    Can you just keep locals or distants with Directv and pay some $5.00 access fee? I knew with Dish you could but wasn't sure on Directv.

    In generall...

    No... Once you have access to your "true" locals... you will lose access to the DNS feeds.

    There some exceptions to that rule (especially until the HR20 is released).

    I know you either have one or the other. My dad has distant networks with no locals option. Can he keep them without any other directv programming package?

    not really...he has to have a "base" package. You can check into Directv's new "family" package, this is now only $29.99 monthly
