DISH Anywhere

Everyone is now more engaged in their mobile devices rather than spending time watching TV. That is why it is not really surprising to see most cable and satellite service providers venturing into the mobile platform to attract the new crowd of audiences. DISH, for instance, has come up with the DISH Anywhere app that allows you to instantly watch thousands of movies and TV shows on your computer or mobile device. Unlike others, this service is being offered completely free provided that you already have a DISH Online account and the Hopper receiver. The app comes with a great number of entertaining features including access to live TV, the ability to manage DVR recordings, and many more.

DISH anywhereHow DISH Anywhere app works?

DISH Anywhere works in a very simple manner and is not complicated at all. You just have to download the app either from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to get started. It is also interesting to note that DISH Anywhere features a simple yet user-friendly interface that you can easily navigate and explore. DISH Anywhere requires an online DISH account, and a Hopper 2, or Hopper 3 receiver model for slinging Live TV and DVR. However, if you have a DISH Online account but do not own any of the supported receivers, you can still use the On-Demand and Live Stream features of the app.

After downloading the app and signing in using your existing DISH account, you will be prompted immediately to the home screen showcasing Top Picks, Live shows, featured shows, and on-demand. You also have quick access to Guide, Sports, and DVR pages. Generally, DISH Anywhere app simply turns your mobile phone into a live TV. You can also schedule and manage your DVR recordings all from one place. Just head over to the DVR section of the app to access your recordings. Best of all, you can easily transfer these DVR recordings straight to your devices (iPhone, iPad, or Mac) and watch them offline. Sports lovers can also use the app to set up-to-the-minute scores and game info for NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAAB, and NCAAF.
