Dish's Clayton dishes on broadband wireless, pay TV consolidation and more

Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) is still trying to flesh out its wireless plans, but it has plenty of balls in the air on other fronts. During the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, Steve Donohue, editor of FierceCable, sat down with Dish CEO Joseph Clayton. In addition to talking about Dish's broadband wireless and over-the-top video ambitions, the former Sirius XM chairman offers his thoughts on pay TV consolidation, CES, and 4K Ultra HD TV. Clayton said that in suburban America, Dish might launch broadband services via fixed wireless, as it is trialing with nTelos Wireless and Sprint.
