Dish launches true TV Everywhere
November 19, 2010
US Dish Network has launched a ‘true TV Everywhere’ offering enabling Dish Network subscribers to watch live and recorded television programmes on compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Dish Network subscribers can access these features when they download and use the Dish Remote Access application via their broadband-connected, Sling-enabled receiver. Dish Network has introduced Sling Adapter, a device that pairs with Dish Network’s ViP 722 or 722k HD DVRs. With a Sling Adapter, customers can view their high-definition or standard-definition Dish Network programming. The Sling Adapter is powered and operated through a USB connection, offering a plug-and-play set-up without the need for wires or connectors. The Sling Adapter is available for $99 to new and current Dish Network customers.
The Dish Remote Access application is free and provides features such as live TV programming from all subscribed channels, DVR recordings, manage recordings and delete shows and a mobile device as a remote control.
