Dish Network Launches Local TV Stations in High Definition in New York City via Satellite; DISH Network Introduces Nation's Largest Package of HD Channels

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 2, 2006--EchoStar Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:DISH) and its DISH Network(TM) satellite TV service announced today it will launch local high definition TV channels via its satellite TV service to customers in New York City and the surrounding counties. The following local TV channels will be available: ABC Ch. 7 (WABC), CBS Ch. 2 (WCBS), NBC Ch. 4 (WNBC) and FOX Ch. 5 (WNYW).

With the addition of HD locals in New York, customers can now watch Desperate Housewives on ABC, CSI on CBS, American Idol on Fox and the

2006 Winter Olympics on NBC, all in breath-taking high definition. Plus, DISH Network is offering its New York area customers Super Bowl XL in stunning HD on Sunday, Feb. 5.
