Customers Can Now Order Movie Tickets from the Comfort of Their Couches DISH Network just made buying movie tickets a lot easier. Now, customers of the digital satellite television service who tune into DISH Network Ch. 100 will find an interactive Fandango application, which allows them to purchase movie tickets using their DISH Network remote control. The new Fandango application, powered by OpenTV middleware, automatically uses customers' zip codes to search for nearby theater listings and show times. Subscribers with phone lines connected to their set-top boxes can use their DISH Network remote control and credit card to purchase tickets at Fandango-enabled theaters through a secure connection. To redeem tickets, customers present their credit card at the movie theater as proof of purchase. No confirmation code is required. DISH Network subscribers can also search theater listings and show times outside of their set-top box zip code. DISH Network's iTV service features more than 30 interactive channels, DishGAMES, DishHOME Ch. 100's six-channel mosaic and a variety of games and other features. There are more than 20 million iTV enabled DISH Network set-top boxes in the U.S. For more information on DISH Network or to order DISH Network today for only $9.99 a month for 6 months call Dish Systems today – at 866-989-3474 or visit Dish Systems online.
