ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DISH accepted its first bitcoin payment this week as the payment option is now available for all DISH customers through mydish.com. Today's inaugural bitcoin transaction follows DISH's recent announcement that DISH customers could pay their monthly bill with bitcoin starting in the third quarter.
Austin and Beccy Craig, the stars of a new documentary film "Life on Bitcoin," were the first DISH customers to pay with the digital currency. The Craigs spent the first 101 days of their marriage paying exclusively with bitcoin. The documentary will soon be released chronicling their adventure and educating viewers about bitcoin.
"DISH is a leading example of how the world is becoming friendlier with new ways of buying products and services," said Austin Craig. "When we shot our film last year, we struggled to watch TV or go to a movie paying with bitcoin. Now, a leader in TV technology is embracing this bitcoin movement from a tech-savvy crowd."
"DISH is now accepting bitcoin because we are listening to customers and providing them with the choice and convenience they want," said Bernie Han, DISH executive vice president and Chief Operating Officer. "When we announced that DISH customers could pay with bitcoin, we heard some enthusiastic feedback from bitcoin users. Starting today, they can choose bitcoin as a payment option for their monthly bill."
As announced in May, DISH has selected Coinbase as the payment processor for bitcoin transactions with customers who choose to pay their bill online with the bitcoin wallet of their choice. DISH will use Coinbase's Instant ExchangeTM feature to exchange bitcoin payments to U.S. dollars at the moment of the transaction.
The bitcoin payment option is now available for DISH customers choosing to make one-time payments on mydish.com. Customers will still have the option to make any payment online via credit card, debit card or bank account.
To ensure fans can find the action when SEC Network officially launches on August 14, DISH announced it will air on channel 404 within the Hopper® Whole Home HD DVR's channel guide. Current DISH customers who subscribe to the America's Top 120+ package and above will receive both SEC Network and Longhorn Network at no additional cost.
"Saturday is the new Sunday and DISH is proud to deliver the best in college sports with SEC Network, Pac-12 Networks, Big Ten Network and Longhorn Network," said Joseph P. Clayton, DISH President and CEO. "DISH was the first nationwide provider to secure rights for SEC Network when we announced our deal in March, and we have been welcoming college football fans for months. We cannot wait for kickoff."
To celebrate the upcoming football season, new DISH customers who subscribe to the America's Top 120+ and above package by October 21, 2014, will also receive the Multi-Sport package included through the end of the year. The Multi-Sport programming delivers more than 35 channels of college and professional sports including the Big Ten Network (channel 405 on the Hopper), Pac-12 Networks (channel 406 on the Hopper), ESPN Goal Line, NFL Red Zone from NFL Network, and more than 20 regional sports networks. A full list of channels can be accessed here. In addition, when new DISH customers mention the offer code "FLAG" they can receive a flag of the SEC or Pac-12 team of their choice to further show their support this season.
