So according to your logic Dish should not charge anything for locals despite the cost that they have for the uplink, downlink from the satellite, and the cost that they pay the local broadcaster.It's apparently the greed of the content owners. As an example, if somebody is fortunate enough to get an OTA signal for free I can't figure out why their neighbor should have to pay $1, $2 or even $3 a month for the same channel delivered over satellite.
Providing locals with PTAT and Autohop is a service that I am willing to pay for. This is despite the fact that I already receive my OTA locals from both Columbus and Dayton on both of my Hopper3 receivers.
