DISH Network® Launches DishMEXICO Programming Package

Industry’s First Package Designed Specifically for Mexican Viewers

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 19, 2008 – DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH), the third largest pay-TV provider and digital transition leader, today launched DishMEXICO, the first programming package in the United States designed specifically for Mexicans.

DishMEXICO has more than 50 channels and features some of the most popular Mexican networks such as Univision, Azteca America, Galavision, Teleformula, Telefutura, Telehit, De Película, and De Película Clásico, plus six Latino music channels including Viva Mariachi, Fiesta Mexicana and La Frontera.

The new package also includes the launch of two of the newest and most sought-after channels: Bandamax, the only channel in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to the most popular Mexican and other Latino music categories; and CBeebies, a Mexican-focused, Spanish-language channel developed by BBC that delivers educational and entertainment content for preschoolers, an underserved target in the Spanish-language TV market, available exclusively on DISH Network. DISH Network plans to launch additional exclusive content in the next few weeks.

“DISH Network continues to be a pioneer in Latino programming and now is the exclusive provider of a Mexican-oriented channel package,” said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “Nowhere in America will you find the number of high quality channels DishMEXICO offers for an introductory price of just $9.99 per month, including local channels.”

To promote the new package, DISH Network is rolling out a series of TV spots and print advertisements featuring popular Mexican television star Andrea Legarreta, who has appeared in many telenovelas and movies, and currently hosts popular talk show “Hoy” on Televisa.

“DishMEXICO is an exciting addition to our already extensive Latino programming package lineup, and having Andrea Legarreta as our spokeswoman will help promote the package to those customers who want exclusive Mexican programming at a fantastic price,” said Jessica Insalaco, Chief Marketing Officer for DISH Network.

To order DishMEXICO, customers can visit Dish Latino or call 1-888-599-DISH. DishMEXICO, which includes local channels, is $9.99 per month for the first six months of service. Once the promotion period ends, DishMEXICO is $19.99 per month.

The dish website has some erroneous information about the channels available on dishmexico. It states that all the public interest chanels are available with this package. Includes research. nauhs;rdtv documentary link etc. This is not true I have a friend who got dishmexico and none of these public interest channels are open, I have the more expensive dish latino basic package and again in contrary to what is on the dish website I do not get these channels either
The website states that EVERY dish subscriber gets these public interest channels free. Not true!!

I am sure I am going to get reemed for saying this,Shouldnt dish be getting their english speaking channels in America (all the HD up)rather than be focusing on more mexican channels.There is already alot of Mexican/spanish programming available.Quit catering to foreigners so much.There is enough foreign programming available right now.
