Clearwire expands distribution through DirecTV, EchoStar

Wireless broadband provider Clearwire is making some interesting distribution deals. The company, which recently expanded its distribution agreement with AOL to include all U.S. Clearwire markets, today announced that satellite TV providers DirecTV and Echostar will be bundling Clearwire with their video services to consumers later this year.

The deal says that EchoStar and DirecTV will have access to Clearwire's wireless high-speed network and will be able to market a bundle that includes Clearwire service to their residential customers. They also will be able to sell the Clearwire service separately on a stand-alone basis.
