    As a new DishNetwork user I have a few questions.
    Does this mean the "local" options will be ruled out in 2002 ?Do the local network affiliates have to request the dish company carry the signal ? I have an external antenna but the distant networks (50 miles away ) are crappy reception. Can someone can break this situation down for me?

    What the DBS providers are fighting is not having a choice on which locals channels they must carry..If you are getting your local main affiliates now, you will continue to receive them..What Dish and direct tv do not want to have to do is be forced to carry local independant channels...They want to have the choice..Remember DBS is competing against cable and will not pull the plug on the major network local affiliates...
