OTA EPG without Locals

I've tried to find the answer to this but can't seem to find anything recent so here goes.  I have obsolete VIP722k receivers with OTA modules installed which have worked quite well over the years.  I am also paying $12/month for locals through Dish.  I rarely watch the Dish locals so my question is if I drop Dish Locals will the EPG still populate the OTA stations with guide data.

Good evening, navodeo. The OTA channels have their OTA guide information provided by the channel owner. Not all channels choose to provide this information, however, you would  be able to see if and when the channel does in the Guide. Your VIP722k supports this feature.
