DISH Network Corporation provides pay-TV services in the United States. Business Strategy The company’s business strategy is to be the best provider of video services in the United States by providing high-quality products, outstanding customer service, and great value. The company promotes DISH branded programming packages as providing its subscribers with a better ‘price-to-value’ relationship than those available from other subscription television providers. DISH The DISH branded direct broadcast satellite (DBS) pay-TV service had 14.057 million subscribers in the United States as of December 31, 2013. The DISH branded pay-TV service consists of Federal Communications Commission licenses authorizing the company to use DBS and Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) spectrum, its satellites, receiver systems, third-party broadcast operations, customer service facilities, a leased fiber network, in-home service and call center operations, and certain other assets utilized in its operations. In addition, the company markets broadband services under the dishNET brand. Wireless: The company owns DBSD North America, Inc. and TerreStar Networks, Inc. Programming: The company provides programming that includes approximately 280 basic video channels, including 25 regional sports channels and 70 channels of pay-per-view content; 70 Sirius Satellite Radio music channels; 30 premium movie channels; 10 specialty sports channels; 3,100 standard definition and high-definition (HD) local channels; and 300 Latino and international channels. The company distributed approximately 3,100 local channels. As of December 31, 2013, it provided local channels in standard definition in all 210 TV markets in the U.S. and local channels in HD in approximately 190 markets in the U.S. Receiver Systems: The company’s subscribers receive programming via equipment that includes a small satellite dish, digital set-top receivers, and remote controls. Some of its advanced receiver models feature digital video recorders (DVRs), HD capability, multiple tuners (for independent viewing on separate televisions) and Internet-protocol compatibility (to view movies and other content on televisions via the Internet and a broadband connection). The company relies on EchoStar Corporation (EchoStar) to design and manufacture all of its new receivers and certain related components. Blockbuster@Home: Blockbuster@Home gives DISH subscribers streaming access to approximately 10,000 movies and TV shows via their TV and online access to approximately 25,000 movies and TV shows via their computer. dishNET: The company markets its satellite broadband service under the dishNET brand. This service utilizes advanced technology and high-powered satellites launched by Hughes Communications, Inc (Hughes) and ViaSat, Inc. (ViaSat) to provide broadband coverage nationwide. This service primarily targets approximately 15 million rural residents that are underserved, or unserved, by wireline broadband, and provides download speeds of up to 10 megabits of data per second (Mbps). The company leases the customer premise equipment to subscribers and generally pays Hughes and ViaSat a wholesale rate per subscriber on a monthly basis. The company utilizes its existing DISH distribution channels under similar incentive arrangements as its pay-TV business to acquire new broadband subscribers. In addition to the dishNET branded satellite broadband service, the company offers wireline voice and broadband services under the dishNET brand as a competitive local exchange carrier to consumers living in a 14-state region (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming). The company’s dishNET branded wireline broadband service provides download speeds of approximately 20 Mbps. The company primarily bundles its dishNET branded services with its DISH branded pay-TV service, to offer customers a single bill, payment and customer service option, which includes a discount for bundled services. In addition, it markets and sells its dishNET branded services on a stand-alone basis. DISH Anywh
