Eastern Arc dish

Echostar Knowledge Base
The Dish Network User's Resource

The Eastern Arc dish, introduced at Team Summit 2008, is designed to pick up the 61.5°, 72.7° and 77° orbital slots. Programming other than locals will mirror that of the Western Arc of 110°, 119° and 129°, except that it will all be MPEG-4.  The new dish will be available Aug 20, 2008 in 21 select markets, more are flagged as (EA) on the HD Locals page.




Some areas (unknown which ones) may need a slightly larger dish.  For that, the Dish 500+ can be outfitted with the EA Repoint kit, making it a Dish 1000.5.
