Dish Network brags about 22 new HD channels, then turns off 15 others

dish_network_logoOn Monday satellite television provider Dish Network issued press release announcing the addition of 22 new high definition channels to its lineup with Dish Network senior vice president saying “we are excited to extend our competitiveness in HD by enhancing our already comprehensive HD lineup with these 22 channels, bringing our total HD lineup to over 95 channels.”

That’s great, BUT, the very next night they turned off 15 of its Voom HD channels bringing their total to 80.

Pretty damn sneaky. They make a big deal about having nearly as many HD channels as DirecTV, then quietly turn off 15.
