With Dish, you just contact Dish and change your Service Address which will give you Locals in the area you are.

We really don't care what city so we only change the Service Address when we move out of the spot beam. Example, we were using Washington DC locals in the Hersey PA area.

We use Dish Chat because there is no talking/listening problem between me and the CSR.

I use a scrip message:
"I am an RVer and have just move to a new location. I need to change my Service Address (only) to 197 Wheeler Rd, Florida, NY 10921 and have the Locals changed to that location. Leave the Billing Address as it is."

This has worked well for a couple of years now and usually takes only a couple of minutes.

With DirecTV I would get DNS. You can get DNS or Locals, not both at the same time. You get either East Coast or West Coast depending on your billing address.

I have heard that DirecTV is not as easy for changing Service addresses and the associated Locals.

Minor correction - when you have DirecTV and you are in your local area, you get both locals and whatever DNS service you get (East coast or West coast). When you travel out of your local area, you only get DNS.

According to FCC Regulations, you are not allowed to have Locals and DNS at the same time. DNS is for people who cannot receive Locals. Perhaps DirecTV is not enforcing this but this is where Dish got in trouble several years ago. and lost the ability to have DNS for a couple of years.

I have a Toms River NJ service address and due to location have free DNS for the big 4 NY networks. I get them everywhere I travel. While in the NY area, I also get my local channels.
