Dish Beams Local HD Into Detroit


Dish Network customers in the “Motor City” can now tune in to a new lineup of local HDTV channels.

EchoStar Communications launched the trio of local HD channels for ABC, CBS and Fox affiliates Friday in Detroit and nine surrounding counties. This marks the first time local channels in HD will be available on Dish in that area.

DishHD offers customers as much as 1,700 hours of weekly HD programming via 29 channels, depending on the packages they select. Prices for the HD service start at $49.99 per month, plus $5 for local channels in HD and standard-definition formats.
