Dish Network reported a 3.6 percent rise in quarterly revenue as it earned more per user in its core pay-TV business, making up for a fall in subscribers.
The second-largest U.S. satellite TV company said average revenue per pay-TV user rose to $86.01 from $82.36.
Dish, which raised prices in February, said net pay-TV subscribers fell by about 134,000 in the first quarter ended March 31.
The company blamed the subscriber losses on blackouts of some channels due to disputes with media companies including Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting, 21st Century Fox and other local network affiliates.
Dish, which had 13.84 million subscribers as of March 31, was involved in a three-week dispute with Fox before signing a new distribution agreement on Jan. 15 that put Fox programming back on its service.
Dish customers faced a 12-hour blackout of CBS's programs and went for a month without Turner networks including CNN and Cartoon Network toward the end of last year before deals were reached to restore them.
The company said the impact of the programming interruptions, which began in the fourth quarter and continued in the first quarter, has since subsided.
Dish, the No. 2 U.S. satellite TV provider after DirecTV , has also been losing pay-TV subscribers in an increasingly competitive market, as rivals offer discounts to both new and existing subscribers.
