    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 12, 2005--EchoStar Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:DISH) today announced its DISH Network satellite TV service now offers NFL Network as part of the America's Top 120 programming package.

    Deal With Dish Helps NFL Net Gain Yardage

    Littleton, Colo. — Bolstering its sports lineup, EchoStar Communications Corp. last week added NFL Network to its Dish Network “America's Top 120” programming package.

    The NFL Network agreement — which put the service in a total of more than 35 million homes — followed Dish's deal to carry College Sports Television and the July addition of Paul Allen's Sporting News TV to the No. 2 DBS player's ITV lineup.

    Officials said that if NFL Network — which already holds the one-year mark with 22 million — can secure 2.5 million more U.S. subscribers by November, it will surpass Turner Network Television (37.5 million) as the channel with the most subscribers at the end of its second year of existence...
