DISH stock is rising parallel to customer satisfaction, subscriber numbers and overall quality of DISH products. I got the Hopper a few months back, after a DISH coworker told me about all of the features that would help my family get, record and watch TV. This Whole Home HD DVR connects to four TVs, and each has access to the main DVR playlist. I can also set PrimeTime Anytime to automatically record the entire PT lineup on all four major networks! Plus, 2,000 hours of recording space mean my family and I won't have to constantly delete old recordings to make room for the new. It's easier, and a whole lot more fun than any DVR I've ever had.

However, these fundamental metrics must be analyzed with historic data, industry information in addition to firm specific financial statements.
