Video and Broadcast

EchoStar Technologies is known as an industry leader in satellite video and broadcast products and services. Over the last three decades, EchoStar Technologies’ award-winning innovations and disruptive video solutions have impacted the way consumers view, receive and manage TV programming.

We design, develop and distribute advanced video hardware and software solutions for customers and partners around the globe, including major partners in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe. Much of our success is attributed to the relationship with our largest customer, DISH, and our revolutionary Hopper whole-home HD DVR solution. Most recently, we have set a new standard in the way people are watching TV online with the launch of DISH’s Sling TV service, which utilizes our patented adaptive bit-rate streaming platform.

EchoStar is the leader in TV Anywhere technology for both operator- and consumer-facing solutions. Our patented TV Anywhere technology allows customers to watch their actual TV—including all live, DVR, subscription and On Demand programming—from anywhere in the world.

Not only do we engineer video hardware and software solutions, but we manage a number of digital broadcast centers in the U.S., with multiple regional and micro broadcast locations. Our vast network enables us to maximize the use of spot-beam capabilities for our satellites, which service approximately 175 enterprise customers and approximately 17 million pay-TV subscribers, with national and local programming.
