More Local HD Markets for DISH

DISH Network announced the addition of four local high def markets: Cleveland/Akron, Ohio; Milwaukee, Wis.; Richmond, Va.; and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla.

With the additions, DISH Network said it now offers HD locals in 43 markets, reaching more than 58 percent of U.S. TV households.

In order to view HD programming, DISH Network customers must upgrade to a dishHD receiver such as the ViP722, a dual-tuner HD DVR that operates two televisions in separate rooms, one in HD and one in standard definition. The ViP722 can record up to 55 hours of HD and up to 350 hours of standard definition programming.
