Wal-Mart Gets DISH, EchoStar Launches Promotion
Posted 02 August 2002 - 02:31 AM
Wal-Mart will carry RCA-branded DISH satellite TV receivers manufactured by Thomson multimedia. Installation of the equipment and antennas will be performed by DISH Network's national installation network, EchoStar said.
Meanwhile, EchoStar's DISH Network took the wraps off its "WOW - Free Satellite TV" fall promotion, an offering that delivers a $22.99 per-month programming package containing 60 channels and free installation.
The marketing campaign will reach consumers with an extensive nationwide schedule of print, radio and television advertising.
The specifics: New customers will be offered a $12.50 equipment credit each month for a year when they purchase a Dish301 satellite TV system for $149 and subscribe to America's Top 50 programming package for $22.99 a month. For those who want TV in two rooms, EchoStar offers new customers a $17 equipment credit per month for a year when they purchase two Dish301 receivers for $199 and subscribe to America's Top 50 programming package. An additional $4.99 monthly fee for programming activation of the second receiver is required.

Although for awhile there Dish was denying they were going to be in Wal-Mart stores.
My advice is SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL DEALER.
Lets see if Wal-Mart helps you with any problems you have.

Not initially. All the reports I've seen and heard say that Thomson will be building the existing E* receivers and branding them as RCA.
Hopefully E* will eventually let them do some designs of their own. It would definitely be nice to see some different options.
