Dish Network was the first big pay-TV proponent of DVRs, an early -- and big -- buyer of spectrum and has always been a company making the world of entertainment delivery more competitive, exciting and unpredictable.

In this podcast, Light Reading editors Mike Dano and Jeff Baumgartner join their colleagues Phil Harvey and Kelsey Ziser to discuss the past, present and future of Dish Network, the 22-year-old, $15 billion company that is suddenly right smack in the middle of the Sprint/T-Mobile merger conversation.

We scan the headlines of Dish's past, we talk about its capacity and drive to build a wireless network and then we guess the headlines that might come in the near future, as Dish looks to make a move beyond slinging TV channels and into the realm of 5G nationwide service providers.

The Light Reading podcast is available on Google Play, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and SoundCloud.

It's going to take some televisionary moves for pay-TV providers and big studio owners like AT&T to sort out what consumers want, how to package it and what to call it.
Machine learning is primed to help service providers run more efficient and effective networks, but first the good ideas have to make their way from the lab to the real world – and that's a big challenge, according to the University of Chicago's Nick Feamster.
Light Reading's Kelsey Ziser discusses the world of SD-WAN, why there are so many vendors and whether enterprise 'white glove' services are handled by butlers.
The pay-TV feature set has finally met its match and, even if you don't cut the cord for budget reasons, you should give some other options a try.
