    Do you know the status on the TiVo/Dish lawsuit? There is rumor around that Dish is going under and will be bought out by DirectTV due to the lawsuit.
    Do you know anything new in that department? I work for Dish and was just interested. Because of course they tell us nothing!

    Papers are still flying back and forth as the appeals process churns forward. I don’t think Dish is in danger of going under. As for being acquired by DirecTV – Dish and DirecTV tried to merge a few years back, and the government said no way, because it would be a monopoly. But we’ll have to see if they allow the XM+Sirius merger. If that goes through, it could signal a change in government opinion.
