Dish Network has inked a new Retail Partner Program deal with INCOMPAS, the internet and competitive networks association, that will allow its members to resell Dish’s video products.
Through the program, Dish will alow service providers to offer their customers video platforms and products including Hopper 3, Dish’s whole-home DVR featuring integrated apps like Netflix, voice remote and the ability to record up to 16 live TV shows at once.
Dish Anywhere, the company’s TV Everywhere streaming app, and Dish Outdoors, its live TV solutions for tailgating, camping off-roading or RVing; will also be available. INCOMPAS members can also offer virtual MVPD service Sling TV and AirTV – the company’s Android-based OTT streaming device that integrates local over-the-air channels into one guide with one remote and includes full access to the Google Play Store.
“We are excited to work with Dish to offer this innovative Retail Partner Program. This agreement is good for our members and their customers because it enables service providers to offer differentiated, value-added video and streaming services to their residential and business customers,” said INCOMPAS CEO Chip Pickering, in a statement.
In the spirit of the partner program, Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen will deliver the keynote address at the 2019 INCOMPAS Show, taking place November 4-6 in Louisville, Kentucky.
“As we look to grow our retailer network, we seek companies that are innovative, competitive and put customers first,” said Amir Ahmed, Dish’s senior vice president of sales, in a statement. “INCOMPAS members share our passion for connecting consumers to the content they want and the technology they need, and they are a great fit for our program. We are proud to become the official video provider of INCOMPAS and look forward to welcoming members to our Dish retailer family.”
