Those with Dish know that the end of the summer and the fall is the most important time of the year for television viewing. The fall season of network television shows will start and football is all over the dial.
So, it’s great to see Dish making an improvement and an update to it’s Dish Anywhere app.
Dish provides the most choices and gives you the best value.
Dish subscribers enjoy HD service with more than 200 national HD channels, the biggest selection of international channels, and award-winning HD and DVR technology.
The update to Dish Anywhere just picks up on this theme.
Dish Anywhere now gives Hopper with Sling customers some new capabilities. They can view live, recorded and Video On Demand content at home or on-the-go, right on their mobile device.
Subscribers also get a new interface to use, which makes things so much easier.
“Dish Anywhere has been embraced by DISH customers as the premier platform for watching television shows while on the go,” said Vivek Khemka, Dish senior vice president of product management. “This is a powerful upgrade; the app’s streamlined design creates a user-friendly experience while giving consumers a dynamic way to engage and discover new programs.”
Per Dish, here are the new features:
Customers can add shows and movies to a “Watchlist,” consolidating desired TV programs into an easily-accessible queue for future viewing.
This drop down menu gives customers the ability to quickly resume recently viewed recordings and Video On Demand titles.
This feature aggregates information from the Guide, DVR recordings and Video On Demand into one place so users can easily see all of the available ways to watch a specific program, including, if a show is currently on TV, when upcoming episodes are airing, and whether or not episodes are recorded on their Hopper or accessible within Video On Demand.
Previously available only on Hopper and DISH Explorer™, the What’s Hot feature makes it easy to find a TV show, movie or sports event to watch by highlighting the most popular programs based on real-time data from viewers. Programs can be filtered by local or national viewership and different genres.
Customers can control their TV from their tablet using a built-in DISH remote. This includes the ability to turn a TV on/off, change channels, adjust volume, access the Hopper menu, and set and playback recorded content.
And don’t forget about “recommendations” and the ability customers now have to discover new shows based on what might be watching right now have watched in the past.
The new refresh to Dish Anywhere is available for iPads, Android and Kindle tablets, and all for free.
It will arrive for iPhone and Android smart phones later this year. For more details, please visit www.dish.com or call 1-800-333-DISH.
