    It's been a few summers since Ive downgraded to locals only, so I was hoping I could get some feedback in this forum before I called dish. Basically, in the past I called to drop my main package and carry locals only. We load up on recordings to get us through the summer. Plus, like most families, we have a lot going on in the summer, so watching tv isn't a priority.

    My current programming:

    America's Top 200

    HD Solo Receiver

    HD Solo Receiver

    DVR Service


    IN THE PAST I was able to drop to:

    Locals: $5.99
    DVR: $6.00
    FEE: ??? (Misc fee for not having package)


    Does dish still allow this????

    Does anyone know the price per STB they will charge me?

    Can't do locals-only anymore, a 'core' package is required. Best bet is the Welcome Pack with locals for $14.99.

    Are the HD solos leased or owned?

    I'm not familiar with the welcome package. I don't remember seeing it on the dish website.

    My dish solo's are leased.

    Welcome pack: $14.99
    dvr $6.00
    Solo $7.00
    Solo $7.00

    Total 34.99?????
