Multiple Programs on One Screen Let Viewers

Watch the Way They Want to Watch

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – June 10, 2008 – DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH), the third largest pay-TV provider and the leader in digital television, today announced that it will present ESPN’s coverage of the U.S. Open through their Interactive TV (iTV) mosaic, a multiple-screen showcase, available to all of its more than 12 million iTV-enabled homes.

Running June 12 – 13 from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET, the iTV mosaic features six different programs of ESPN’s U.S. Open Golf coverage: ESPN’s network feed; a Featured Group feed showing Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in the first session, and others based on standings; an Up Close channel showing live coverage from the practice range, press conferences and more; a 3rd Hole feed, featuring live coverage of Torrey Pines’ signature Par 3 hole; a Highlights channel, which enables fans to catch up with the championship throughout the day; and The Best of the Open channel, which includes highlights from previous U.S. Open championships and from previous PGA events on the legendary Torrey Pines course. Viewers can choose to watch all six screens at once, or select one to view in a full-screen format.

“DISH Network’s iTV mosaic is the perfect platform to showcase all of ESPN’s U.S. Open golf coverage, giving customers a unique viewing experience that allows them to quickly preview the network’s multiple programs and highlights, and then watch on a full screen whichever interests them the most,” said Eric Sahl, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “The mosaic is a powerful addition to DISH Network’s more than 25 existing iTV channels – the most offered by any pay-TV provider in the U.S.”

I wish it were in hd, like Direct did the Masters. Maybe when all of the birds get up there, they will be able to do this in hd.
