Dish Network will be adding local Topeka channels in High Def soon

DISH NETWORK INCREASES HD LOCAL MARKET COVERAGE AND ANNOUNCES SUMMER AND FALL LAUNCH PLANS


Englewood, Colo., June 30, 2008 – DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH), the nation’s third largest pay-TV provider and the digital transition leader, today announced the addition of high definition (HD) local channels in Grand Rapids, Mich. and Memphis, Tenn. DISH Network now offers HD locals in 61 markets reaching more than 68 percent of U.S. TV households.

DISH Network also recently disclosed plans to add 22 HD local markets throughout the summer and fall. These markets include:
  • Abilene, Texas
  • Madison, Wisc.
  • Albany, N.Y.
  • Myrtle Beach, S.C.
  • Beaumont, Texas
  • Omaha, Neb.
  • Chattanooga, Tenn.
  • Quincy, Ill.
  • Columbia-Jefferson, Mo.
  • Sherman-Ada, Texas, Okla.
  • Des Moines, Iowa
  • South Bend, Ind.
  • Fargo, N.D.
  • Syracuse, N.Y.
  • Greenville, N.C.
  • Topeka, Kan.
  • Joplin, Mo.
  • Waco, Texas
  • Lansing, Mich.
  • Wichita Falls, Texas
  • Lincoln, Neb.
  • Wilkes-Barre, Penn.
“Earlier this year, we started delivering on our commitment by adding new HD local markets and offering more national HD channels; the launch of Grand Rapids, Memphis and our additional 22 HD markets demonstrates that we are aggressively moving forward with plans to reach 100 HD local markets and 100 national HD channels,” said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “Throughout the remainder of the year, DISH Network will continue adding a variety of HD services – local markets, national channels, On Demand and Pay-Per-View – so our subscribers can enjoy the best technology, value and programming.”

DISH Network offers new customers the opportunity to upgrade for free to a dishHD DVR receiver like the ViP722™ -- which recently received the top-ranking Editors’ Choice awards from both CNET and PC Magazine. The ViP722 is a dual-tuner HD DVR that operates two televisions in separate rooms and offers up to 500 hours of storage capacity allowing customers to pause, rewind and fast forward their favorite TV programming.

Qualified new DISH Network customers who sign up with a 24-month commitment will also receive three months of free programming (a $120 value), a free dishDVR like the ViP722 and free installation (a $49.99 value).

KTMJ Fox 43 is supposed to have their digital over the air broadcast soon. Haven't heard anything about it lately, though.

I only subscribe to Cox on the basic tier for $15 a month. I only watch network television anyway so I refuse to pay cable and satellites inflated prices for channels I could care less about.

I emailed them about 2 weeks ago and they responded stating with the new buyout, they won't be digital OTA until January or so. Sucks as they are the only thing keeping me from dropping cable all together.

Arrrrggghhhh!!!! That really, really, really sucks!! I was hoping to be able to watch football on Fox in HD this season.

Well, I guess I can hope that Dish Network gets it done soon. However, from what I have read on some forums, there is no exact date as to when each area will be done and there is no guarantee that all the channels will be digital.

I get the HD feed of Fox on my basic Cox service. The Qam tuner picks it up. 116-1
