Dish Network offers live TV on iPad

December 2, 2010

Dish Network has confirmed that Dish Remote Access, the free application that gives Dish Network customers in the US, the ability to watch their live and recorded TV on compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops, is now available for the iPad.

In addition to TV viewing, the Dish Remote Access app also gives Dish Network customers with compatible DVRs the ability to browse and search up to nine days of programming, schedule DVR recordings, manage conflicts, delete shows on multiple receivers, and transform the iPad into a fully-functioning remote control.

To access live and recorded TV viewing on the iPad, Dish Network customers must have a broadband-connected, Sling-enabled device such as the Sling Adapter – a small placeshifting device that pairs with DISH Network’s ViP 722 or 722k HD DVRs.  The DISH Remote Access app for the iPad can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store.
