Frontier re-ups deal to bundle Dish Network video services

Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) has signed a multiyear extension to continue letting Frontier Communications bundle its satellite video services with Frontier's bundled broadband and voice packages.

Based in Stamford, Conn., Frontier is a leading supplier of broadband and voice services to rural areas in the U.S. It packages Dish video services in select regions, using the satellite operator's proprietary set-tops.

"Dish is a great partner for Frontier," said Maggie Wilderotter, chairman and CEO of Frontier, in a statement. "It offers our customers access to a portfolio of award-winning brands. The bundled offerings pair Frontier broadband and voice services with a suite of Dish products and services, including the Hopper with Sling Whole-Home HD DVR. Frontier makes it simple by being a single and local point of contact for service and billing."

Added Dish president and CEO Joseph Clayton: "We have worked with Frontier to make it even easier for consumers to design the highest value bundle for their information, connection, and entertainment needs. I am pleased to continue this relationship with a company that shares our commitment to providing advanced technology solutions through an affordable, service-driven approach."
