For those looking to become a dealer, contact customintegrationsales@dish.com.

What would you say to dealers who are already familiar with your product line?

Take a look at our new CI BUYER sales program. The program was designed to suit privacy-minded clients who prefer to have their custom integrator handle account activations, service appointments and programming changes on their behalf.

What would you say to dealers who are stumbling across your company for the first time?

A partnership with DISH lets you offer customers a high performance, 4K-enabled whole house video platform that includes live TV, video-on-demand and built in Netflix. Seamless integration with the most popular control platforms lets you offer an integrated control experience that your clients will love.  

If an integrator stops by your booth with only 5 minutes to spare, what’s the one product he should examine or one question he should ask?

Take a look at DISH’s mobile solution: DISH Anywhere. You’ll see why DISH has engineered the most highly integrated mobile entertainment platform on the market.
