Almost a year ago, I changed from Directv to Dish. Directv dropped our local channels and for months would not give me a break on my bill. So I changed to DISH and was PROMISED Dish would never drop my locals. In a few days, Dish IS going to drop our local channels. We depend on our local channels for news and especially weather. I only watch local channels and the sports channels. This is so ridiculous and so unfair to us elderly folks who enjoy our local channels!
