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.
