It appears AT&T will utilise DISH Network as its sole satellite TV platform. AT&T confirmed it would market and sell EchoStar’s DISH Network as its exclusive satellite TV service until the deal between the companies expires in late 2008. The telco will stop selling DirecTV in the first quarter.
While DISH will remain an AT&T exclusive through 2008, some suggest DiresTV could be back in contention for the telco’s business when the EchoStar deal expires. The satellite TV giant said it’s interested in partnering again with the telco company.
