Dish intros TV on the go

EchoStar Communications Corporation and its DISH Network satellite TV service today introduced the MobileDISH in-car satellite service, a programming package by DISH Network combined with cutting-edge antenna technology from RaySat. The MobileDISH technology allows DISH Network customers to watch live satellite television from their vehicles, even while in motion.

“We’re excited to partner with RaySat because we know people today are always on the move and have a need for TV even while on the road,” said Mark Jackson, President of EchoStar Technologies. “The MobileDISH technology is just another example of how we’re providing our extensive line of cutting-edge technology and exceptional programming packages to reach our 13 million subscribers everywhere.”

The mobile satellite antenna, designed by RaySat™, mounts to a vehicle’s roof rack and provides hundreds of channels of all-digital DISH Network satellite TV with programming for everyone in the family. The MobileDISH technology is perfect for occupying the kids, monitoring weather and road conditions, keeping up on breaking news and watching movies on long road trips.

The MobileDISH technology is compatible with existing vehicles including most cars, recreational vehicles (RVs) and trucks and performs exceptionally well at highway speeds. More information about the MobileDISH technology, including package information and price details, is expected to be released in Spring 2007.
