Thursday 29 April 2021 | 13:51 CET | News
US pay-TV operator Dish Network reported sharply higher profits for the first quarter despite less pay-TV and wireless subscribers. The net profit leaped to USD 630 million or USD 0.99 per diluted share, from USD 73 million and 0.13 per share the year before when it wrote down assets. Revenue rose to USD 4.50 billion from 3.22 billion, helped by its takeover of the mobile assets from T-Mobile/Sprint.
