Dish Preps for Hurricane Season


EchoStar Communications Corp.’s Dish Network wants to be prepared for hurricane season.

The direct-broadcast satellite provider said it has alerted extra technicians to stand by, and it has reviewed methods that could allow customers to receive local channels of neighboring TV stations in affected areas.

“We're focused on helping to ensure that Dish Network customers get the critical news and information they need before, during and after the storm," vice president of programming Eric Sahl said in a prepared statement.
