Dish, Emulex, Facebook: Tech Premarket

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Dish Network (DISH - Get Report) shares climbed 3.16% to $49 before market open on Tuesday after the satellite-TV provider blew past Wall Street's earnings forecast in its third-quarter results. 

The company reported sales of $3.6 billion, up from $3.52 billion in the prior year's quarter and above analysts' prediction of $3.58 billion. Subscriber-related revenue helped boost the company's numbers, growing 6.1% year over year to $3.47 billion. 

Excluding items, Dish earned 44 cents a share on net income of $315 million, compared to a loss of 35 cents a share and a net loss of $158 million in the prior year's quarter. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were looking for earnings of 44 cents a share. 

The company's total pay-TV customers increased by 35,000 and Dish ended the quarter with 14.049 million pay-TV subscribers, compared to 14.042 million pay-TV subscribers at the end of the same period last year. Dish added around 75,000 net broadband subscribers during the quarter, taking its broadband subscriber base to around 385,000.
