If as a "grandfathered" customer you choose to keep your Distant Network Signals (in my case NY) and drop your Local Network Singals (in my case LA) do you still get to keep your non network local signals? It work seem to be the case but I do not want to open a can of worms with the Satellite provider just yet.

In your case, by keeping the New York distant local package, you will no longer have access to any of the Los Angeles local channels.

I understood as a "grandfathered" sub you had to chose either the distant network siginals (DNS) or the local network siginals. If - derwinO - is correct I would love it.
As I said I am confused. When I picked the DNS option the CSR told me I would immediately lose the locals. That was more than a month ago and nothing has happened. I am still getting everything I got for the past 9 years. That is why I am asking here rather than opening a can of worms with the Satellite provider now.
While I can not get OTA locals there are, of course, ways to get the them which should not be discussed. I have been asked by an other sub what I will be getting which is the reason for my question.

As noted I did infact choose DNS - NY. I guess I will just wait and see what happens. There is always the other subs "Plan B" .
