Hi,

I was formally with Pegasus for about 5 years but last month I got switched back to Direct TV. Since I can't get any local TV stations via an antenna I was eligible for the Distant Network feeds from Direct TV. Yesterday I noticed that the PBS feed had been dropped from my channel line up. I called Direct TV and they told me that I had to sign up for local stations which are now available and are part of the "Total Choice" package in my area and I would get back my PBS local feed. The question I have is if I get the local Direct TV feeds will Direct TV take away my Distant Network feeds? I like having the Distant Network but I miss the PBS feed. Does anyone else have both of these services, both local feeds and Distant Network feeds? I'd like to hear from you id you do have both.

Thanks

Joe

The way PBS works is that if you have a local PBS available by satellite you cannot get the nation pbs feed.

As far as distant networks and locals under the current law if you qualified for distants you can keep them wether or not you get your locals. (That may change with the new law)
