If you are a Dish Network subscriber, December 1st, you will lose your Distance Network Programming.

I wonder what Full timer RVers and Truckers will do?

Anyone have a work around?

My DTV worked on the road last year, but I rarely used it, so I sold the foldable dish.

Most everywhere I go has OTA signal, rabbit ears suited me, but I am sure that will change with the new system coming down the pike.

Ah, it's only more money...

Nothing stays the same. I got a notice this morning that AVG antivirus free will no longer be free after Jan 1 2007.

sigh.

It's been a nice run, time to pony up.

I just talked to both Dish TV & Direct TV. They both have NO idea what will happen. What they are trying to do is give local Network Programming in the area you are at.

When you are in a different state every night, it is not workable to change your account once or twice a day.

Cross country truckers have the same problem.

The court has not decided what they will allow. December 1st they are supposed to let us know.

PS: I know some folks donít think it should be legal to own a TV and have it in a RV, but others who are full time or semi-full time do enjoy watching the weather, news or a movie from time to time.

Hey, If I am using my trailer as a traveling motel room, it's blowing wind and dumping cats and dogs outside, I want the news.

Nothing wrong with having TV in an RV..

Most of the places we have camped, you can't even get "local" reception. We gave up on the TV a long time ago.

We are referring to DISH Network Satellite TV.

I think that all that will be lost are the channels that come out of New York and California that we now receive. The (local) channels that we now pay extra to get will not be effected.

The sattelite people do not know your location when you are in your r.v.

Thanks Harvey.

I donít have local channels. I have a RV account and have New York & LA networks. Our local channels in this little area carries infomercials all morning and soap operas all afternoon. I just donít want to pay for that.

Plus as we are traveling we would not be able to get it anyway. They now have targeted broadcasting.

.
The bad news: Grisoft is canceling support of AVG free version 7.1 (and earlier versions) on Jan. 15, 2007.

The good news: Grisoft is replacing it with AVG free version 7.5, which you can download now if you don't want to wait till January.

7.5 undoubtedly will support WXP and will update to Vista. Not sure, but I think it will also still work with W98, W2000 & ME.

OK. What happened?

I'm considering using a dish trucker/camper style. Maybe I didn't know what to ask when I called Dish Network. As far as I can tell, you can still get a portable dish, hook it up to the receiver you removed from your house and you are good to go.
