and the satellite provider’s ads will show up in confirmation emails and at airports.

The promotion, which runs through September, will give passengers access to 14 live channels and 75 on-demand shows on their phones or tablets during about 60% of flights on Southwest, which carries more than 100 million passengers annually.

Hmmm…

Some free TV shows while you fly,

It’s something Dish wants you to try,

There’s some on demand,

Right at your command,

They’re hoping that someday you’ll by.

 

They’ll do it on SWA,

You’ll get it without having to pay,

For just a short time,

While the airplanes climb,

Just some flights will have TV all day.

A Hopper, skip and a jump.


Dish Network has been sued by Fox, CBS, and NBC over its Hopper DVR. The TIVO like device automatically skips over ads, cutting into broadcasters’ revenue.

God forbid we should miss an advert on TV.

Oh, where did I put that box of tissues? I’m going to ruin the new wood flooring with my copious tears for the networks.

I haven’t felt this bad since my last colonoscopy prep.

Hmmm.

Dish has been sued for its Hopper,

It is a real ad stopper;

It skips over ads,

For me that’s not bad,

I won’t have to watch that floor mopper.
