The satellite TV service provider recorded revenue of $3.57 billion, which slipped 0.6% from 2011, and disappointed Wall Street, which had expected revenue of $3.64 billion, Reuters noted. Adjusted EPS for the quarter was 59 cents. Analysts had predicted adjusted earnings of 68 cents a share.
Shares of Dish Network slid almost 2% in Wednesday morning trading.
The company reported that it had stemmed subscriber losses. It lost 10,000 net subscribers during the second quarter, better than the 52,000 subscribers lost in the same time by rival DirecTV (NASDAQ:DTV), and considerably better than last year when Dish shed 135,000 subscribers.
Last week, DirecTV reported second-quarter earnings and revenue that increased compared to last year, but still missed Wall Street forecasts.
