Dish Network is a proven provider with award-winning products that were the first in the industry, like the MPEG4 receiver, the HD 1080p formatting and the Interactive Television feature. The MPEG4 receiver was the first DVR receiver that offered High Definition programming. The MPEG4 set an industry standard, giving viewers an opportunity to get and record HD programming at affordable rates. The HD 1080p formatting was especially designed by Dish Network to give the viewer a cinematic experience in the home, shown with newly released movies stored on their DVR. With six times the resolution as standard formatting and sound and image enhancement that rivals Blu Ray technology, HD 1080p formatting quickly became a popular feature that outshines even traditional HD programming. The Dish Network Interactive Television feature integrates online services with programming selections to provide the ultimate television experience. With the Dish Network Interactive Television feature, subscribers can pay their monthly bill, play games or even shop while sitting on the couch, with the remote in hand. Interactive Television offers convenience and value to any programming package.
These features come with unique programming packages offered for specialized interests, like sports fans, music fans and movie buffs. Depending on the particular interest of the customer, a subscriber can choose a package that caters specifically to that individual’s tastes in programming material. Not only can a subscriber get specialized programming for specific viewing interests, but he or she can also get it in his or her native language. Dish Network offers a wide variety of languages, like Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German, among others. Dish Network also offers original native programming for the non-English households in the United States.
With the incredible programming options and award-winning products, it is not a surprise that Dish Network recently acquired their 14 millionth customer, after signing up 150,000 customers in the last quarter.
Dish Network is excited and proud of this accomplishment. Charlie Ergen, the President for Dish Network, as well as a Dish Network CEO and Chairman, said, “Surpassing 14 million subscribers is testimony to the strides we made over the past year in providing a best-in-class video experience.” Dish Network products and services has helped define industry standard for the Pay TV industry.
Dish Network is now over 14 million customers strong, with the potential for continued growth in the future. Dish Network customers already have award-winning products and exciting programming packages to enjoy, but there are sure to be even more innovative, award-winning products and services offered to Dish Network packages in the future.
