I currently have Dish America with International package. I want to cut cost and change my programming to have only the locals. I have the VIP 722 receiver.


Is it possible? If not, whats the minimum package and the cost/month (having locals) I should have to meet any requirement?

Welcome pack at $19.99, locals only no longer available.  Dvr fee will still apply.

The $29.99 Smart Pack is the lowest cost Core Package I see as a (radio button) choice when I login to my account, but in small print to the right, I see:


Other programming options: Welcome Pack $19.99 Call 800-333-DISH (3474)


I'd suggest you phone and ask if it satisfies a minimum package for a leased 722.

It does, it's a package not an add on. For instance the Heartland package is an add-on and would not qualify to have on it's own.
