ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 1, 2012 – DISH, a leading pay-TV provider, today announced a strategic partnership with C Spire Wireless, the only U.S. wireless provider that offers consumers and businesses a full suite of personalized wireless services, to promote DISH’s TV Everywhere™ products and DVR technologies in the wireless carrier’s retail locations.
C Spire, the nation’s largest privately held wireless provider with a footprint covering more than five million consumers in four states in the Southeast, is installing demonstration areas designed to engage customers and show DISH’s TV Everywhere technology.
C Spire customers who subscribe to DISH programming can watch live TV anywhere, anytime on their smartphones and tablets using the DISH Remote Access app or DISH’s viewing portal, www.dishonline.com.
“With DISH, wireless customers can tune in to their home TV and watch their favorite sports team or television program on their wireless mobile device,” said Joseph Clayton, CEO of DISH. “This convenience is made possible by the convergence of DISH technology and C Spire’s mobile broadband services. DISH is the only pay-TV provider that enables wireless customers to watch live TV anywhere, inside and outside the home.”
In addition to marketing DISH’s TV Everywhere products, C Spire is also showcasing DISH’s recently introduced Hopper, the most technically advanced whole-home HD DVR in the industry, at most of its retail locations, including the flagship Renaissance store in Ridgeland, Miss. The Hopper entertainment system lets DISH customers easily record, pause, and play back different shows in up to four rooms in the house.
