LAS VEGAS -- January 7, 2013

Today, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) introduced the Hopper Transfers™ app, an exclusive
feature for the new Hopper™ with Sling® Whole-Home HD DVR that lets customers
move television recordings from the DVR to an iPad for viewing without an
Internet connection.

“Hopper Transfers completes the TV Everywhere equation by giving DISH
customers the ability to take their recorded television programs and watch
them even when no Internet connection is available, such as on a plane,” said
Vivek Khemka, vice president of Product Management at DISH. “For the first
time, customers can truly enjoy their DISH service anytime, anywhere.”

With the Hopper Transfers app, customers can set up their Hopper with Sling to
prepare television recordings for mobile viewing. Recordings are then
transferred from Hopper to an iPad via the home’s Wi-Fi connection. Each
mobile recording transferred features Digital Rights Management technology and
is limited to one mobile transfer per recording. Once a recorded television
program is finished encoding for mobile viewing, a 30-minute program takes
approximately five minutes to move to an iPad.

Other features include:

  *Ability to schedule transfers of single episodes or television series.
  *Parental locks that block or limit selected programming.
  *All the technology necessary to move television recordings from DVR to
    iPad. No additional cords or adapters required.

The Hopper Transfers feature builds upon DISH’s industry-leading TV Everywhere
solutions, including the Hopper with Sling, the new DISH Anywhere app and the
www.dishanywhere.com online portal. These products allow DISH subscribers to
access their live TV and DVR television recordings on mobile devices over the
Internet. Live mobile viewing is enabled using Sling technology and is now
integrated into the new Hopper with Sling.

In conjunction with the release later this month of DISH’s new Hopper with
Sling, the Hopper Transfers app will be available in Apple’s App Store.
