Ah, who doesn’t like earnings season? It’s our chance to look at the companies we love and really get an idea where they are headed. DISH had a busy first quarter, releasing its first 4K capable products — the Hopper 3 and 4K Joey — and finally giving some streamable 4K content courtesy of Netflix. Will it be enough to deliver a stellar first quarter for the pay-TV giant? The good news for investors is that DISH seems to have kept to core business in the last quarter, ending (or at least pausing) years of speculation in the wireless spectrum business and instead focusing on satellite delivery and its still-new Sling TV service.
We’ll get a taste of the financials in the quarterly conference call tomorrow, where DISH, as a publicly traded company, bares all. The pay-TV industry as a whole continues to divide itself into clear winners and losers, but DISH seems to straddle the middle ground, growing modestly (and bucking industry trends) even though they do not have the “bundle” capacity that pretty much every other provider has.
If you’re interested in the call, the press release is below; as always I’ll post the financials when they become available.
