    Any numbers on how many subs decided to get "Best Of"?

    Any mentions of channel changes?

    Biggest phrase I'm hearing is "exclusive of merger costs".

    Now talking about debt coming due in 2009

    No mention of any channel changes yet. Still talking about costs and debt.

    "1000s of subscribers have been adding 'best of' every day"

    Job cuts were 22% of workforce...thousands took up "best of" packages...

    No specific channel changes mentioned so far... just that it's good for the company.

    Thousands... Disappointing.
    I would have guessed maybe a couple MIL might have jumped on that one.

    It's not often a line like that is a reassuring thing to hear.

    I thought the same thing, especially with the backlog that shut down the system when it became available.

    1000 a day for 2 years is only 3/4 MIL.

    They did say "thousandS" per day, plural, so who knows. I was hoping for specificcs.

    "best of" packages are selling a lot better than lower-priced packages... they're not willing to give out specific numbers or percentages on it right now...

    So channel changes were confirmed, was Wed Nov 12 confirmed as the date of said changes?
