DISH Networks hits 10 million customer milestone

EchoStar’s DISH Network now has more than 10 million subscribers. The company achieved the milestone in less than 99 months after activating its first subscriber in early March 1996, adding an average of more than 100,000 new customers each month.

Even with its dramatic growth, competitor DirecTV remains the larger satellite provider. As of December 31, 2003, DirecTV had approximately 12.2 million subscribers in the United States.

To celebrate the milestone, DISH is giving away 1000 high-definition television systems, complete with a monitor, HD satellite receiver, a dish antenna, and a one-year subscription to DISH Network’s HD programming package. Winners — from among existing customers — will be selected in random drawings this summer.
