Summary

DISH is a Fortune 200 company with more than $15 billion in annual revenue that continues to redefine the communications industry.

We are doing it again with the launch of the first live, internet-delivered TV Service – Sling TV, that bucks traditional pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and watch television.

Now we have our sights set on upending the wireless industry and unseating the entrenched incumbent carriers.
