DISH Network Adds CSTV To Channel Line Up


ENGLEWOOD, Colo., - Sept. 7, 2005 – EchoStar Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH) today announced its DISH Network satellite TV service now offers CSTV: College Sports Television.

CSTV Networks, Inc. is a multi-media company consisting of the first 24-hour college sports television network. Starting today, Sept. 7, CSTV will be available to DISH Network’s 11.4 million subscribers nationwide and included in DISH Network’s “America’s Top 180” programming package, at no extra charge.

CSTV provides more live college sports games, events, news, information, analysis and broadband content on more platforms, and reaches more college sports fans, than any other company. CSTV has television rights for all Conference USA sports. Beginning in 2006, CSTV will have exclusive media rights for all Mountain West Conference sports. CSTV also owns exclusive multi-media rights to carry U.S. Naval Academy football games, both home and select neutral sites, as well as some other Navy sports. On Saturday, Sept. 10, CSTV will broadcast Stanford vs. Navy at Annapolis, Md.

“CSTV complements DISH Network’s powerful line-up of sports programming,” said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “The addition of CSTV on DISH Network provides customers with access to more college sports information without the need for extra, costly services.”

“We’re delighted that DISH Network recognizes the huge appetite that college fans have for seeing more games from more schools on television,” said Brian Bedol, chief executive officer for CSTV Networks. “Now, DISH Network and its subscribers have more access to valuable, daily, live college sports programming and CSTV gains greater national distribution.”

DISH Network customers can find CSTV on Ch. 152. Customers can subscribe to DISH Network by calling DISH Network or a local DISH Network retailer. For more information on DISH Network go to www.DISHNetwork.com or call 1-800-333-DISH (3474).
