Dish Network satellite TV viewers are going to have to wait a while -- maybe a long while -- for all those new high-def channels that Dish has been promising. A new satellite that was supposed to add between 20 and 50 new channels to Dish's high-def lineup flew off into the Twilight Zone after it was launched Friday. A second-stage booster engine on the Russian-made Proton rocket carrying the satellite shut down early, leaving it 5,000 miles short of its target. That's the second botched mission by a Proton rocket in six months, and they're likely to be grounded until somebody figures out what the problem is.
