Popular US satellite TV company Dish Network is planning to accept Bitcoin payments as soon as the third quarter.

Dish plans to use Coinbase's Instant Exchange, where users will be able to switch bitcoins for US dollars. This means customers will be able to tap into their Bitcoin wallets to pay online bills.

According to Dish, this would make it the biggest company so far to accept the currency for payments.

As we've mentioned before, Bitcoin is slowly but surely entering the mainstream discourse - no longer is the cryptocurrency solely for the use of enthusiasts , but a viable alternative, with TigerDirect just one company that recently began accepting Bitcoin payments.
