    The following is from an email which will be going out Monday to all Dish Network retailers from Charlie Ergen regarding Distant Networks.

    While SatelliteGuys.US was the first to post this information, we encourage all other forums to spread the word and encourage our members to write congress and tell them we want a choice. We do have a powerfull voice, lets use it!

    In addition the www.savemychannels.com website is now active.

    Done... Is this even supposed to be public knowledge yet? I guess better sooner than never.

    NOT a Dish guy, but sent it anyway!
    Let's hope it has a greater effect than the huge sums of money special interests send to my CA. Reps....

    Thats great! DirecTV customers should also do their part, while this is a Dish Network issue if DIsh loses the distant networks then its only a matter of time before the broadcasters go after DirecTV.

    Thanks everyone for doing their part!

    No longer a dish customer but I think people should have a choice and not have to be told what station you have to watch.

    This is really bad for people in my area that can't get their locals yet. I live in the wheeling wv locals area. I sure hope they get my locals online fast before football season because i may be without networks.
