Attention all you Baseball Fans out there, DISH Network has just added the MLB Network in HD to its High-Definition lineup, just in time for the final month of the 2011 baseball season. This channel will be available on 153 for all subscribers who have DISH Network’s America’s Top 200, DISH Latino Dos or Multisport packages. It features a mix of live baseball games, studio analysis shows and documentaries. “With the pennant races heating up, DISH Network brings our customers wall-to-wall baseball coverage and MLB games in HD on MLB Network,” said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “The addition of MLB Network makes DISH Network the place for fans to follow their favorite teams into the Postseason and keep up with the latest information on all 30 Major League Baseball clubs.” DISH Network adding their HD service has been a long time coming. The two sides have been in a power struggle for the past few years and had trouble coming to an agreement. The tension rose before this season when every other major TV provider had added MLB Network HD except for DISH. The MLB Network premiered a game last night featuring two powerhouse clubs competing for the American League pennant: The New York Yankees against the Boston Red Sox’s. Order the MLB Network today and you will receive access to all 30 MLB clubs year-round, with more than 100 live regular season games, over 80 Spring Training Games, original programming, coverage of baseball events, like the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and live studio programming, including its Emmy Award winning signature daily show “MLB Tonight.” To add this to your programming lineup visit us at DISH-Systems or call (888)566-3979.
