February 22, 2017 06:02 AM Eastern Standard Time

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH) reported revenue totaling $3.72 billion for the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2016 compared to $3.78 billion for the corresponding period in 2015.

Net income attributable to DISH Network totaled $343 million for the fourth quarter 2016, compared to a loss of $125 million from the year-ago quarter. Diluted earnings per share were $0.70 for the fourth quarter, compared to a loss of $0.27 cents per share during the same period of 2015.

DISH includes all of its DISH and Sling branded subscribers in the company’s total Pay-TV metrics, including in the Pay-TV subscriber, Pay-TV ARPU and Pay-TV churn rate numbers set forth below. Sling TV subscribers are reported net of disconnects in our gross new Pay-TV subscriber activations.

In the fourth quarter, DISH activated approximately 694,000 gross new Pay-TV subscribers, compared to approximately 661,000 gross new Pay-TV subscribers in the year-ago period. Net Pay-TV subscribers increased by approximately 28,000 in the fourth quarter, compared to a loss of approximately 12,000 in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Full-Year 2016 Review

For the year, DISH reported 2016 total revenue of $15.09 billion compared to $15.07 billion in 2015. Subscriber-related revenue in 2016 was $15.03 billion, compared to $14.95 billion in 2015.

Net income attributable to DISH Network in 2016 was $1.45 billion compared to $747 million in 2015. Diluted earnings per share were $3.05 in 2016, compared with $1.61 in 2015.

The company closed the fourth quarter with 13.671 million Pay-TV subscribers, compared to 13.897 million Pay-TV subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2015. Our ending Pay-TV subscriber count increased by approximately 166,000 subscribers during the third quarter 2016 as a result of the change in our calculation for our commercial accounts. This had no impact on our gross new Pay-TV subscriber activations or net Pay-TV subscriber losses for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016.

Pay-TV ARPU was $88.66 during 2016 versus $86.79 in 2015. Pay-TV average monthly subscriber churn for 2016 was 1.83 percent compared to 1.71 percent in 2015.

Detailed financial data and other information are available in DISH Network's Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Nice Job Dish.
Hopefully that was Satellite customers that were added as well.

But with an Average almost $90 per month I don't see how this could be Sling customers.

Not only that, the average went *up*, not down. If the average went down that would indicate more subscribers to Sling and/or Flex Pack (which is obviously not as profitable as AT packages)

As they say Rome was not built in a day, those figures are encouraging not great, but if a trend then good. Assuming enough subscribers know about it the current customer deals and the Flex packages should help with turnover. It does look like at least some of it came from Satellite subscriptions.
I will say that looking at the industry as a whole, makes the report look even a little better.

Dish's refusal to break out its high-margin satellite TV subscriber numbers from its low-margin Sling TV subscribers is just a way to deceive its stockholders. Clearly Dish is not being honest about its subscriber losses.

Such deception should be banned but I guess they figured out a way to get around being candid with investors.

DISH Network's Form 10-K will have detailed info once filed later today.

Just looking at overall numbers from last year same time, Quote: The company closed the fourth quarter with 13.671 million Pay-TV subscribers, compared to 13.897 million Pay-TV subscribers in the fourth quarter of 2015. This is 226,000 less subs if math is correct.
