Edit (8/13/2009): for the benefit of anyone coming to the party late:
1) As of 8/1/2009 the Platinum HD add-on for $10/month no longer exists.
2) The channels that were part of Platinum HD should now be free for any Dish Network sub, in spite of anything the Dish Network website says or Dish Network CSRs might tell you. Since you can no longer buy "Platinum HD" it is now part of the Dish Network HD package. (This is NOT JUST FOR NEW SUBSCRIBERS).
3) Anyone subscribing to any Dish Network HD package should be able to the get the former Platinum HD channels for free.
4) THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THIS MAY BE TURBOHD SUBS who did not subscribe to the Platinum HD add-on prior to 8/1/2009.
