http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/blog/boosters_bits/2012/06/dish-network-lays-claim-to.htmlDish Network or its affiliated companies applied to control web address ending in .dish, .blockbuster, .hughes, and .sling. Dish Network owns Blockbuster video rental and streaming company. The latter two top-level domains would correspond to the Hughes Communications subsidiary of sister company EchoStar, and to its Sling Media technology.
But Dish also got inventive, applying for top-level domains that would mean it could control web addresses ending in .movie, .phone, .locker, .data, .dot, .stream, .dvr, .latino and .ott (which corresponds with "over-the-top," a reference to Internet-delivered television).
And then it also applied for .direct and .dtv.
