The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) was scheduled to debut today in high definition on Dish Network, Multichannel News reported.
The HD version of the network will be carried on channel 189, the story says. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
The network will be available to Dish subscribers with America’s Top 200 programming package or above.
"Oprah fans won’t pay a penny more for the high-definition broadcast," said Dave Shull, senior vice president of programming for Dish, in a statement. OWN said many viewers had contacted the network to ask for the cable channel in HD.
