Dish Network and Frontier Communications said they have agreed to a multi-year deal to bundle Dish’s programming service with the telco’s Internet and voice technology packages.
"Dish is a great partner for Frontier," said Frontier chairman and CEO Maggie Wilderotter in a statement. "It offers our customers access to a portfolio of award-winning brands. The bundled offerings pair Frontier broadband and voice services with a suite of Dish products and services, including the Hopper with Sling Whole-Home HD DVR. Frontier makes it simple by being a single and local point of contact for service and billing."
Dish and Frontier have bundled their services for years. Most recently the two teamed up to launch the “America’s Best Communities” (ABC) contest, a $10 million prize competition encouraging individuals and organizations to increase economic development and create positive change within their communities.
"We have worked with Frontier to make it even easier for consumers to design the highest value bundle for their information, connection, and entertainment needs," said Dish CEO Joseph Clayton in a statement. "I am pleased to continue this relationship with a company that shares our commitment to providing advanced technology solutions through an affordable, service-driven approach."
