Just wanted to get peoples opinions on Dish Network's new TurboHD they are advertising. I started noticing the commercials about a week or two ago.

According to their website it is suppose to be: TurboHD offers the industry’s ONLY 100% HD programming packages. Whether you own HD or SD TVs, TurboHD will deliver the best quality picture straight to your screen – or multiple screens with select receivers. You can also take advantage of superior audio with Dolby® Digital 5.1 Surround Sound that TurboHD delivers straight to your home theater system. Additionally, DISH Network presents groundbreaking technology with Video on Demand (VOD) in 1080p – same as Blu-Ray® Disc quality that you won’t find with ANY other TV provider! TurboHD uses a cutting-edge 8PSK-Turbo code to stream more data to your satellite receiver at a faster image processing rate, which results in a superior picture and sound for all your home viewing. You won’t find this technology anywhere else!

Sounds like a lot of hype about the same old TV service that was given a new name.
