Dish Brings Local Channels to Augusta, Ga.
Posted 17 June 2004 - 09:02 AM
This is the first time local TV channels are available on satellite TV in the Augusta area, providing an alternative to local cable TV service. DISH Network now offers local channels as part of its new Digital Home Advantage. Starting at $29.99 per a month, this promotion offers customers free installation for up to four TVs, with no commitment and no hardware to buy and includes more than 60 popular TV channels such as ESPN, Discovery and Nickelodeon, plus local Augusta TV channels.
DISH Network has frozen the lowest all digital TV price through January 2005. Customers can call DISH Network or a local satellite TV retailer to learn how to get a free multi-satellite dish antenna required to receive Augusta-area local channels. DISH Network also provides digital video recording technologies, high definition TV and more than 60 international channels to the Augusta-area.
"The addition of local channels on DISH Network gives customers in the Augusta area a final reason to choose DISH Network over cable," said Eric Sahl, vice president of Programming. "Customers in Augusta and the surrounding area now have more programming and product choices at a better price, with the ability to watch the news, weather and sports that matter most to them."
DISH Network offers local channels via satellite to 18 counties in the Augusta area: Burke, Columbia, Emanuel, Glascock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Lincoln, McDuffie, Richmond, Taliaferro, Warren, Wilkes, Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Edgefield and McCormick counties.
With the addition of Augusta, DISH Network offers local channels in 133 cities and their metro areas, in 50 states and in the District of Columbia.
For customers who do not subscribe to Digital Home Advantage, local channels will be available at $5.99 a month.
