DISH network caters to TV multitaskers

dish network 6 channelsThe DISH network has decided that picture-in-picture functionality of some televisions is so passe. Try six channels on one screen, all at the same time, none overlapping the others. As a football fan, I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to have a casino-sports betting-parlor-like setup in my living room. Alas, it seems you can't choose which channels are displayed, and by the looks of the screenshot, unless you're in constant need of a daily dose of finance and stock reports, you'll be disappointed.

There was a scene in Back to the Future II where McFly's kid comes home and using voice commands chooses 6 channels to watch at once.

Dish Network had feeds of all six NBC-owned channels' olympics broadcasting during the last olympics, as well.
