Dish Network to add nine HD pay-per-view channels on September 12th

Shortly after playing down DirecTV's claims of offering up 100 HD channels, Dish Network is apparently readying nine more of its own. Of course, these additions will be pay-per-view only, but it's more HD regardless. According to a page in the latest issue of Dish Magazine, the satellite operator will "add nine new pay-per-view HD movie channels to its lineup on September 12th." The channels will occupy numbers 531, 534 - 537, 540 - 542, and 539 (which will be a simulcast of channel 9467). Keep an eye (or both) out for the new options to open up in just three weeks.
