Dish Launches TNT in HD


EchoStar Communications Corp.’s Dish Network direct-broadcast satellite service launched Turner Network Television’s HD feed Friday.

TNT in HD joins ESPN HD, HDNet, HDNet Movies and Discovery HD in Dish’s HD package, which costs subscribers $9.99 per month.

"Bringing TNT to our HD lineup offers customers even more programming in the best resolution and clarity," EchoStar executive vice president of marketing and programming Michael Schwimmer said in a prepared statement.

Earlier this week, Time Warner Cable also announced that it would roll out TNT in HD Friday.
