It’s an exciting time for our business. The way Americans consume entertainment, access information and communicate with each other is changing constantly. While this presents tremendous growth potential for our industry, it also brings a complex set of regulatory needs and opportunities.

We created this blog to highlight our position on key policy issues impacting our business in DC and beyond. Here you will find news, statements and perspectives from the DISH government relations team that we hope are helpful to those following our business and broader industry.
