The “DISH Anywhere” app was upgraded this morning, new features include “On Demand Access” and new social sharing features for both iPhone and Android devices as well as a few new tweaks.
Now Dish customers can access ‘On Demand’ titles through the DISH Anywhere app on iPhones, Android phones and tablets as well as the iPad. The new social sharing features enable customers to share their mobile viewing with friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter. Dish Network has also improved the “on-the-go functionality” of the application. The “On Demand” programming needs Android (4.0 and higher) or Apple iOS (5.0 and higher) for those mobile devices. All DISH customers can access On Demand content associated with their programming package regardless of their set-top box model. The update also includes DISH Anywhere integration with Twitter and Facebook, giving consumers the ability to share their viewing experiences.
“The ability to watch TV anywhere is only as meaningful as the shows you can view”. DISH recently expanded access to its On Demand library to include iPhone and Android phones and tablets, a feature previously available only on the iPad. On Demand access brings viewers thousands of titles from a variety of networks that can be watched anywhere customers have an Internet connection. Since its launch in January, DISH Anywhere has transformed the ability of viewers to watch live and recorded programming anytime, anywhere.
“The ability to watch TV anywhere is only as meaningful as the shows you can view,” said Vivek Khemka, senior vice president of product at DISH. “By adding access to On Demand programming on iPhones and Android devices, only DISH gives customers the power to view all their shows, including live TV, DVR recordings and On Demand, at no extra cost.” (Remote viewing of live TV and DVR recordings requires a broadband-connected Sling-enabled DVR).
The app enhancements also allow users to instantly share their mobile viewing experiences on social networks. The new social networking feature enables viewers to post what they are watching in real-time on Facebook and Twitter. Consumers can create personalized comments to share with friends and family or, for quicker and easier postings, use hashtags and words already populated by the app.
Additionally, DISH Anywhere users can take advantage of the new “Audio Only” mode, allowing them to listen to any live or pre-recorded show while doing other activities like driving or interacting with other apps on their device.
Other viewing features of the DISH Anywhere mobile app include the ability to watch live TV channels in a user’s programming package via Sling technology, access their personal DVR and view up to eight days of network programming via PrimeTime Anytime. DISH Anywhere DVR management features include the ability to search for programs via the guide or use keywords, schedule recordings from the app, manage recording conflicts and delete recorded shows.
