Happy Friday!

House lawmakers took the lid off some legislation that will require satellite providers to deliver local channels via a single dish. As you may know, in some cities, Dish Network requires a second dish to receive all local channels so this new legislation is pretty much aimed at Dish. Read more about it HERE.

Yesterday, Echostar published some news releases containing information about new local channel launches. You can see a list of those releases HERE.

Lastly, as we posted yesterday, the users manual for the High Definition DirecTivo is now available for download. More about that HERE.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to set your clocks forward for Daylight Savings Time!
