DISH rolls HD locals to seven more cities

Kevin C. Tofel

DISH Network was apparently 'it" in the game of "HD locals tag", so today was their turn. The second largest satellite provider lit up the locals in seven areas today and we've got them for you in alphabetical order for no good reason whatsoever. Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C. join the high-def local ranks previously occupied by only New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver and Nashville. The HDBeat labs are in the Philly area and sure enough, when we checked our local availability, we saw those magical two letters, "H" and "D". We're still opting for free OTA here in the labs, but the rest of you big spenders can have your HD locals delivered from space at a price of $5.99 a month. Oh, DIRECTV: you're it!
