Dish Network surprised analysts Tuesday, reporting third quarter net new subscriber additions that far exceeded consensus estimates while its broadband service appears to be gaining steam.
Dish added 35,000 net new video customers in the quarter, well above analysts’ consensus estimates of a loss of 39,000 customers. Dish also added 75,000 broadband subscribers in the quarter, bringing its total number of high-speed data customers to 385,000, up 24% from the second quarter.
I was just coming to grips with the notion of a Panasonic plasma-less world when Dish today announced it is shuttering its last remaining Blockbuster stores.

New York – An attempt by ABC to block Dish Network’s AutoHop DVR ad-skipping system was blocked Wednesday by a federal court ruling here.

The Dish campaign and accompanying website feature vocab lessons, an interactive test, a tweet translator and several videos. Viewers across the nation are invited to learn how to “Talk Boston” – or as a Boston native might say, “Tack Bahstin.”
Englewood, Colo. – A federal appeals court Wednesday denied a motion to block DISH Network’s Hopper ad-skipping DVR function, upholding an earlier California district court denial of a preliminary injunction in the case.
A three-judge panel of Ninth Circuit ruled that “the district court did not abuse its discretion in holding that the broadcaster failed to demonstrate a likelihood of success on its copyright infringement and breach of contract claims regarding the television provider's implementation of the commercial-skipping products.”
