I think I've looked pretty thoroughly through Dish Networks' Sports packages, but could someone correct me if I'm wrong?

It appears that the only way to get Fox Soccer Channel is through the 250 package or higher. D* offers it through their Sports Pack, but it doesn't look like Dish has this same option. Am I just missing this, or am I reading things correctly?

I'm looking to cut back on our bill a bit, and I was hoping to keep FSC. Thanks in advance.

With the Wally, you need to have an external hard drive attached and formatted to activate the second satellite tuner.

You can also add two OTA channels by attaching the external OTA dual tuner dongle (I can't find it on the AirTV.net site, but there are some on eBay for $28) Be sure it does not have a detachable USB cable but has about a 10 inch permanently attached USB cable. Dish has one that is identical except the case and cable are black and the price is about $50.

Bzzt. Small error there. The second tuner works when connected to a DPP/DPH dish regardless of the external hard drive being attached or not, even if you have not called Dish to pay the one time DVR fee. It is limited to only downloading the guide and updates, but it is present. Also, RVers/Outdoor users like the poster above that are using tailgaters/playmakers etc. (except those with trav'lers or manually aimed DPP/DPH dishes) are limited to one tuner, regardless of the EHD being present or not.
