Posted by at 2:35 pm on April 6, 2011

DISH Network recently announced that RFD-TV’s high-definition channel, RFD HD, is now available at no additional cost to all DISH Network customers who subscribe to the America’s Top 200 programming package or above.

RFD-TV, available on DISH Network Ch. 231, is dedicated to serving rural America with a 24-hour schedule of well-balanced, high-quality, original and family-oriented programs that cover the rural way of life, including agriculture, equine, music and entertainment.

“DISH Network has its roots in rural America, which is why we’re proud to not only have been the first to launch and distribute RFD-TV nationally but also to be the first to offer the channel to millions of homes in high definition,” said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “What’s more, DISH Network is the only TV company that gives our customers free HD programming for life, meaning existing RFD-TV viewers won’t have to pay a penny more to get their rural news, agricultural features, horse training and informational programming in crystal-clear high definition.”

“The beauty of rural America in high-definition is stunning,” said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of Rural Media Group, Inc., owners of both RFD-TV and RFD HD. “From day one, DISH Network has been a great partner in our efforts to expand programming to serve the needs and interests of rural America. We, along with the over 80 independent programmers currently on RFD-TV/RFD HD, appreciate the continued strong support from everyone at DISH Network.”

Customers who currently receive RFD-TV a la carte will automatically receive the RFD HD channel.
