Rumor Alert - Dish to offer all locals!
I dont know if this is 100% legit but I did get it from two sources and to me it sounds like BIG NEWS so thought I would pass it along...
Great News!! - You have no reason to lose a customer to their locals again.
DISH Network has officially made an agreement to provide locals to all customers in the U.S. within the next 2 years. DISH Network is working aggressively to make this happen sooner than later so all customers will be able to receive locals.
Not only will every household have access to locals, but customers who do not have locals in their area will have access to distant locals. Although we have not determined what locals customers will receive we can guarantee that they will be available within the next 2 years.
As we learn more on progress towards this goal, we will provide updates. Stay Tuned!Scott

Yes Scott I think you are right. Yesterday, I received a reply from Dish Network on a question I sent in about adding the other 5 HD locals available here in Los Angeles. The CS rep said they are working on something Very BIG that will make all Dish Network subscribers Very Happy regarding their SD & HD Locals. If I can retrive the email, I will post it.

I think this is about a potential agreement with congress that would allow Dish to offer Distant Network channels again if they promise to provide local channels to 100% of the country within two years. However, I don't think Dish will be required to offer ALL HD channels available in a local market.......although I would certainly be in favor of that!

Now wake me when Dish gets the CW, PBS, and MNTV up in all markets those are in in HD.AT250, 622 and 612
My Very Basic Wish List: subchannel guide info! Also, yank sports out of the regular packs and pas the savings on to us (and the cost on to those that watch).
