The satellite operator says it will begin offering the high-def signals of the ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox O&Os in Chicago starting today.
Echostar’s Dish satellite service is expanding its HDTV package for Chicago subscribers with the HD signals of the local network-owed stations: WLS (ABC), WBBM (CBS), WMAQ (NBC) and WFLD (Fox).
The move follows similar ones in New York and Los Angeles.
Through the DishHD package, Chicago subs now have access to more than 1,700 hours of HD programming each week for $50 per month. The package also include the VOOM HD service and the HD offerings of major cable networks.
