DISH Network Corporation: 4Q 2017 earnings snapshot

Direct-broadcast satellite service provider DISH Network today reported a revenue decline of 7.2% for its fourth quarter to $3.48 billion. Earnings were hurt by a fall in subscriber-related revenue, which was driven by continuing decline in its DISH TV subscriber base.

However, the company’s earnings jumped to $1.39 billion from $355 million a year ago, thanks to the tax benefit from the recent Republican tax reform.
