I also read that Dish is trying to convince the FCC to force Sprint/Clearwire to reveal their plans for the spectrum because they want it so bad. Who the hell does Dish think they are? Even if Sprint...

What's kind of interesting to me is that for one store in my area (supposedly the third or fourth best-performing store in the nation), they actually renegotiated the lease to end in March 2014. And...

You think Dish will really announce store closings tomorrow, or you think the plug will be pulled on IHBB tomorrow? LOL, do you have insider BB information to share?

Your prediction: When will Dish announce the next round of store closures?

I figure that, since the forum is still around, I might as well pose this question to you guys since it seems like it's the only relevant BB-related question left to ask: when do you guys think Dish...

Oh, I know that the remaining 500 stores will close eventually -- I don't actually believe that Dish plans to operate them for the long-term or to open anymore stores. I was just asking DJblade what...

I agree -- it is all about new releases. So that's the thing -- if you keep a BB new release checked out for 2 days, you have paid 8$ + tax. When you factor in the gas money spent to go to-and-from...
