Early Crypto Adopter Dish Network Now Accepts Bitcoin Cash
Dish Network, one of the first major companies to accept Bitcoin as a payment method, today announced that it has received bitcoin cash.
Support for the second cryptocurrency came four years after US-based subscriber TV providers decided to first approve Bitcoin in 2014. At that time, it was the largest company in the world to accept Bitcoin, which boasts 14 million subscribers.
Cooking customers can now use both Crypto Calls to pay monthly subscriptions and pay-per-view movies.
According to this release, customers must send the exact bit coin or bit coin cash required for one-time payments on their website or set-top box.
John Swieringa, senior vice president and chief operating officer at Dish, added in the press release: "We have added bit coin cash as we decided to offer Bitcoin to customers who have adopted a new business approach.
With this announcement, Dish has switched the password-paying processor and said BitPay will use the services it offers to give users more "choice and convenience".
BitPay is one of the largest cryptocurrency payment providers. In particular, we raised $ 40 million in Series B fund raising in April.
SonNet Singh from BitPay CCO said about integration with the plate:
"Cryptocurrency is a popular way for consumers to buy online because it reduces credit card fraud and is cheaper for merchants."
