This happened on all 3 of my receivers. A 622 and 2 211's. I did nothing. Just one day it was gone. Customer service said I never should have had it since I don't subscribe to locals. Why should I when I get them in HD free. I am in the Columbus Ohio area. Does anybody have any thoughts?

You need to sub to lacals to get them. Perhaps it was a mistake that they caught.

Dish's policy is that if you want their guide data, you need to pay for locals, no matter where you get them from. You can still watch OTA without paying, just no guide data.
