Who We are:

Fortune 250 company that continues to redefine the communications industry, with more than $12 billion in annual revenue. Our legacy is innovation and a willingness to challenge the status quo, including reinventing ourselves. We disrupted the pay-TV industry in the mid-90s with the launch of the satellite TV service, taking on some of the largest U.S. corporations in the process, and grew to be the fourth-largest pay-TV provider. We are doing it again with the first live, internet-delivered TV service that bucks traditional pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and watch television. Now we have our sights set on upending the wireless industry and unseating the entrenched incumbent carriers.

A key part of our initiative is a strategic focus on Blockchain technology to help enable growth across all our lines of business.

We are driven by curiosity, pride, adventure, and a desire to win. We’re looking for people with energy, intelligence, and an overwhelming desire to achieve to join our team as we embark on the next chapter of our story.
