It will have the OTA module "soon". Currently AutoHop only works on the four PTAT network channels during prime time. I suppose as long as DISH has the information they could extend it to OTA received channels, PTAT content recorded manually or even non Hopper receivers.
Sort of on topic, sort of an aside--Why doesn't the hopper have an ota module? Then even if a station pulls its signal over a desire to have the autohop feature disabled, ota viewers could continue to autohop. Or is there some reason that autohop won't work on ota?
DISH generally doesn't support channels not carried on their system ... if the Gannett stations go down EPG will not be available for the OTA reception. With the receiver "not knowing" what program was on at that time it would not match the AutoHop information.
