Short Take: EchoStar subscriber numbers up

EchoStar Communications, a direct broadcast satellite (DBS) television company, added 103,000 new subscribers in February. The company had added 55,000 for the same month a year ago. The company claims it nabbed more than half of the new DBS industry customers last month. EchoStar has more than 2.1 million subscribers but trails DirecTV, the Hughes Electronics-owned competitor which recently acquired No. 4 USSB and No. 2 PrimeStar.
