This is really annoying that Dish doesn't offer ABC in Santa Cruz. Comcast offers KGO-7 and DirecTV offers KGO-7, but Dish Network doesn't offer it. It can't be some DMA rule since both Comcast and DirecTV are able to offer that channel to that market.

Direct offers ABC distant in Santa Cruz, according to their website. There is no local ABC on Direct for Santa Cruz.

No, you get a localish feed for ABC, not the LA version. From the DirecTV site for a santa cruz zip:

ABC KGO 7
NBC KSBW 8
PBS KCAH 25
FOX KCBA 35
CBS KION 46
UNI KSMS 67

Unfortunately, no HDs. If I still lived in Santa Cruz, I'd 'move' to san jose and get the San Jose DMA stations. Many more stations and includes HD signals for 4 channels.

Hmmm. I cannot get to that page. I get a blank page. But when I put a Santa Cruz address in the DNS search, I get availability of ABC DNS, not the others.

Mitch
go to directv.com, choose 'Programming' on the left nav menu and choose "Local Channels", type in a Santa Cruz zip, such as 95062, and it will come up with the list.

as has already been suggested, the best way for the original poster to deal with this issue is to "move" to some adjoining market. basically this entails calling up dish and lying about where you live in order to receive locals from a different market.
you'll get it by doing the above

Gawd I hate to be so uninformed, as well as deceitful, but would an address with a ZIP code of 95123 work?
yes, that is a san jose zip code

Here is an ethical way to get ABC from your area:
https://www.mydistantnetworks.com/
$2.50/mo gets you San Fran and Atlanta ABC if you qualify. Since there is no ABC in your area you probably will qualify.
unfortunately, Santa Cruz doesn't qualify.
