fpmtngal Posted June 16, 2020 Report Share Posted June 16, 2020 I'm confused about what Dish channels my antenna will receive - I've seen comments about western arc and eastern arc satellites and what antennas can see which sats. Background: I've been with DirecTV for 20 years and was grandfathered in to the DNS at the house I'm now full-time and when I disconnected the house, I continued to receive the east and west coast feeds until June 1st, yes I got the email so was expecting it. My current set-up is a Winegard G2+ antenna with an H23 receiver. I'm a full-time RVer and was thinking that I might as well switch to Dish, since the main reason I was staying with Direct was the east/west coast networks. I know I would need a Wally receiver (don't care about DVR - I don't watch much TV to begin with and have never bothered with DVRs in the past). Do I need to replace my Winegard G2+ antenna if I change to Dish Network? I travel quite a bit so would be changing my local channels a lot, and would need to be able to receive eastern and western channels depending on where I happen to be. I've gotten the impression reading various threads here that I might need to get an X1 antenna, but since I don't understand half of what I read in the various other threads, I don't know why. Can someone explain about why I might need an X1 antenna over the G2+? Also, since I rarely stay in any one place longer than 2 months, can I change the local channels every month or perhaps twice a month? .
