The University of Arizona's football game at California this Saturday, broadcast nationally by TBS Sports at 4 p.m. PDT, will also have some new viewing possibilities via DISH network.

EchoStar Communications Corp. and its DISH Network satellite TV service will offer an interactive mosaic that allows viewers to watch and choose six different camera angles during select sporting events.  DISH Network will broadcast TBS College Football Extra each Saturday through Nov. 5 on its interactive TV channel DISH Home, CH. 100.

This marks the first time a pay-TV service provider has nationally broadcast a sports event in the United States with multiple camera angles and interactive capabilities.  Customers can view any camera angle with full audio or go directly to the full screen channel they select.  Angles include high end zone, low end zone, goal post, reverse slash, reverse low end zone, and the regular channel 139 TBS network feed.

DISH Network launched the technology with a broadcast of the Colorado State-Colorado game Sept. 3.

 “TBS College Football Extra on DISH Home allows our viewers to take control of how they watch the game,” said Jody Martin, senior vice president of Marketing for DISH Network."
