DISH Anywhere app on Kindle Fire

March 6, 2014

In a move to bring customers a wider variety of remote TV viewing options, DISH has announced that its recently upgraded DISH Anywhere app is now available for download on Kindle Fire HDX tablets in the US. The app, previously only available on Android and iOS devices, gives DISH customers the ability to watch all of their live TV programmes, DVR recordings and thousands of 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. “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.”

Through the DISH Anywhere app, DISH Hopper with Sling DVR owners can view live, recorded and VoD content at home or remotely from their smart phones and tablets when connected to either Wi-Fi or a 3G/4G connection. Additionally, the app gives users the ability to view programme guides, set recordings and manage their DVRs.
