Cleveland HD Locals On Dish Network

It's official, according to a Dish Network press release: The company is offering HD "local-into-local" service for the Cleveland market.

All of the market's "Big Four" network affiliates are being offered: WKYC/3 (NBC), WEWS/5 (ABC), WJW/8 (FOX) and WOIO/19 (CBS). For now, at least, the satellite provider won't offer either WUAB/43 (MyNetworkTV) or WBNX/55 (CW) in HD.

Competitor DirecTV has offered HD locals in the Cleveland TV market for some time.

OMW hears that HD locals on Dish Network, at least here, will require a separate dish pointed at the 61.5 orbital slot...contact the EchoStar customer service folks for more...

DirecTV also added WBNX-HD to its lineup.
