- 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.
