I just moved a few days ago and had Dish come out and reinstall my Dish6000 and PVR501. While installing everything the guy told me that Dish will be putting on Toledo Locals in the near future. If this is true that would be great news but I am pretty skeptical about the source.

I know if the merger goes through all the locals are suppose to be picked up but that certainly would not occur for at least a year.

Anyone have any info?

Sorry Gary, there have been no reprts of Dish pick up Toledo and being that it's DMA #68 a merger is the only shot

Waco is #94 and Dish is adding it. It seems that they have extra capacity on that spotbeam or some influential Senator is from Waco.

I believe that would be a certain President who has a ranch in Crawford, which is within the Waco DMA.

That's because the spot that it's on is focused right on Waco

Why would E* put Waco's locals on instead of Austin. Austin would make much more business sense as it is a much larger market. It seems political to me.
