Since it was in the Bitcoin Discussion thread secondary link
http://www.coindesk.com/dish-becomes-worlds-largest-company-accept-bitcoin/

Anyways Dish Network advertises a lot so most Americans and Canadians have a brand familiarity with their company
(Advertising on Cable)

Still its great news.

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

DISH is a true technological giant. One of the biggest stocks (in terms of market cap) in the NASDAQ exchange.  Grin

This is amazing. Great way to win over some customers from Direct TV. If DISH can steals away enough customers from Direct TV, it may cause Direct TV and their parent company (AT&T) to decide to accept BTC as a payment method as well.
Really huge deal to begin with...but this could turn into the biggest thing to ever happen to bitcoin.

I think Dish accepting it kind of boosted up the price a little, well the Media coverage, at least. And they're going to start on July 1st, right?

If we look at the volume of transactions, it is clear that DISH is much bigger than any of the currently existing pro-Bitcoin retailers (including Overstock). But still, this news has not received as much coverage as it deserves from the mainstream media.  Angry

You know the media, sometimes they focus on it sometimes they skip things.
I'm sure we will see a lot of this type of news later when they catch up.

Hmm.. I was just comparing the media coverage on this announcement and comparing it to that when Zynga, Wordpress and Overstock made similar announcements on Bitcoin.
