Dish to Sell Converter Box With DVR Functions

Nov 12, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Dish Network next week will start selling what it says is the first digital-to-analog converter box that includes digital video recorder functions, as it tries to retain customers in advance of the U.S. switchover to all-digital broadcasting in February.
The No. 2 U.S. satellite television service, behind DirecTV, will let subscribers start preordering the set-top box Nov. 19, with sales expected to start in mid-December, Dish said in a statement Tuesday.
The DTVPal DVR, which will be able to record either 150 hours of standard-definition programming or 30 hours of HD, will cost $249, including a $50 rebate from Dish.
The set-top box is part of an effort by Dish to stem customer defection to cable companies or telecommunications services. Earlier this week, the company said its third-quarter earnings fell 54% as it lost customers for the second straight quarter, despite spending more to keep them.
