Short Take: Loral Skynet and EchoStar team to launch new service

Loral Skynet and EchoStar Satellite have agreed to form an alliance to offer new digital-based services to cable operators, programmers, and consumers directly. The alliance will create a digital video broadcast platform that allows programming to be packaged separately but received in the same set-top box through a single smart card and electronic guide.
