About Dish Network - Digital Satellite TV Provider

FREE Dish Network SatelliteEchoStar Communications Corporation has been a leader in the satellite TV industry for over 20 years and is the parent company of DISH Network, the fastest growing pay television provider in the nation.

Headquartered in Littleton, Colorado. EchoStar Communications Corporation is a public company with approximately 15,000 employees. The Company and its subsidiaries deliver Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) television products and services to customers worldwide.

Dish Network Story

EchoStar's story began in 1980 when Chairman and CEO, Charlie Ergen, entered the satellite television industry as a distributor of C-band TV systems. Joined by his wife, Cantey, and friend, James DeFranco, EchoStar Communications Corporation was formed. Operations quickly expanded and the Company earned a reputation for innovation, while focusing on providing customers with state-of-the-art equipment, systems and service.

In 1987, EchoStar filed for a Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) license with the Federal Communications Commission and was granted access to orbital slot 119 West Longitude in 1992. The Company began its move toward providing its own DBS service on December 28, 1995, with the successful launch of EchoStar I. That same year, EchoStar established the DISH Network brand name.

Throughout its 23-year history, EchoStar has demonstrated its entrepreneurial spirit by achieving significant industry firsts:

  • First company to offer a satellite receiver for less than $200

  • First to develop a UHF remote control

  • First to offer an Integrated Receiver Descrambler (IRD) for C-band satellite TV

  • First nationwide installation network dedicated solely to satellite TV systems

  • First to offer satellite receiver with built-in digital video recording

EchoStar II, launched on September 10, 1996, expanded DISH Network's capacity. As EchoStar continued to acquire new orbital slots (61.5, 148 and 110), it added to its fleet of satellites. EchoStar III was sent into orbit on October 5, 1997. This was followed by the launch of EchoStar IV on May 8, 1998, and EchoStar V on September 23, 1999. On July 14, 2000, over 10,000 EchoStar employees worldwide gathered to celebrate the launch of EchoStar VI. Today, the eight satellites that make up the EchoStar fleet have the capacity to provide over 500 channels of digital video, audio and data services via DISH Network service to homes, businesses and schools throughout the United States.
