    AM21 NBC New York

    Correct me if I am wrong ...(like I really had to ask for that) but didn't when the AM-21 first came out do a real over the air scan and Direct turned it off for the database system? Point being , why can't they turn that feature back on in the software .... and why was it even removed?

    AM21 support has ended.

    Didn't the AM21 used to scan for OTA channels instead of relying on the datebase? ... if so can't they just turn that feature back on and let us fend for ourselves?

    Ergen touts chances of a DirecTV-Dish Network merger winning approval

    why not just form a partnership of the 2 services that markets the local channels for the different dma's? just think of the bandwidth that would be freed up if the locals were only uplinked once! it could be the start of further partnerships

    I concur regarding the ota signals ... sports programming does cost but it is also in an additional tier, so if that price goes up then the price of that tier should go up accordingly, but pricing should be based on the number of subscribers in that regional market that are not blacked out not...

    VOOM Goes BOOM - update Dish Drops all 15 VOOM Channels

    remember ... Voom is shutting down domestically ... they are alive and well (for the time being) internationally, thus possibly still leaving a crack (however small) in the door for a possible future reappearance. Also if they are still programming internationally wouldn't they still keep their...
