DISH Endorses Sinclair and NAB Free Antenna Giveaway Today, DISH endorsed Sinclair Broadcast Group, the National Association of Broadcasters, Antennas Direct and TVfreedom.org for their "Broadcast TV Liberation Tour" that is raising consumer awareness of free over-the-air (OTA) local TV. Antennas Direct reports it has handed out $1 million in free OTA antennas in 60 cities. . . . DISH has embraced this approach having distributed $7 million worth of OTA antennas to affected customers this summer since Tribune Broadcasting blacked out its stations from DISH customers on June 12.
