It has been confirmed that Bitcoin cash is the second cryptocurrency payment alternative by a subscription model pay-TV provider, DISH. The company has announced on its website that it will now receive bitcoin cash from subscribers.
DISH Network Corporation has played a vital role in the development of pay-TV since 1980. The company offers services to millions of customers worldwide through its different subsidiaries. The services include satellite DISH TV and streaming Sling TV services. Additionally, the company operates a national in-home installation workforce and advertising solutions in addition to other services.
DISH’s adoption of bitcoin coin coincides with the company’s shift to BitPay as a new blockchain payment processor for cryptocurrency transaction with customers.
John Swieringa, executive vice president and chief operating officer of DISH explains that the inclusion of bitcoin cash as a payment system is geared towards serving customers who have accepted a new way of doing business.
“We have a steady volume of customers paying with cryptocurrency each month, and BitPay will allow us to continue offering more choice and convenience to our customers.”
BitPay is the innovator company in bitcoin and blockchain payment processing. With branches in North America, Europe, and South America, the company is also established in cross-border payments and allows consumers to manage digital assets with the BitPay Wallet.
