Written By Sam on 24 November 2010

Dish Network subscribers can now watch recorded and live TV programs on smartphones, tablets and laptops as the company has introduced the first True TV Everywhere service, becoming the first pay-TV to do so in the US.Β This facility transfers to the consumer once you download the Dish Remote Access application with the broadband connected Sling-enabled receiver. The newly-introduced Sling Adapter allows live TV viewing on iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry devices.

Differentiating from mobile viewing through other operators that allow limited access, TV everywhere offers 24X7 accesses to all program content including the DISH Network subscription.

If you are Dish Network subscriber just obtain the Sling Adapter to enjoy its live viewing capability. It operates and gets power by a USB connection, which offers simple plug to play cable free installation. It is available for just $99 while the DISH Remote Access application is free of cost.

Features that Dish Remote Access provides are:

  • Live TV programs on all subscribed channels
  • All DVR recordings can be viewed
  • Manage the recording and deletion of shows
  • A mobile device can be used as a remote
  • Supports 3G and Wi-Fi-enabled phones, laptops and tablets, which include iPhone and iPad Touch, Android, Windows and MAC computers as well as BlackBerry. The company has promised to expand its menu of compatible devices.

    I love my TV Everywhere! I think it’s absolutely wonderful that DISH Network is becoming so far advanced in their technology. Since working with DISH I made sure to purchase the sling adapter when available, and I have been so happy with it. Who would have thought such a small piece of equipment would offer so much?! Needless to say I will never be missing an episode of American Idol again no matter where I am! πŸ™‚
