Missing Channel in DISH Anywhere Guide

What Is Happening?

A channel you normally see in the guide on your receiver does not appear on the guide in DISH Anywhere.

Why Is It Happening?

This issue is typically caused by a communication issue between DISH Anywhere and the receiver, or an issue with the receiver itself.

How Do I Fix It?

Resolve this issue by completing the steps below:

  1. On your DISH Receiver, do any error messages appear?
