ng and award-winning technology, the company markets a satellite broadband service under the dishNET brand. This service leverages advanced technology and high-powered satellites launched by Hughes and ViaSat to provide broadband coverage nationwide. This service primarily targets rural residents that are underserved, or unserved, by wireline broadband, and provides download speeds of up to 15 megabits of data per second (Mbps). The company leases the customer premise equipment to subscribers and generally pays Hughes and ViaSat a wholesale rate per subscriber on a monthly basis. The company generally utilizes its existing DISH distribution channels, including its DISH direct sales channels, under similar incentive arrangements as its DISH branded pay-TV business to acquire new broadband subscribers. In addition to the dishNET branded satellite broadband service, the company offers wireline voice and broadband services under the dishNET brand as a competitive local exchange carrier to consumers living in a 14-state region (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming). The company’s dishNET branded wireline broadband service provides download speeds of up to 20 Mbps. The company primarily bundles its dishNET branded services with its DISH branded pay-TV service, to offer customers a single bill, payment and customer service option, which includes a discount for bundled services. In addition, the company markets and sells its dishNET branded services on a stand-alone basis. New Business Opportunities Over-the-top television: In February 2015, the company launched Sling TV, a live, linear streaming OTT service. At launch, the core package consisted of approximately 14 channels. In addition to the core programming package, Sling TV offers additional tiers of programming, including news and children’s programming, each for an additional monthly fee, as well as a video on-demand programming library. Sling TV requires an Internet connection and is available through certain streaming-capable devices. The company markets its OTT services primarily to consumers who do not subscribe to traditional satellite and cable pay-TV services. Content Delivery Digital Broadcast Operations Centers: The principal digital broadcast operations facilities that the company uses are EchoStar’s facilities located in Cheyenne, Wyoming and Gilbert, Arizona. The company also uses seven regional digital broadcast operations facilities owned and operated by EchoStar that allow the company to maximize the use of the spot beam capabilities of certain satellites. Programming content is delivered to these facilities by fiber or satellite and processed, compressed, encrypted and then uplinked to satellites for delivery to consumers. EchoStar provides certain broadcast services to the company, including teleport services such as transmission and downlinking, channel origination services, and channel management services pursuant to a broadcast agreement that expires on December 31, 2016. Satellites: The company’s DISH branded programming is primarily delivered to customers using satellites that operate in the Ku band portion of the microwave radio spectrum. The Ku-band is divided into two spectrum segments. The portion of the Ku-band that allows the use of higher power satellites (12.2 to 12.7 GHz over the United States) is known as the Broadcast Satellite Service band, which is also referred to as the DBS band. The portion of the Ku-band that utilizes lower power satellites (11.7 to 12.2 GHz over the United States) is known as the FSS band. Most of the company’s programming is delivered using DBS satellites. The company owns or leases capacity on 14 DBS satellites in geostationary orbit approximately 22,300 miles above the equator. Conditional Access System: The company’s conditional access system secures its programming content using encryption so that only authorized customers can access its programming. The company uses microchips embedded in credit card-sized access cards, called smart cards, or security chips in its receiver systems to
