                                          EXHIBIT 3

                         OTHER LICENSES AND APPLICATIONS
                               (Response to Question 36)


        In a Memorandum Opinion and Order released May 16, 2002, the Satellite Division of
the International Bureau cancelled two conditional construction permits held by affiliates of
DISH Network Corporation (with its affiliates, “DISH”) for 22 channels at the 175º W.L. orbital
location. See EchoStar Satellite Corporation, Directsat Corporation, Direct Broadcasting Satellite
Corporation, Consolidated Request for Additional Time to Commence Operation, Memorandum
Opinion and Order, DA 02-1164 (rel. May 16, 2002).

        By an Order released July 1, 2002, the International Bureau cancelled DISH’s license for
a Ka-band satellite system and dismissed a related modification application filed by DISH. See
EchoStar Satellite Corporation; Application for Authority to Construct, Launch, and Operate a
Ka-band Satellite System in the Fixed-Satellite Service, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA
02-1534 (rel. July 1, 2002). On November 8, 2002, the International Bureau reinstated DISH’s
license for a Ka-band system as well as the related modification application. See EchoStar
Satellite Corporation; Application for Authority to Construct, Launch, and Operate a Ka-band
Satellite System in the Fixed-Satellite Service, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 02-3085
(rel. Nov. 8, 2002).

        In a Memorandum Opinion and Order released April 29, 2004, the International Bureau
denied, in part, four applications filed by DISH to operate GSO FSS satellites using the Ka
and/or Extended Ku-bands at the 83º W.L., 105º W.L, 113º W.L, and 121º W.L orbital locations.
See EchoStar Satellite LLC, Applications for Authority to Construct, Launch, and Operate
Geostationary Satellites in the Fixed-Satellite Service Using the Ka and/or Extended Ku Bands at
the 83º W.L., 105º W.L, 113º W.L, and 121º W.L orbital locations, Memorandum Opinion and
Order, DA 04-1167 (rel. Apr. 29, 2004). DISH’s petition for reconsideration of this decision was
denied. See EchoStar Satellite LLC, Petition for Reconsideration, Applications for Authority to
Construct, Launch, and Operate Geostationary Satellites in the Fixed-Satellite Service Using the
Ka and/or Extended Ku Bands at the 83º W.L., 105º W.L, 113º W.L, and 121º W.L orbital
locations, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 06-865 (rel. Apr. 14, 2006).

        In a Memorandum Opinion and Order released August 3, 2004, the International Bureau
declared null and void the space station authorization held by VisionStar, a DISH affiliate, for
use of the Ka-band at the 113º W.L. orbital location. See VisionStar, Inc., Application for
Modification of Authority to Construct, Launch and Operate a Ka-Band Satellite System in the
Fixed Satellite Service, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 04-2449 (rel. Aug. 3, 2004).

       By letter dated May 19, 2005, the Satellite Division of the International Bureau denied
DISH’s applications for a Fleet Management Modification and for a Special Temporary
Authority to move the EchoStar 4 satellite to 61.5° W.L., pending the Commission’s
consideration of another DISH request to move the satellite to 77° W.L., on the grounds that the
purpose of the proposed fleet management modification was not consistent with the purposes of
the Commission’s rules and that there were no extraordinary circumstances for the grant of


temporary authority. See Letter from Thomas S. Tycz, Chief, Satellite Division, International
(rel. Jun. 3, 2005).

        In a Memorandum Opinion and Order released June 3, 2005, the International Bureau
denied DISH’s application for a Special Temporary Authority to move the EchoStar 4 satellite to
77° W.L. on the grounds that DISH had failed to establish extraordinary circumstances for the
grant of such authority. See EchoStar Satellite L.L.C., Application for Special Temporary
Authority to Conduct Telemetry, Tracking and Command Operations During the Relocation of
EchoStar 4 to the 77° W.L. Orbital Location, Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 05-1581
(rel. Jun. 3, 2005). However, the International Bureau later granted partial reconsideration of this
order and then granted DISH’s request to move the satellite to 77º W.L. where it would operate
pursuant to Mexican authority. See EchoStar Satellite L.L.C., Application for Special Temporary
Authority to Conduct Telemetry, Tracking and Command Operations During the Relocation of
EchoStar 4 to the 77° W.L. Orbital Location, Order on Reconsideration, DA 05- 2067 (rel. Jul.
25, 2005); EchoStar Satellite L.L.C., Application for Special Temporary Authority to Conduct
Telemetry, Tracking and Command Operations During the Relocation of EchoStar 4 to the 77°
W.L. Orbital Location, Order and Authorization, DA 06-868 (rel. Apr. 18, 2006).

        By Memorandum Opinion and Order released May 31, 2012, the International Bureau
denied DISH’s request to suspend operations on Direct Broadcast Service (“DBS”) channels at
the 148º W.L. location in August 2009 and denied DISH’s request that the Commission hold its
decision in abeyance until 90 days after the launch of EchoStar 16. The Commission further
stated that it will make DBS channels 1-32 at the 148º W.L. orbital location available for
reassignment when the Commission lists the freeze for filing new DBS applications. See DISH
Operating L.L.C. Application to Suspend Operations at the 148º W.L. Orbital Location,
Memorandum Opinion and Order, DA 12-859 (rel. May 31, 2012).
