Customer Reviews

Very good app

I have had Dish for several weeks and have used the app almost daily. I can report that I am very pleased. It is easy to schedule and it is easy to watch live or recordings. So far, I have no complaint. They have done an excellent job.

Love Dish Explorer!

Such a great tool for the iPad. Just setup the access for the Joey off the Hopper with Sling. Quick, easy and working fine. Also transferred a TV show to complete the test of the app. Thanks Dish Network!

Works well but want an iPhone app

This is a great app, please make a universal or iPhone version....I use my iPhone for som many more remote features.
