Dish Network

I work for Dish Network (big deal) and after reading your article, I felt a bit better. It’s a measly-Mc-Job.

I am so caught-up with a gillion channels of DISH-THIS, DIRECTV-THAT and TiVo that I should just stop a second and slow down.

Thanks for your article. It was very informative.
