Dish Network Wants to Go MobileS

Oh, the irony. A wireless content distributor (Dish Network) needs somewhere between $500 million and $2 billion to support mobile (wireless) TV. Dish owns a chunk of the 700Mhz spectrum; now they just need a friend. But as Dish vice chairman Carl Voge put it, "We're a long, long, long way from building anything out. We're a long, long, long way from deciding who our partners will be..." I'm just not sure how "long" companies like Dish have before crafty wireless carriers coupled with 3G/4G technologies render their services obsolete. [Multichannel News via mocoNews]
