Dish Network Launches NBA TV HD

EchoStar’s Dish Network added NBA TV HD to its lineup, officials said Tuesday.

NBA TV features live NBA games every week, basketball news and information, exclusive interviews with the game’s greatest stars and legends, and original series spotlighting today’s players and coaches as well as the most memorable moments in the NBA’s history. 

NBA TV will offer its first HD games of the 2007-2008 season Nov. 4.

With the latest addition, Dish Network is now offering 75 HDTV channels.

“Bringing NBA TV HD to the home of the best sports and movies in HD is a natural move for Dish Network and a slam dunk for hoops fans,” said Eric Sahl, the satellite company’s senior vice president of programming.

Subscribers to America’s Top 100 package with DishHD will receive NBA TV HD free on Channel 402. DishHD is available free for six months to new customers, and new Dish Network subscribers may also receive a free upgrade to the company’s HD DVR receivers.
