This is from a thread in the 622 forum. I would assume the 211 is the same.

If you want the Program Guide for OTA channels, you gotta pay the $5/mo (or whatever) for the locals.
I guess it depends on the release of your software for the 211. Originally I did not have it on my 211. With the release of L3.41 a while back, I started getting it. Release L3.42 removed it again. But then Dish for some reason put L3.41 back and I currently get my local OTA listings. Who knows what will happen next. I think it is nitpicky that that don't provide it. Your paying a minumum of $50 a month, probably more and they won't give you the listings unless you suscribe to those stations. I guess that's what my TV guide is for.
