Well atleast they got my area correct. I on the edge of the Fort Smith,ARK/Tulsa,OK, DMA. (Just barely in Fort Smith,ARK DMA on the oklahoma side..) But the SV channels are most of the Tulsa,ok market which is correct here. UPN and WB are not on the list, But they are pretty new, So I didnt expect that at all. I hope Dish offer the SV channels.

If it were mine to rewrite, I'd write it like this:

1) If a station is in the position to be able to block reception of distant network signals, that station is significantly viewed and can be sold to that subscriber without the consent of the TV station.

2) Any station that is considered to be providing a grade B signal intesity signal to a subscriber is significantly viewed and can be sold to the subscriber.

And of course:

3) All LP and CA stations shall be carried upon station request unless their content duplicates an existing signal provided to all subscribers in the station's market.

(Again, a complete reversal of the true rules where it is 100% up to the satellite carrier if a LP signal is carried.)

If (in our perfect world) #2 goes in to effect I would add "If a satellite carrier provides any local station to a subscriber that subscriber must receive ALL local analog or digital only station that has Grade B coverage to the subscriber's community."

Back to reality in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

The way I feel about all of this, if I can pull the channel in with an antenna, then I should be able to get it via satellite, cable, jack in the box, etc... I think I am almost to the point of buying an OTA antenna and buying myself a OTA HDTV STB (because I am starting to not like the 811), plug it into my open componet and cancel Dish Networks locals. Use only the DTV stations so I have crystal clear picture and be done with it.
Dish 811
SW: P380
Hardware ID: LADD-N
Boot Strap Version: 1014
Two Dish 301s
RCA/Dish Network 40" Widescreen HDTV
RCA RT2600 DD5.1, DTS, DPL 1-2 Surround Sound System

I now receive local NY channels on 380-388 as well as the west coast channels. I also receive the same local NY channels on 880-901.

Living in NY, if I choose to keep non-locals on 380-388, will the NY locals be disconnected on channels 880-901 too.

Thanks and appreciation for any help.
