HI,
I am hoping I can get some guidance from those of you in the Sherman/Aroostook County area that have Dish Network.

We have Dish at our camp. We currently have the 120 channel package. I need to be sure that we can get the NFL games (mainly Patriots) when we are at our camp.

Are the games shown on the normal local channels? I am not sure if I need a special NFL package or not.

I'd call dish but the last time I called they told me that my husband would be able to watch the Bruin's play off game and when we arrived we did not get it!!

Any input would be greatly appreciated. I don't upgrading to a package with more channels...I just need to make sure I have the channels that Football plays on!!!

Thanks!

you now can get local channels in Aroostook with Dishnetwork.
You will get FOX and CBS out of Presque Isle and NBC and ABC out of Bangor.
The PI channels carry the Patriots as the local game. Only time you will miss a game is when they are on NFL network unless that's part of your package.

I have had both, but think DTV is way better for football coverage.
