Exclusive: Dish eyes 2014 bid for T-Mobile – sources

(Reuters) – Dish (DISH) is considering making a bid for T-Mobile (TMUS.N) next year, according to people close to the matter, in what would be the satellite TV provider’s second attempt in as many years at acquiring a major wireless operator and potentially setting the stage for a new bidding war with Softbank (TYO:9984). Dish Network Corp, which lost out to Japanese telecoms giant Softbank in its attempt to buy Sprint Corp (NYS:S) several months ago, has since been sizing up T-Mobile US Inc as a takeover candidate and has talked to majority owner Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE.DE) about a potential deal, the three sources said.
