After Sprint, Dish Can’t Give Up the Chase
Dish Network is searching for a new signal.
Having called off its bids for Sprint Nextel and Clearwire, the satellite-television operator is at a crossroads. It faces a declining business and has been amassing wireless spectrum, which its Chairman Charlie Ergen wants to use to transition into a new business. Doing that requires partnering with a national carrier.
Two options remain: bid for yet another carrier or sell itself to one.
