DISH Network has rolled out a TV Everywhere offering, giving subscribers the ability to watch all of their live and recorded TV programs on compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops. Subscribers can access these features when they download and use the DISH Remote Access application in concert with their broadband-connected, Sling-enabled receiver.
To enjoy the live viewing capability of DISH Remote Access, consumers need to be DISH Network subscribers and have a Sling-enabled device such as the newly-released Sling Adapter – a small placeshifting device that pairs with DISH Network’s ViP 722 or 722k HD DVRs. With a Sling Adapter, customers can then view their HD or standard-definition DISH Network programming, including live and recorded shows, on compatible mobile devices or laptops.
The Sling Adapter is powered and operated through a USB connection, offering an easy, plug-and-play set-up without the need for any other wires or connectors. The Sling Adapter is available for $99 to new and current DISH Network customers.
The DISH Remote Access app is free and is powered by SlingPlayer mobile technology for support of 3G and Wi-Fi-enabled phones, laptops or tablets.
