Dish Network, parent company of Blockbuster, is expected to enter the wireless business sometime next year, becoming a new rival to the major carriers in the nation.
Blockbuster currently sells phones online through "Blockbuster Mobile," partnering with Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile USA.
The company still has 850 retail locations and the phones will be available in every location.
Dish has been purchasing spectrum and infrastructure for years and has been looking for a partner (Google has been rumored) before launching.
