Okay, here's my issue .... I live in western Alaska. Because of my location, I cannot get the Anchorage spot beam locals and I am responsible for my own installs and equipment. I have a buddy that used to be a DTV installer, now does IT work on the Slope but between the 2 of us, we can usually fix any problems. When I first switched from Dish to DTV, I had 4 dishes: A 6 footer at 101, 2 4-footers at 119 and 110 and a 30" at 103, I think. About 5 years ago, I had to switch to the 48 inch AK/HI dish and a triple LNB aimed at 99/101/103. Signal strengths range from the high 60s into the low/mid 90s and I have very few issues. Because it is aimed so low, I never lose picture during snow, once in a while due to rain. When I first became a DTV customer, I had distant locals from both east and west coast feeds but when they went to all HD, the east coast feeds went away and now I get the LA feeds. Bear in mind, I am so far west, I cannot get the Anchorage feeds. I am a huge Seattle Seahawks fan and have ST for that reason. Here's the problem: Now that LA has two teams, the LA stations are going to carry the Rams and Chargers. BUT...because I am in Alaska, ST will not let me watch the Seahawks when they are on Anchorage networks even though I can't get those feeds. Since a lot of Alaskans are Seahawks fans, Anchorage stations will carry Seattle almost every week. I spent a lot of time in Seattle last year so I only missed one game on TV but that's not going to be the case this year. I called DTV CS last year and was told their hands were tied by FCC. I called again a bit ago and got the same answer. Can that possibly be true?
