If your market doesn't have a CW DISH should be giving you one on or near channel 916.
Since they claim to offer network channels in all markets, what would be the point?
If you explore the alternative that BeckiB suggested, there's a good chance you'll get more channels than DNS service would provide -- possibly even a CW or a PBS here and there.
it would be a great idea if they did bring back the distant networks. sure I can call dish and have them change my locals to my new location!!! I wonder what would happen if i'm boon docking in the desert and I can't provide a street address or a zip code or out in the mountains of CO :nono2: :rolling:
To be fair... if you're out in an RV and don't know where you are... that's a problem more than the lack of distant locals if you ask me!
I know where I am :righton: . I like to boondock in the desert a lot!!
I'm not really sure but I don't think Dish has any locals for "Boondock in the desert".
Do you get WiFi there?
Find closest town ... use USPS.gov to find the zip code.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking... if you have GPS and internet, it should be easy to find the closest zip code to switch over to those locals, even in the middle of seemingly nowhere.
Just find an address as close as possible to where you are and use that. It's not uncommon for instance, for a state or national park to have a street/mailing address that's several miles away from your actual camping location. If you're on BLM land, the nearest field office address would likely work.
You can find a zip code and a county for wherever you're at.
Did you mean wireless?
I'm not saying I'm stupid, I'm just saying I've got bad luck when it comes to thinking
sometimes I can get wifi and sometimes I don't get wifi :eek2:
I have been calling dish when ever I move around and having them switch over my locals and they do it I have called dish more than once and they have always changed my locals to my new address
Even if distant networks were returned to E*, it would probably be limited to the "big-4 + PBS".
I really hope they return That's what miss about the Charlie Chat, you call and ask about these important issues.
Legally a distant has to be one of the big 4. The PBS national feed is not a distant network.
DISH *is* delivering distant networks ... but they are doing it as part of the locals, filling in missing networks in markets without an affiliate. DISH could choose a national set of distant channels (similar to the old offering) but they have decided to carry different distants depending on the market served.
The missing distant service is one for RV/commercial vehicles.
All they would do is say no on every episode. Charlie Chats got repetitive over the years. Mostly commercials for what DISH was doing. Watching Mr Ergen and staff stumble through questions may have been entertaining ... but the answers came slower in later years.
I thought that Charlie Chat was going to be on again since Charlie's is CEO again.
Also technical chat should be added again.

I sure hope Charlie Chat returns! I really miss the chats. It was always a way to hear about new stuff coming down the pike.
There are CW affiliates in the Superstations. Have you tried getting the Superstations? There is one from 3 different time zones. Only downside is they are all SD.
