Does this work in any market anywhere in the country with a Dish Network Subscription?

I've been to NYC receantly and...

"DISH is not available in this area for live stream viewing, but you can continue to enjoy episodes on demand"

I should add that NBC works fine, but this too is only in a very select few markets. CBS requires a subscription. FOX worked but only allows live viewing during Primetime.

I've been using the ABC app since my local has been blocked on Dish (Hearst.) While I can watch shows on demand after they air, the live stream stopped working a few weeks into the Hearst battle, so maybe you are/were in a Hearst ABC market...

OP, what's your local TV market's ABC station's calls , you might be in a market impacted by the Hearst/Dish dispute.

It may be a case of ABC blocking IP addresses in your area because of a dispute. This has happened in past disputes of all sat and cable co vs. content provider. It really stinks. If so, use a VPN and select a server in a different far away city with no dispute and see if it works. This usually works fine for most people.
