The history between these two companies brought forth satellite TV services to the masses. DIRECTV – founded in 1990 as part of Hughes Electronics under the name Sky Cable – has a long history.However, DISH Network actually goes back much further than DIRECTV and was originally a part of EchoStar, founded in 1980. EchoStar provided global satellite services and developed hybrid video delivery technologies. In 1992, EchoStar was granted a direct broadcast satellite license and orbital access. In 1995, they launched their first satellite into orbit with EchoStar 1, and in 1996, DISH Network was formed.DISH Network then became its own separate entity and has proven through time why it is the leader in quality entertainment services. Remaining partners with the technologically driven and innovative EchoStar, DISH Network continues to provide premium, cutting edge services and products to over 14 million subscribers. See why DISH Network is the smarter choice!
