great northwet
our local installer told me we could get a local channels only package for $10 a month but the rep at dish network could not find any info. I'm about 80 miles from seattle and would do it. Did this go out with the welcome pac on feb 1?:confused:

The Welcome pack + locals for $14.99 is no longer sold to new or existing subs. If you own your receivers and you are under no commitment to DISH , you can get just locals for $5.99 and pay the $6.00 no basic programming pack fee or $11.99 a month.

thanks MikeD, seems to be plenty of used hardware floating around..

You're welcome. I'm sure you're right. There will be a lot of hardware floating around after this months outrageous equipment price hike.

I thought the locals only package was no longer available? So are you saying that it is available like it was before, at $5.99 + $6 no basic package fee?

The reps I've talked to know nothing (except possibly upsell) but I'll try more roulette for a bit...

If you own your receivers and you are under no commitment to DISH , you can get just locals for $5.99 and pay the $6.00 no basic programming pack fee or $11.99 a month.

Actually you CAN still get the locals only pkg f/$10, which is those 2 elements combined for a reduced fee. They automatically did this awhile back for all locals-only subs. You can also still add the FREE PI's as well.
I know, because they did this for me & put this info on my bill...

THE Welcome pack is no longer available to new or existing subs. Any one who owns their own receivers and is not under a commitment to DISH , can get just locals by paying the no basic programming pack of $6.00 and then pay for the locals at $5.99. Whether they let you get a discount for the locals is not known ,since we had the hike of equipment fees and other changes that came after 2/1/10.

I hope you can still get locals only....saw Dish uplinked a neighboring DMA (that I cant get OTA) and maybe want to get locals only....

but have to wait if they will import the rest since its only 2 stations (CBS & FOX)
