Dish, a satellite TV company, has announced a new service that’s quite different from what it has been doing for years. It will now come to your home to fix your broken iPhone, yes that’s right, you can now call Dish to have repairs made on damaged iPhones. Starting today, anybody in the United States can request an on-site screen or battery replacement from Dish.
Do take note that Netflix was available on Dish set-top boxes not too long ago – in December of last year, in fact, and as usual, the spirit of wanting to make things a whole lot better and more efficient has led to Dish offering an improved level of integration between its platform as well as the video-streaming service for its subscribers.

The folks at Dish have already unveiled their plan of going after cord cutters who are moving away from the traditional model of watching and paying for TV but they’re not done yet with millions of subscribers who still use its pay-TV service. For them, it has announced the launch of a new 4K ultra HD set-top box which will bring content in ultra high definition to compatible TV sets.
There is no doubt that internet TV is changing the landscape. Major providers which were previously closed to the idea are now scrambling to get their own services up so that they can cater to cord cutters who would rather pay for a streaming service they can access through a variety of devices than pay for a conventional cable or satellite service. Dish today announced Sling TV, its new internet TV service, which […]

There have been many reports of Dish debating a potential acquisition of T-Mobile U.S. and the latest from Bloomberg suggests that Dish honcho Charlie Ergen has reached out to Deutsche Telekom for precisely this purpose. Deutsche Telekom is the majority stakeholder in T-Mobile U.S. It is still open to a sale even though the expected merger with Sprint fell through.
We have been hearing the rumors that Sprint could be getting ready to announce their plans to acquire T-Mobile.

The Walt Disney Company and DISH Network Corporation have come together to issue an announcement concerning a groundbreaking, long-term, wide-ranging distribution agreement which will see DISH customers enjoy access to Disney’s robust line-up of top quality sports, news and entertainment content, whether you view it over TVs, computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and other compatible connected devices.
A couple of years ago, AT&T failed to acquire T-Mobile not because T-Mobile did not want to play ball, but rather because there were too many opposing the merger due to worries about AT&T and T-Mobile monopolizing the market. However according to recent reports, it seems that Sprint could be thinking about acquiring the carrier themselves, which some have speculated to be a mere trial balloon as opposed to a […]
