Dish Network to buy Blockbuster for $228 million

Posted in News by Reuben Drake on April 6th, 2011

Dish Network has opened up it’s massive wallet today and announced that it will be acquiring Blockbuster for $228 million. The satellite provider participated in a bankruptcy court auction for Blockbuster, with a winning bid of $320 million. After some adjustments for cash and inventory, the companies both agreed on the final price.

So Blockbuster will continue in some form, we just aren’t sure what Dish’s plans are for it at this time. Who knows, maybe they will try to take on Netflix, though that might be futile.

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2010

Dish Network and it’s subscribers are joining the 21st century at last. DishOnline.com opens up online and offers on-demand streaming of content to its subscribers. At least 15 channels will stream live, including all the major networks and extras like Syfy and Comedy Central.

Right now however, selection looks a bit limited. The site will also provide remote DVR scheduling and let Sling users stream recorded content right from their device. The service will go live in the next few days and will only be available to Dish subscribers. Might be a good time to subscribe.

Dish to bring streaming TV to mobile devices

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

Dish Network hopes to not only keep their current subscribers happy, but also gain some new subscribers by adding another value-added service. They want you to be able to watch satellite TV programs on your mobile devices. Without paying an extra dime for it.

That’s right, this means that your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and BlackBerrys will be able to take advantage of this starting next month. Android users will have to wait an extra month. Unless the mobile user has a Dish-compatible, dual-tuner DVR at home, however, they will have to watch whatever channel is set at home.

dishnetworkdvraccess-sbThe cable company that serves my neighborhood sucks. They have about only a few HD channels and didn’t have DVR’s until last year. The company is totally stuck in the early 2000’s. I opted to go with DirecTV instead of cable or Dish Network because DirecTV had more HD offerings at the time.

DirecTV launched a new app for the iPhone not too long ago that allows you to access your DVR, even if it’s not connected to the Internet, and schedule recordings. Dish Network has announced that it is now offering a service called Remote Access that allows users of Dish Network DVRs to access their DVR and record programs from any computer in the world.

Dish Network DTVPalMost of us know thanks to the gobs of press and TV commercials that early in 2009 most broadcasters are switching to all digital broadcasts as mandated by the FCC. The switch means that TV watchers without cable, satellite or new digital ready TVs will need a converter box to keep watching TV.

Sears announced today that it would be carrying the Dish Network DTVPal converter box in all of its stores across the country. Dish says that its converter box is the only one with nationwide customer care and service. The box also features an electronic program guide and a remote that can control the TV volume for users.
