Think about it logically;
Dish Pro LNBF's, would cost way more.
Dish Pro Plus LNBF's, would cost way more.
Dish Pro switch's, would cost way more.
Dish Pro Plus Switch's, would cost way more.
Dish Pro Plus Seperators would be required, therefore extra costs.
Obtaining a licence to use DP & DPP, would incur extra costs.
Who picks up the extra costs involved. Bell TV.
Whereas with Legacy Equipment;
LNBF's cost pennies.
SW21's are cheap.
SW44's are cheap. (Lots are refurbs).
Extra Cable is required.
Extra Connectors are required.
Who save money, Bell TV.
It is the Installer or Installation Company that has to pay for the extra Cable and Connectors.
It is Win Win for Bell TV, it costs them less and the fact it costs the Installers more is not their problem, they get a fixed price per job anyway.
Most Installers would love to see Dish Pro (Plus) but I think if it happens it will be a long way away. They talked about implementing DP/DPP 4 years ago, the Techs are still waiting.
If they ever bring in DP/DPP, you can be almost gauranteed that the rates to the installers will drop, again.
