Net income rose to $432 million, or 82 cents a share, from $297 million, or 57 cents a share. The company said the results were helped by a change in accounting standards.

Dish said it lost 341,000 subscribers in the quarter, which was bigger than the 16,000 subscribers it last a year ago. It had 10.286 million Dish TV subscribers and 2.370 million Sling TV subscribers. Its total 12.656 million pay-TV subscribers is down 4% from 13.203 million a year ago.
