DISH Adds Eurochannel

The nation's No. 2 DBS platform is gaining content from the Old World for its growing international programming efforts.

DISH Network on Wednesday said it will launch "Eurochannel." The programming property will air a selection of movies from across Europe as well as music, television series and original productions. All programs will be broadcast in original audio with English subtitles, the company said.

Eurochannel will be available at no additional cost in DISH Network's French Bouquet programming package, available for $19.99 a month. DISH Network also said customers can also add Eurochannel to any existing foreign-language TV package for an extra $9.99 a month.

Eurochannel said it has more than 7 million subscribers in Latin America, Canada, in the Caribbean, Africa and in Portugal.
