    2020: Finding local satellite installers to do side hustle / sidework?

    I've googled / searched local satellite installers to death. Dish seemed to have killed them all locally.

    2020: Finding local satellite installers to do side hustle / sidework?

    I'm curious how one would find a local installer (who may work for Dish or DirecTV) in 2020 to do sidework / side hustle? I need to do a pole mount install, because of line of sight, for a new Bell ExpressVu system.

    Dish trying to get Disney to kick back some ESPN fees

    The one time we really want Charlie fighting the fight. Curious if Disney will try to punish Sling TV (Orange package) over this. Hoping the other streaming providers see blood in the water.

    Orby Saves the Day (or more) in the California Power Blackout

    It's hard to digest this (no politics) when I constantly read about fake news (CNN) and the conspiracy to keep Fox News off Orby. I'd like MSNBC, but I realize the carriage fee and bundling requirements of NBCUniversal would be too onerous.

    @Orby corp: Cheap channels like Buzzr, France 24, & NHK World

    Buzzr is not merely delivered as an OTA subchannel, its also on satellite and available through a stream. GSN / Game Show Network is Buzzr's competition owned by Sony and AT&T. The Weather Channel (think GSN) cost Dish too much, so they now have WeatherNation (think Buzzr). If you're rural or in...

    @Orby corp: Cheap channels like Buzzr, France 24, & NHK World

    BBC probably isn't offered because BBC America takes contractual precedence since it's part of AMC Networks. As far as Buzzr, it's FremantleMedia North America's only channel, and it's offered on Dish and now Pluto. I'll make a huge assumption that Buzzr costs very little to carry. Buzzr would...

    @Orby corp: Cheap channels like Buzzr, France 24, & NHK World

    @Orby Corporate Please consider adding the cheap seat channels like Buzzr (need my Match Game fix) and international news channels like France 24 and NHK World. I'm under the assumption carrying these international news channels wouldn't put a dent in your programming budget.

    Orby TV created to help Dish Network and DirecTV merger?

    The paranoid side of me wonders if Orby TV was created to show regulators that a merger between Dish Network and DirecTV wouldn't hurt consumers, since another satellite television provider now exists. Orby Tv, LLC in Dover, DE | Company Information & Reviews

    Orby TV OTA EPG data through satellite or local signal?

    Anyone know how the Orby boxes receive their over-the-air (local channels through antenna) EPG (electronic program guide) data. Is it through the OTA signal or via the satellite and provided by Gracenote or TiVo/Rovi? Are local logos part of Orby's EPG?
