I guess the strategic alliance with Philips Consumer Electronics is paying off. While visiting Price Costco in Hackensack NJ, I was amazed to see a big display for The Dish Network. The products and prices were as follows:
Installation Service - $149.99
Echostar DBS IR Basic System - $189.99
Echostar Dual LNB Satellite Dish System - $279.99
Echostar 2nd Receiver - $124.99
I spoke to the guy at Merchandise Pick Up and he said they were selling well.
Additionally, a friend of mine said his Portuguese landlord had recently purchased the Dish Network with two dishes. One dish is to receive the premium programming package, the second is to receive all the TV channels from Portugal so he can follow his favorite soccer team. I was not even aware of this option.
I currently own 1,000 shares in my IRA and I will be buying some for my cash account. I am convinced that this stock will double within 3-5 years.
