Blocking local channels

Why  am l being charged $12 for local channels when you are blocking ABC and NBC.  l don't care about your fight to try and hold down cost.  You are charging me for something you are not delivering.  Can l get these two locals from another area while you fight it out?

Dish doesn't block the channels - the network itself does (Dish can only provide what the channel/network allows). 

You can't get a network from another location due to federal regulations. 

 

You do have the option to remove locals from your Dish package & save the $12, but you will need to have over the air tv service available in your area (& put up an antenna).

Some replies state that dish provides an antennae to customers being affected. This has been nearly a year of annoyance. Despite it being network blocking the channels, it is DISH that everyone is blaming for not working something out for its customers!!!!
