DISH Network Introduces Portable Media Drive

EchoStar Communications' DISH Network satellite TV service rolled out its PocketDISH, a new line of portable media companions. The units can download or record content from a PC or Mac, digital cameras, mass storage devices, as well as other video or audio sources such as DVD players, camcorders and VCRs. DISH Network customers will enjoy a special feature of ultra-fast video transfer speeds when attaching PocketDISH to select DISH Network digital video recorders (DVRs) via a USB 2.0 connection. For instance, an hour of DISH Network programming can be transferred to the PocketDISH hard drive in about five minutes. Three models are available.

  • EchoStar currently serves more than 11.4 million satellite TV customers
