ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -  EchoStar Communications Corporation announced  that its DISH Network will offer local TV channels by satellite television to the Albany area.

The following local TV channels will be available on June 10th: NBC Ch. 10 (WALB), FOX Channel 31 (WFXL) and PBS Channel 14 (WABW). Eligible customers will also be able to receive, where available, Atlanta's ABC Channel 2 (WSB) and CBS Channel 46 (WGCL) local channels.

This is the first time local TV channels are available by satellite in Albany, providing an alternative to local cable TV service. 

DISH Network has frozen the lowest all digital TV price through January 2005. Customers can call DISH Network or a local satellite TV retailer to leam how to get a free multi-satellite dish antenna required to receive Albany-area local channels.

DISH Network also provides digital video recording technologies, high definition TV and international channels to the Albany area.

"The addition of local channels on DISH Network gives customers in the Albany area a final reason to choose DISH Network over cable," said Eric Sahl, vice president of Programming. "Customers in Albany now have more programming and product choices at a better price, with the ability to watch the news, weather and sports that matter most to them."

DISH Network offers local channels via satellite to 19 counties in the Albany area: Atkinson, Baker, Ben Hill, Berrien, Calhoun, Clinch, Coffee, Colquitt, Cook, Crisp, Dougherty, Irwin, Lee, Miller, Mitchell, Terrell, Tift, Turner and Worth counties.

With the addition of Albany, DISH Network offers local channels in 129 cities and their metro areas, twice as many markets as its nearest competitor.
