In a move to bring customers a wider variety of remote TV viewing options, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) today announced that its recently upgraded DISH Anywhere™ app is now available for download on Kindle Fire HDX tablets. The app, previously only available on Android and iOS devices, gives DISH customers the ability to watch all of their live TV programs, 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 video-on-demand 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 program guides, set recordings and manage their DVRs.
DISH recently announced the integration of the Hopper Transfers™ feature with the DISH Anywhere app during the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. The app now allows users to transfer recorded content from their Hopper with Sling DVRs to their mobile devices for viewing when an Internet connection is not available.
The DISH Anywhere app is available to download for free via the iTunes Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.
