Greatest App Ever!!!
This app in and of itself makes Dish Network THE satellite company to use! I have used this app to watch live TV and my DVR'd shows on my iPads, my Droid phone, and my laptop, all of which work flawlessly as long as there is a good enough internet connection . When I travel to some of my family's houses for vacations I have this app for use as some only have NetFlix and do not have regular television, so it can be and has been a lifesaver.
I have also been surprised at how often I use the app. I thought I would really only use it when on vacation, but I have found that I use it quite a bit. I'll have my iPad open on the counter watching the news while I'm getting ready in the morning as I'm not close enough to the TV to hear it unless I turn it way up and I don't because I get up way before anyone else. I could go on, but I think you get the point, now get the app!
It is relatively simple to set up, so I highly recommend getting the app on all of your devices and setting them up for use. Setting your devices up with access to your primary receiver is the easiest way as they simply give you a pin on your TV screen to enter on your mobile device to pair them and set up the network access (it literally takes less than 5 minutes, I've set up a new iPad in less than a minute). Bottom line is that this is a must have app if you have Dish Network PERIOD.
Update, needs to be fixed
I called a week ago, my dish anywhere app quit working and they told me they knew about the problem and would be fixed in a few days, well one week later and still not working, won't connect to the internet. When is this going to be fixed?
May 9, 2017
Never got a response back that the app had been fixed. Went and did a search and found information. Reset my wifi info and it's back working as of last nite. They need to put out an update or something letting everyone know it has been fixed. Other than this one time not working I love this app. I'm able to watch anything I want on my iPad while my hubby watches news on our big tv.
DISH is definitely 5 stars always when it comes to the Dish Anywhere App. It truly is everything anywhere,take it with you!! Thank you. Direct advertises anywhere but that is NOT TRUE you can only take a few channels with you,no local or some of the other channels either I do agree with the another person that you should reward your longtime subscribers. I have a friend who has been with you all for 20+ years she referred me so how about showing the long timers a little more. Thanks, all in all still would never go back to the other guys!
