ResearchChannel Launches Nationwide on EchoStar's Dish 500 Network

-Viewers Gain "Front Row Seats" to the Latest Scientific Reports from
Country's Leading Research Institutions-

Seattle, WA --The ResearchChannel, the nation's first round-the-clock
research television/Internet channel produced by the country's most highly
acclaimed research institutions, is now transmitting its original
programming to public audiences via EchoStar's Dish 500 Network on channel

Institutions providing high quality programming for ResearchChannel's
premiere include Duke University, Stanford University, Princeton
University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, National Institutes of
Health, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Rice University,
University of Alaska-Fairbanks, University of California-San Diego,
University of Colorado, University of Hawaii, University of Maryland,
University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas-Austin, University of
Virginia, and University of Washington. Programming includes public and
exclusive presentations, interviews, and fieldwork featuring leading
researchers and Nobel laureates representing work that runs the gamut of
studies at research institutions across the country.

"The high quality coverage on the ResearchChannel offers research
institutions the opportunity to share a more candid and accurate point of
view of research," said Gene Block, vice president for research and public
service, University of Virginia. "This exposure can change people's
perspective on the methodological process of science - not through short
sound bites, but through more thorough understanding and more facts."

Viewers will have the unique opportunity to access information as it is
reported and described by the scientists involved in research endeavors -
from astronomy, medicine, computer science and engineering, and
oceanography to politics, childhood development, arts and literature, law,
criminology, and much more.

"The launch of the ResearchChannel ushers in a new era of public access to
the research that serves as the foundation of our country's development
and prosperity," said Ed Lazowska, professor and chair, department of
computer science and engineering, University of Washington. "The founders
of the ResearchChannel are to be congratulated for this unprecedented
effort that contributes a significant resource to our national dialogue
and public understanding of research."

The ResearchChannel is an initiative established in 1996 by a consortium
of leading research institutions with the goals of creating direct access
to public audiences with information about the plethora of research and
development activities in progress across the country - and to experiment
with new technologies to make this possible.

In addition to traditional satellite distribution technologies, programs
are available through ResearchChannel's website as regular webcasts and
searchable on-demand video. The ResearchChannel uses its experiments to
ensure the highest quality distribution of better-than-broadcast quality
video over the Internet, and continues to break ground in areas such as
video transfer over the "next generation" Internet. Generous support for
ResearchChannel's experiments and development is made possible by the
participation of corporate research centers including Sony Electronics,
Inc. and IBM Corp.
