EchoStar Communications has launched CNN Enhanced TV, an interactive version of the news channel that pushes headlines and images from CNN.com.

The application will also support polls and network schedules. Powered by OpenTV Corp., the service is available on EchoStar channel 100, also known as "DishHOME."

"This application offers our viewers an interactive news experience, enabling them to not only benefit from our extensive televised coverage but also take advantage of the extensive resources of CNN.com, all without leaving their television sets," said Turner Broadcasting System SVP of Strategic Planning, Corporate and Technology Strategy Kevin Cohen, in a statement.
