Heard during Dish Network's earnings call

|By:, SA News Editor

Execs with Dish Network (DISH +4.1%) echoed the same sentiment on the firm's earnings conference call as their counterparts with rival DirecTV did yesterday on the mega-merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable.

The company is clearly concerned about the implications, but isn't going into full panic mode.

Revenue per subscriber numbers have never been better for Dish, but a Comcast-TWC juggernaut creates an uneven playing field on the content acquisition and broadband side.

Chairman Charlie Ergen sounds like a realist on the call, but he also sounds like a man with a plan.
