When I was with Dish Network about 5-7 years ago (don't remember how long ago now...), they did the same thing with Young Broadcasting. Here in Nashville we did not have ABC for almost a year. That is one reason that I left Dish Network. Also shortly after I left them, they did the same thing with the Viacom channels. Turned them off. I'm very happy with the fact that I'm now a DirecTV customer. Good luck to all those Dish Network customers in the Nashville area. My advice... put up an antenna, the signal is preaty good. Michael.
