I am new to dishnetwork and am getting a 721 install. Is there anything anyone can recommend to me prior to install that can help me get some kind of network programming (dont care which market) so that I might be able to menu/record stations like fox,cbs,nbc,abc and their programming that cannot be had on other cable stations. A link to a site that helps people do this would be much appreciated before I make a mistake. thanks

You could apply for waivers, just contact the your local affilates via phone or email or even in person. If waivers get denied you could always 'move' to a different location. (ie, change service address, keep billing address)

Where do you live? Dish covers 44 tv markets now. Perhaps you are in one of them already. Or maybe you are in a white area. Have you gone to the Dish Network web site (Locals) and seen what you might qualify for?

See ya

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!
