DISH has recently announced that it has upgraded the DISH Anywhere app, and the same is available for download on Kindle Fire HDX tablets. This app is perfect for customers who are looking for an app to watch all of their live TV programs, DVR recordings, and many of the On Demand titles on-the-go.
“After launching the newest version of the pay-TV industry’s only all-in-one app for remote television viewing earlier this year, we have delivered on our promise to extend the app’s availability to Kindle Fire owners,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, Director of Product Management at DISH.
DISH introduced the innovative technology called Hooper with sling recently, which allows users to view their live TV and recorded DVR shows through an active internet connection. Users just need to hook their Hopper with Sling to the internet (either wired or with the new Wi-Fi connection), and watch from any desktop or laptop computer, iPad, or approved Tablet/Smartphone device.
Now with the newly enahnced app, users can connect their Hopper with Sling to high-speed Internet or simply connect their Hopper, ViP 722 or 722k HD DuoDVR to a Sling adapter with a single USB cable and high-speed Internet service, to watch their favorite program.
The app also allows users to view program guides, set recordings and manage their DVRs. They can also view live, recorded and video-on-demand content at home or remotely from their smart phones and tablets when connected to either Wi-Fi or a 3G/4G connection.
What’s more, the app also lets users to transfer recorded content from their Hopper with Sling DVRs to their mobile devices for viewing when an Internet connection is not accessible.
“By offering DISH Anywhere to this new group of tablet owners, we continue to show that we are dedicated to the expanding mobile market by allowing our customers to watch everything, anywhere no matter what mobile device they are using,” Chaudhari added.
