I do not sub to local (Sacramento) or HD local channels, but was getting guide data on my Vip211 on OTA locals for a month or so. But today it's back to "Digital Service". FU Dish for teasing us again then removing this feature.
while it still pisses me off... if you have a DVR it can be very useful having the local package added to your account... especially when you record 2 or more local network programs (OTA + 2x LIL!)
But I agree it should still be free, at least basic (1 or 2 days of) guide data.
