This app is great because I can watch tv wherever I go. However, even at my home where I have 50Mbits/sec download speeds, Dish anywhere still only averages around 500kb/sec stream speeds. The peak speed I've seen so far was 1.3Mbits/sec. This is an issue because you can rarely watch anything in an acceptable quality. I feel like this issue could be fixed if they allowed the user to buffer the content to catch up instead of constantly trying to bring an "up to the second" live stream. Either way, I will still continue to use this app as it is the ONLY option for watching on the go, but it would be nice for Dish to recognize that updating this feature to stream HD content would push them ahead of the pack for the future of television viewing. Hopefully they read these reviews👍
I finally convinced my husband to get rid of cable. Dish is fabulous and with dish anywhere the options are unbelievable. It works great. It is fast. I like recording my shows to the hopper from dish anywhere. I am very pleased with the system and highly recommend it. I use it everyday. I have not had any issues with this app before or after the update. It works perfectly. In fact, I really like the latest update. The graphics are great.
Crashes after Update!!! :(
After my iPhone 6+ automatically updated to the most recent version of this app it now crashes!!! I completely and totally hate this because it was working just fine for me before and now it is useless and I can't use it at all!!! Not anywhere! It is completely making me regret getting Dish service because problems like this keep happening! It is turning out to be a huge disappointment! If I could rate this no stars I would but I am forced to give at least a 1 star rating so I must do that reluctantly! If things change and I find I am happier I will change my rating and review! But as for right now it is as low as it goes!
