Dish Network launched MLB Network tonight and couldn’t have picked a better schedule with long time rivals New York Yankees facing the Boston Red Sox. The channel is available on channel 153 to customers who subscribe to one of America’s Top 200, DISH Latino Dos or MultiSport packages. Best of all, MLB Network is offered in high-definition (HD).
“With the pennant races heating up, DISH Network brings our customers wall-to-wall baseball coverage and MLB games in HD on MLB Network,” said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network.
Dish Network recently launched HUB-HD (formerly Discovery Kids), but at the same time removed Fashion TV HD from their lineup.
