    Newbie question. I have DNS programming from CBS and ABC. My question is that if I add the local channels from my area at some point will I lose the DNS service from those networks ? I have the east coast and west coast feed from those networks .

    What markets locals are you adding? How long have you had DNS? Did you have the DNS stations before the locals were launched in your area? The way it works is its stated that if you had DNS feeds before the LIL launched in your market, you are grandfathered in and are able to keep both. Even with that, its not 100% for sure that DirecTV will let you keep both. I think the chances are much better if you had DNS before locals were launched in your market.

    How do I get local channels OTA? I have a genie 54 and used to have an AM21 years ago. It hasn't worked in a few years but is there a new version? I'm aware the AM21N is out of production. What is DTV's plan moving forward?
