    Underlying theme behind our metamorphosis is to keep the customer at the center of everything we do he says.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:12:06 PM
    We embrace change, technology, and the consumer, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:12:26 PM
    What they want is choice and control, Clayton says about the consumer.

    Unlike other content providers and broadcasters, we're willing to take risks, he says.

    Clayton paints Dish as pro consumer, and going against the status quo.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:13:09 PM
    Dish believes it has its finger on the pulse of what consumers really want, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:13:28 PM
    I'm surprised the pay-TV providers aren't standing up for the rights of consumers, he says.
  • Josh Miller 1/7/2013 11:13:30 PM
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:14:00 PM
    He should be a politician.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:14:01 PM
    The industry is facing significant double-digit programming cost increases, he says. The current business model must change.

  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:14:19 PM
    To win in the sea of sameness, we must distinctively differentiate our product, he says.

  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:14:47 PM
    This may involve channel takedowns from time to time, he says, alluding to the AMC blackout and dispute it previously had.
  • Josh Miller 1/7/2013 11:15:06 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:15:08 PM
    Clayton frames the argument that Dish is fighting for consumers' rights and wallets when going after networks seeing higher fees.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:15:48 PM
    With AutoHop, second-day viewing can be commercial free, so the customer can choose to watch shows, not commercials, Clayton says.

  • Josh Miller 1/7/2013 11:16:11 PM
  • David Carnoy 1/7/2013 11:16:35 PM
    He's rehashing old features. Wish he'd hurry up and get to the new stuff.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:16:39 PM
    Touting add-on services such as Rotten Tomatoes, and ability to link more than one Hopper in a house to link different rooms.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:16:49 PM
    How do we top the Hopper? I think David Carnoy already answered.

  • Josh Miller 1/7/2013 11:17:14 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:17:34 PM
    How do we top the Hopper? Clayton says the first thing he is to talk to the consumer about what they want.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:17:48 PM
    The buying public isn't making a gradual shift to mobile Internet, it's a full-blown sprint, he says.

    The home is moving beyond one or two TVs to smartphones, tablets, PCs, he says. The consumer is demanding its video content anywhere.
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:18:23 PM
    Dish will meet the demand for video on those mobile devices with a whole host of new features, he says.

  • Kevin Smith 1/7/2013 11:18:37 PM
    Wish they would give longtime customers, who have been with them since day one some added benefits to continue being a customer instead of most of the freebie stuff going to "first time' customers.........
  • Roger Cheng 1/7/2013 11:18:51 PM
    What they want, when they want it, and where they want it - sounds like TV Everywhere.

  • Josh Miller 1/7/2013 11:19:14 PM
