Dish Network teams with Univision for World Cup channel

Colorado-based Dish Network has teamed with Univision to bring a dedicated World Cup channel for its Hispanic customers.

The channel, dubbed the FIFA World Cup Channel, will provide soccer loving fans with access to Univision's 24/7 coverage of the World Cup tournament including highlights and prime-time replays of big games from the day before. Located on channel 826, the HD channel will also include an "interactive feature," allowing customers to vote on which team they think will win a future game. After voting, customers will be entered into a sweepstakes for a free iPad given away each week.

A grand prize featuring a $5,000 home entertainment system will also be offered.

Sadly, the FIFA World Cup Channel is only accessible by DishLatino and DishMexico customers.

"The Univision FIFA World Cup Channel, combined with Univision, TeleFutura and Galavisión in high definition, offers our DishLatino customers unprecedented access to the best the World Cup has to offer," says senior vice president of programming for Dish Network, Dave Shull. "We're proud to partner with Univision to deliver more World Cup coverage than any other pay-TV provider in the country."
