DISH Adds Four Local HD Markets

Last week, DISH Network added four markets to its local high-def services: Albany/Schenectady/Troy, N.Y.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Lansing, Mich.; and Syracuse, N.Y.

With the additions, the small dish service now offers HD locals in 65 markets, reaching more than 69 percent of U.S. TV households, the company said.

The HD locals are part of a push by the company to reach a year-end goal of 100 local HD markets and 100 national HD channels.
