Name change on EchoStar's dish


NEW YORK -- EchoStar Communications will change its name to Dish Network Corp., which is already the brand it uses for its satellite TV service, the company said in a regulatory filing. The proposed change comes in connection with a planned spinoff of its technology operations into a separate company, which will retain the EchoStar name. Englewood-based EchoStar proposed the separation into two publicly traded companies in September.
