Last usa tv satellite launch was E18 in June 2016.So when is Dish going to put up a new satellite up again? I think its been 7 years since they launched one up.
I had remembered news of SpaceX launching an Echostar satellite this year. I checked. They did send up Echostar 23 on March 16, but that one is for service in Brazil.Last usa tv satellite launch was E18 in June 2016.
They have lots of brand new or nearly new spare tv capacity up there and probably will not need anything new for years.
On the other side of their business, they have been recently launching broadband and foreign service tv satellites like roman candles on the 4th of July
