Well, I got my east and west coast feeds back. It seems an existing satellite equipment supplier expanded their business on December 1st to include providing networks to qualified customers. We won't discuss where the "seed money" may have come from. The operator seemed to indicate, under questioning, that they will provide service as long as they are still in business or until I cancel. I would imagine, if Echostar gets friendly legislation, they would re-emerge as a network provider and this new company would cease.
In any case, as a legitimately qualified customer, I now have my networks back without switching providers, re-programing my in-motion antenna or purchasing new equipment. Just in time to head for Blythe CA.  The downside is that the programing info is barely keeping up. Anything more than 1.5 hours ahead reads "info not available".
One nice benefit is; I don't have to hear about New York politics in the news promos. My life was getting boring. Now with Atlanta and San Francisco, I have all new anchor ladies to look at and different (regional) commercials. I can now watch how the other corners of the U.S.A. live. Nice change!

Dick, Which satellite does your dish point at, 110 or 119... I've been asking them about service on 110, but it appears they only use 119.  I prefer the other programming on 110 to that on 119 so... Well, you can see my problem

All the stuff I watch (including previous networks and now, the new sublet networks-east & west) are on 119. As an RV'er with both single and dual LNB's a single satelite keeps it simple for me. The KVH Tracvision in-motion antenna has a switch to change to 110 if I needed it.  Since sometimes I'm under trees and have to dig out the portable antenna, keeping everything on 119 works best for me.

A followup to my first post: The programing has caught up so I can see ahead. The only downside is the networks are no longer listed next to the "other TV channels" we watch prior to prime-time. Oh well. Life is rough.  ;)
