Dan,
Where you say, "purchase a OTA through them," are you referring to an antenna?
If so, I do not believe DISH currently offers off-air antennas. You can purchase one through Radio Shack, Lowe's, or many online stores. www.antennasdirect.com is a good off-air antenna online source.

Correct, it mounts on either your rooftop, or in your attic. If you live close enough to the towers, you may be able to use a very small indoor antenna.

Once you have the antenna, you need a ATSC digital tuner to receive the digital signal. The DISH receivers are set up to connect to your antenna, and provide the ATSC digital tuner. It would integrate with the rest of your DISH programming.

Begin by going to www.antennaweb.org, enter your zip code, and find out what size/type of antenna you need to receive the stations you want to receive.
