Note: On December 1st, 2006, Dish Network was required under Federal Court Order to end distant network service due to a lawsuit by CBS and Fox which argued multiple violations of SHVA by selling distant networks to customers who were ineligible. This ruling did not effect distribution of PBS or Superstations, but distant network service was ended and channels were only available as locals in their respective home markets. National Program Service which also sold to c-band customers bought transponder service and started their own distant network service to Dish customers which had to meet very strict criteria. The New York and LA networks were initially replaced with Atlanta and San Francisco networks and NPS sold distant networks to Dish Customers until February 25, 2014 when the service was ended by NPS.
