DISH Network Adds NFL Network to Channel Line-up

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.

NFL Network is now located on DISH Network Ch. 154 and offers the most unique access to the NFL on television. With a camera at each of the 32 team facilities, viewers of NFL Network get closer to the NFL experience than ever before.

"NFL Network complements DISH Network's powerful line-up of sports programming," said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. "The addition of NFL Network on DISH Network provides customers with access to more football and player information."

With the network's exclusive access into key league events, football fans will have access to more than 1,500 hours of programming on NFL Network.

after "Nasdaq:" .. it's good to make a space (manually if needed) .. before "D" ..
Then no conflicts issues with smiles...

On occasion that space is already there.. (Often depending on where one gets the news release from :)

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...

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!
