Dish Network launching this week, streaming 'several cable networks' to subscribers

Dish Network subscribers, get ready to join the 21st century. Your content provider of choice is said to be peeling the "beta" stickers from its service this week, opening up online and on-demand streaming of content to its subscribers. At least 15 channels will be streaming live over the internets, including all the major networks and extras like Syfy and Comedy Central, though selection appears to be somewhat limited at this time. The site will also provide remote DVR scheduling and let SlingLoaded users stream recorded content straight from their device -- which, of course, they could already do. The service goes live sometime within the next few days, and of course will only be available to Dish subscribers, you lucky people you.
