Dish Network has detailed an upcoming update to their Android app. Specifically, the Dish Anywhere app. This update will bring something called "Transfers" and is expected to arrive before the end of the year.

Google and Dish Network are in talks to bring a new wireless service that would be aimed at rivaling the big carriers such as AT&T and Verizon. According to a report for the Wall Street Journal, the talks are not incredibly advanced, and they very well could amount to nothing.
