DISH Network HD upgrade
August 1, 2008
This new functionality is part of DISH Network’s expansion in high definition services, which includes the rollout of TurboHD, the industry’s first 100 per cent, all-HD suite of programming packages. DISH Network has also launched 17 new national HD channels, surpassing its goal of reaching 100 national HD channels five months ahead of schedule. DISH Network now offers up to 114 national HD channels and plans to expand that line-up to 150 channels by the end of 2008, made possible by the recent launch of Echo XI, the most powerful satellite in the company’s fleet.
