As you should all be aware by now, the sat companies are diligently pursuing new technology that they hope will eliminate those of us who enjoy their services for free. They are systematically switching channels to the new N3 format. We will continue to experience freezing and even more frustrating blank channels. When their process is complete it is uncertain as to whether or not we will be able to gain access. Those who scanned BEV channels found that they had to switch to DISH channels. Now DISH channels are being converted bit by bit. Let's all hope for the best.
