Dish Network Launches Local TV Stations in High Definition in New York
City via Satellite; DISH Network Introduces Nation's Largest Package
of HD Channels

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 2, 2006--EchoStar
Communications Corporation (Nasdaq:DISH) and its DISH Network(TM)
satellite TV service announced today it will launch local high
definition TV channels via its satellite TV service to customers in
New York City and the surrounding counties. The following local TV
channels will be available: ABC Ch. 7 (WABC), CBS Ch. 2 (WCBS), NBC
Ch. 4 (WNBC) and FOX Ch. 5 (WNYW).

With the addition of HD locals in New York, customers can now watch
Desperate Housewives on ABC, CSI on CBS, American Idol on Fox and the
2006 Winter Olympics on NBC, all in breath-taking high definition.
Plus, DISH Network is offering its New York area customers Super Bowl
XL in stunning HD on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Customers in New York who sign up for any of the new DishHD(TM)
packages can take advantage of more than 1,700 hours of HD programming
every week, including their local HD broadcasts. Cable companies, with
a national average of just 10 HD channels, cannot come close to the
robust lineup of DishHD. As an added bonus, new customers who sign up
for DishHD through a local RadioShack retailer before Feb. 28, are
eligible for next-day installation.
