I understand Dish's position. I think t is criminal for local stations to charge for something that is free over the air. Dish, other satellite and cable providers really give locals more viewers and grater advertising exposure and they expect subscribers to pay. Hurry up and mske a deal.

I have dish at two houses and I am definitely cancelling my plan and switching to a provider that can provide this access (which is all of the other providers!). Only Dish has dropped CBS. I am a Dish customer, not a CBS customer - I pay Dish. I expect my provider to provide this access and I would never have signed up with Dish if I had known this was a possible occurrence. Am I the only one who feels this way?
