RV with DNS - who gets PBS?

    Okay, so I have an RV with a separate account that has the RV DNS channels activated.

    When I sent in the DNS form, I checked the boxes for all the SD and HD feeds that were available, including CW and PBS.

    What's happening is that I am getting everything I asked for *except* the PBS national feed, which I believe is channel 379. This channel shows an error 721, Channel Not Purchased.

    So I go back and look at the form I sent in, and it says " PBS . . .may be available depending on your location".

    I tried calling D* about this and the CSR I got was pretty useless. I will try calling back later, and I will try to get them to transfer me to the RV department, or whatever they are called. I've talked to them before and they know what to do.

    But my question is, who does or does not qualify for the PBS DNS feed? Why would location make a difference - is that an East Coast/West Coast thing? This is a West Coast account.

    Thanks for any help,

    We Full-time (presently on west coast) and have East/West DNS with PBS and haven't found any location as yet that we weren't able to receive PBS on 379.
    Now that doesn't mean that there may not be places where it won't be available for what ever reason.

    Does your bill show that you are being charged for PBS?
    It will be listed separately on the bill, worded like this (network: PBS - Mobile Monthly).
