I'm am sorry for being blunt, but the app was not well maintained. It might have been a great app, once upon a time. I currently have the iPhone 8+ and it looks very bad on it. It was designed for a smaller screen, and when it's used on a big screens the proportion are off. There are countless bugs. If the control center is open mid on-demand playback, the play back stops, and to resume a lot of steps have to betaken and an add is shown. The UI is outdated, and it's hard to navigate the app. This app seems to be created on a cross platform framework, witch it's good to save money. But the developers must pay special care, and attention to detail when delivering the app to all devices it support, so it doesn't look off.
I wish Dish would realize that this app is a gold mine, and that the their competitors have apps that out perform this one.
It is really frustrating to use this app.

The main reason I keep Dish


I’m not going to say this app is perfect, but it works and I use it almost daily. I am a truck driver and have to record a lot of the shows that I want to watch. As long as I have a good signal, I can watch my recordings while on break at night or occasionally catch them on live tv. In a weaker signal, it does freeze up occasionally and I get the “reconnecting to receiver” message a lot. The only thing I’ve found that needs some work, would be the fast forward and rewind buttons. They work most of the time, but are slow and cause the app to freeze up at times. Thanks!

Can’t use HDMI ** Fixed **


I travel a lot and this app was 5 stars for me because I could watch my shows wherever I was. I would hook up my HDMI adapter and hook it to the Hotel TV and it was just like watching my shows at home. Unfortunately, for whatever reason they have decided to disable that functionality. Since my eyesight is poor it just isn’t feasible for me to watch shows on the iPhone. So my rating is now 1 star. Outstanding way to improve your app... NOT!

Received an email from the developer notifying me that they fixed this issue with the latest update. I’m a happy traveler again! Five stars!

This issue should have been resolved with the 7.9.0 update. Try force closing the app, resetting your phone, and then open the app again.
