No, E* goes by the nielson DMA (Designated Market Area) listings. To my knowledge if your DMA is offered at all that's all your gonna get. And it may not be HD. Punch in your ZIP code on the E* web site to see if your DMA is carried. Cable probably gets away with it because you may live in a SHORT market where your DMA is not covered by all major networks. Cable probably signed some carriage agreement with a neighboring DMA to pick up any lacking channel. Like where I live I have no CBS channel so I had to put up a large OTA antenna to get CBS from another market.
The real issue is that dish is no longer able to carry distant networks. Where you are located, Atlanta could have been your local at Chattanooga was a distant, but Dish can no longer offer such a service and they are therefore stuck just giving you your local station as-is.

Going the ATSC route may be a good solution to your problem.
