From Dish Network. A facts blast to all retailers and subs.



We are excited to offer HD local network programming in the Greenville, Huntsville, Knoxville, Greensboro,
Jackson and Mobile DMAs, effective April 24, 2008. With these HD local launches, there will be some equipment
requirement changes for both new and existing HD customers residing in these DMAs.
New Customers
Effective April 24, 2008, new HD/MPEG-4 customers residing within one of the DMAs listed in the table below who
would like to receive their HD national programming and/or their HD local network programming will require BOTH
a DISH 500 AND an additional antenna (pointed at the 61.5 orbital location). R*Connect will indicate this
configuration.
In addition the directive informs existing customers must order an install of a 61.5 wing dish to receive LIL in HD.

They need more than a dish 500 and an additional antenna. if they did that then we would loose our RSN (due to it only being in 129)

No. Since people in these markets will be pointing antennas to 61.5° they are moving RSNs to 61.5° so that they can receive their HD RSN when they subscribe to one of the AT packages. Most people subscribe to AT100plus and higher.

See ya
