DISH TV Everywhere Technology Now Available on iPad
DISH is the only pay-TV provider with comprehensive TV Everywhere™ technology and the DISH Remote Access app is a key element of that capability.
Customers can watch live and recorded TV anytime, anywhere using the app in concert with an Internet-connected DISH receiver and a Sling® Adapter. On the iPad, DISH offers the added ability to stream thousands of titles from an expansive on-demand library of Blockbuster titles and premium networks.
In addition to the on-demand programs, the DISH app lets customers with an iPad access shows recorded using PrimeTime Anytime™, an exclusive feature found on the DISH Hopper™ Whole-Home HD DVR. PrimeTime Anytime allows customers, with one click, to record all of the primetime TV programming on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC in high definition. Programs recorded with PrimeTime Anytime are available on the Hopper (and through the DISH Remote Access app) for eight days after they have aired.
