If Dish does not carry the Big Ten network I will be changing to Direct. I have a Direct flyer and it does not list TNT HD. Is this correct? I am a NASCAR fan, and find it hard to bebeive they would not carry TNT HD>

They do carry TNT-HD

But..........

This past NASCAR season one or two races were in SD due to conflicts with Sunday Ticket (NFL) and lack of HD bandwidth.

I believe they took away a different channel during later races but if the next launch schedule does not go as planned there could be a conflict for next season as well.

NASCAR will again probably win out but it would result in loosing something else.

DTV is also starttig something called NASCAR Hot pass

Sounds interesting if you are a diehard NASCAR fan.

Wonder where they will steal the bandwidth for 5 channels if the birds swim instead of fly? And check out the numbers neeeded to break even.

USATODAY --- Hill, an Australian, shows it's possible for corporate captains to speak in a language that hasn't been sanitized for their protection. Hill says he needs 200,000-250,000 subscribers paying $99 annually in order to break even on Hot Pass: "We've got a hell of a lot of money invested in this. Mother of God, I'm lighting prayer candles. Otherwise, they'll ship me back to Australia in irons."
