That sounds convoluted. Maybe that is how I am getting the locals still...hmmm.It's been discussed in the thread I linked back in post number 2. Apparently, this is part of some type of Loyal Customer Bonus Pack that Dish authorized on certain individual subscribers' accounts. So, not a free preview, since not everyone gets it. I certainly am not getting it. Even different subscribers with the same programming package as each other may not necessarily both get it. So, if you are one of the subscribers who does get Bloomberg with a package that does not normally include it, then consider yourself lucky.
