SONY READY TO JOIN RCA IN MINI-DISH MARKET
Published May 9, 1995
Sony Corp. will begin selling "turkey-tray shaped" mini satellite dishes next month, joining Thomson Consumer Electronic's RCA in the market. The prices of Sony's three dishes will range between $750-950. Like RCA's dishes, Sony's will be programmed by Hughes Electronic's DirecTV and Hubbard Broadcasting's USSB. In an exclusive deal with Hughes, RCA had sole rights to the market for the first 1 million dishes sold or 18 months, which ever came first (AP/ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 5/9).
