MUMBAI: Dish Network launched new high definition (HD) channels with feeds from Showtime Showcase HD, SHO2 HD, The Movie Channel HD and BET HD.

The DTH satellite television broadcaster plans to include BET, Comedy Central, CMT, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike TV and VH-1 in HD by spring this year.


Says Dish Network SVP programming Dave Shull, "Our subscribers are asking us for more HD, and we're responding by continuing to launch new local HD markets and new national HD channels, making Dish Network the best value in the pay-TV industry."


Showtime Showcase HD, SHO2 HD and The Movie Channel HD are available in the showtime unlimited package, priced at $12.99 per month. BET J is part of platinumHD, and can be added to any programming package for $10 per month.

According to a scheme proposed by the company, all present Dish subscribers who upgrade to HD programming will get platinumHD free for the first three months.
