DISH, DirecTV to Add Channels
Posted 09 July 2002 - 11:53 PM
EchoStar Chairman and CEO Charlie Ergen said during his monthly "Charlie Chat" with DISH Network customers that National Geographic Channel will be added to the America’s Top 150 package at the end of the week. Also joining the lineup is FOX Sports Net West 2, which will be available to customers living within the channel's service area in September.
Ergen also said DISH Network plans to add local channel packages for customers in Burlington, Vt., Tucson, Ariz. and Tulsa, Okla. He added that EchoStar could serve as many as 50 markets with local channel packages following the launch of EchoStar VIII, a satellite awaiting a flight in Kazakhstan, later this summer.
In addition to DISH, DirecTV said it's offering local TV channels to its customers in Providence, R.I., beginning today. Subscribers in Providence will receive local channels from a DirecTV satellite at 119 degrees, requiring the use of a multi-satellite capable system, which includes a single 18-by-24-inch dish and receiver.
