For the people you love the old classic TV shows, Dish is unique compared to Direct as Dish carries diginets. I was checking the list of general entertainment ones online today. Out of the nearly 30 listed, Dish has quite a few. METV, Grit, Laff, Bounce, Comet, Get tv, and Buzzr There are a few more I would like to see if Dish could get an agreement with others like Antenna TV, THIS, Decades, Cozi, Retro, etc. But we are lucky to have this many. They are probably inexpensive to add and there will probably be few disputes with them. It isn't for everyone. It is a special nitch and I hope Dish can add more in the future. The older people love channels like METV and Antenna TV. We all grew up with those shows.
