Welcome to DISH, Texas.

Ryan Block, @ryan

DISH city limit

Looks like they found a taker in Clark, Texas, who took EchoStar up on their offer to rename their humble town of fifty five homes and 125 people, DISH. Yes, that's DISH, TX. And in return the town's residents get ten years of free service for their humility and acquiescence to corporate branding — at an estimated net value of $4,500 per home. Congratulations! Though as long as the word's still out on all-you-can-eat Pay-Per-View we're not gonna be putting our respective places on the market. Hook that up — hoo boy — and we might all have to relocate.
