Gee, that $7+ billion would have paid for a pretty big infrastructure footprint for Dish.Dish is putting it's money into wireless.
Again today This band has coverage out a mile or so and more value than the high frequency 5g .
AT&T and satellite TV provider Dish Network are the top winners of airwaves once reserved for military use that will soon be used for 5G wireless service in the Federal Communications Commission's latest auction, the agency said Friday.
AT&T spent $9.1 billion and Dish spent $7.3 billion for licenses of wireless spectrum that sits between the 2.5 gigahertz and 3.5GHz range of frequencies on the radio spectrum. T-Mobile was the third highest bidder in the auction, spending $2.9 billion. Verizon Communications did not participate in the
CNET: AT&T and Dish big winners in latest 5G auction.
The last reported figure we have for AT&T/DTV subscribers is 15.412 million. It's from the end of June 2021, just before the DTV spin-off from AT&T, and it includes DTV satellite (the great majority of the subs) plus Uverse TV as well as all their streaming cable TV subs. (Those streaming subs all now exist under the subsequent DIRECTV Stream brand but in the past had come in under DIRECTV Now, then either AT&T TV or AT&T TV Now.)
Kroc was given exclusive rights to sell the Multimixer nationwide. One of Mr. Kroc's customers was a restaurant owned by Maurice and Richard McDonald that used 8 of the mixers. The uniqueness of the restaurant was its assembly line format to prepare and sell a large volume of hamburgers, French fries and milk shakes.Really? He sold a milk shake before a burger? I had no idea.
Maybe $20-23/mo month to month for some markets for (ALL LOCAL TEAMS) and $15-$20/mo year to yearYeah, there would definitely be fewer takers for the RSNs if they become completely optional for all cable TV subs. Which, I'm sure, is why there's talk of the standalone service being priced at $23 instead of the average amount that cable subs pay via their RSN fee, which is maybe half that. My guess is there will be a discount for those who pre-pay for an entire year, although many folks wouldn't do that because they only care about one of the three sports, MLB, NHL or NBA.
I was planning on seeing that in the theater, but missed it. Years later I saw it on Netflix. The McDonald brothers appeared as very inflexible and Ray Kroc appeared as very devious. All three of them appeared as such dicks. Good movie though.Did you see the movie with Michael Keaton?
It is really good.
I still would be hesitant on that. Not to mention I'd wonder what would happen with "moving".It would be great if the merger goes thru, that somehow the DISH Hopper DVR system with the 2 TB storage becomes the main system, with DirecTV's superior clarity and picture.
if the merger does go through one word comes to my mind monopoly
Although I'm a customer of SiriusXM, I still wish they were separate companies.Tell that to SIRIUSXM.
DISH & DIRECTV could make the same argument: streaming is competition in most (and ever increasingly more) places. Hence, there’s no real “monopoly”.
