Earth on TV: New channel offers views of Earth

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado ” Planet Earth, you’re on the air.

Beginning Wednesday evening, a new channel on Dish Network Corp.’s satellite TV service is giving subscribers live views of Earth, 24 hours a day.



The channel Dish Earth gets its feed from a camera installed on Dish Network’s EchoStar 11 satellite, which launched last year. Images from the camera also are for sale through Give the World, a service offered jointly with Houston-based Space Services Inc.

The camera was developed by the EchoStar Spacecraft Operations Team, Ecliptic Enterprises Corp. of Pasadena, Calif., and Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, Calif. It is operated under a license from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
