    When I was with direct TV I could get east coast channels and west coast channels.
    Now I am with dish and would like to get the east coast ABC, CBS and NBC.
    We have lost our local ABC channel due to a dispute between dish and network provider so I don't even have ABC at all.
    Any suggestions???

    It is available on your dish equipment just not FROM dish, it would be from SOBONGO. You would only be allowed west coast networks due to the current law. (only if qualified for distants)

    I don't have AAD, but I do qualify for them, and they offered me BOTH east and west networks.

    That is because you are in the east. West coasters cannot get eastern feeds, by law.... You can give AAD-SOBONGO certain east coast addresses (as your own/ moving) to get east coast feeds in the west however.

    Yes. A friend of mine gave them an address in Jackman, Maine and got all of the feeds they needed east and west coast.
