US satellite television provider Dish has launched a new service to compete with satellite TV services from Europe, the UK and Australia.
Satellite Dish will offer its service in areas where there are no other cable providers offering broadband service.
It has announced the launch of its “Satellite TV Service” in the US.
The US launched a competition with the likes of Sky TV, Virgin Media and Sling TV in the spring, which was supposed to end with Dish offering its service, but has now gone into extended negotiations with broadcasters, which is expected to lead to the launch in the coming weeks.
Sling TV was a free service for subscribers of Virgin Media’s Slingbox TV, and Sledge TV, which launched last month.
Both services offer a free, high-definition television experience with no contracts, and offer access to a variety of other channels, including live sports.
Dish is targeting a range of markets, including Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago.
However, Dish is not yet offering its customers in the city of Los Angeles the service, which could lead to problems with the Los Angeles city government, who are looking to increase their broadband speeds.
Sledge TV and Virgin Media offer a range in the area of 5 Mbps down, with Dish’s offering at 8 Mbps.
It is also the same deal as other US TV providers such as DirecTV and Dish’s own US service, US Cellular, which provides speeds of 1 gigabit per second.
Dish has not yet launched its satellite service in other areas.
However it has also been in talks with broadcasters to expand the service in the near future, and the company is working to launch a service in India.
Satelink announced plans to launch in India in March, but the service is currently in talks to launch further in the country in the future.
Sprint Nextel, which operates the same US service as Dish, is also launching its service this year.
Sneaky Peek, a provider of cable television and broadband services, launched its service earlier this month.
