The pact isn’t as deep as Netflix would like — Dish is not offering Netflix video directly through its set-tops.

Can you get Netflix on Dish Satellite?
Dish TV customers can now access Netflix right from their set-top box. In a first for any satellite or cable service, Netflix is now being offered directly through Dish Network.
