ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 21, 2004--EchoStar
Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:DISH) released the following
statement today:

EchoStar applauds the members of Congress for their work in passing
the Satellite Home Viewer Extension and Reauthorization Act of 2004
that will benefit consumers. Over the next several years, the bill
will allow satellite TV carriers to begin offering distant high
definition TV network channels to many consumers if the local
broadcasters lapse on their promises to Congress to begin broadcasting
full-power HDTV to their viewers. EchoStar thanks the Senate and House
Commerce Committees and the Senate and House Judiciary Committees for
their time and effort in creating this bill and focusing on the best
interests of consumers. In particular, we appreciate the diligence of
Senators Ensign, McCain, and Stevens, their staffs and the
participation of the House and Senate leadership.
