Dish Network Loses 94,000 Subscribers
Still has 13.5 million subscribers...
While DirecTV just posted their best subscriber gains in four years (460,000 new subscribers
), rival Dish Network this morning announced
they lost 94,000 subscribers during the first quarter. Still, net income rose to $313 million from $259 million one year ago, with total revenue reaching $2.91 billion -- up 2.1% compared with $2.84 billion a year earlier. The loss of AT&T as a resale partner hurt Dish, but the carrier was already struggling to stay competitive with telcoTV, cable, and DirecTV promotions.
