It is available as I recently talked to upper Dish management about it. Where to find it I personally don't know because I don't want it. I am fine with changing Service Address when I change spot beams for my Hopper 3.
According to the Dish management person, DNS is limited to RVs with Wallys. You can have Locals at your home base but the Wally is either Locals or DNS, not both. That is in line with the FCC regulations about getting the exemption for DNS. Your RV has to be registered every year, meaning a copy of the RV registration (or semi-truck) sent to Dish.
Perhaps the equipment requirement, a Wally, would make the DNS option available.
Distant Locals aside, if I just set my address to an LA address would I be able to receive LA locals nationwide or would they be restricted to the LA area because they're supposed to be just my local channels?
It'd be great to get a list of the locals that are broadcast nationwide on Dish.We switched our locals to Jacksonville, FL when we were in St. Mary's, GA, and then didn't change them again until we reached Jonestown, PA and couldn't get the 77 sat on EA through the trees and switched to the WA sats. While we still had the St Mary's address, we even watched the Jacksonville locals with DishAnywhere streaming from our upstate NY vacation cottage Hopper that's also using the EA sats. The Jacksonville DMA is CONUS beamed on 77 in HD, as are several other DMA's.
Why would Sacramento be on an eastern arc sat?My current list of CONUS beamed DMA's:
- Bluefield, WV (HD) 77
- Cincinnati, OH (HD) 77
- Charlottesville, VA (HD) 77
- Chicago, IL (HD) 72.7
- Columbus, GA (HD) 77
- Davenport, IA (HD) 77
- Denver, CO (HD) 72.7
- Evansville, IN (HD) 77
- Ft Wayne, IN (HD) 61.5
- Jacksonville, FL (HD) 77
- Lexington, KY (HD) 77
- Lima, OH (HD) 77
- Little Rock, AR (HD) 77
- Los Angeles, CA 72.7
- Louisville, KY(HD) 77
- New York, NY (HD 72.7
- Paducah, KY(HD) 77
- Sacramento, CA (HD) 72.7
- Springfield, MO (HD) 77
The only DMA I've personally verified recently is Jacksonville, FL. It worked fine from Florida to NY.
Why would Sacramento be on an eastern arc sat?
I agree, and after reviewing my sources, I think that was a leftover typo from a previous list since I can't verify it now from current sources. So delete Sacramento's 72.7 listing...
Also an apparent typo, Los Angeles and Sacramento are both CONUS beamed on 119, not 110.
