Dish to offer new customers free Netflix for six months

Monday 2 June 2014 | 15:20 CET | News
Dish Network has signed a deal with Netflix to offer new Dish subscribers six months free of Netflix's subscription VoD service when they select Dish's Hopper digital video recorder, reported Variety.com. However, Dish is not offering Netflix video directly through its set-tops. Netflix already has deals with several cable operators, including Suddenlink Communications and three other smaller US MSOs, that are providing SVOD service through TiVo DVRs.
