8:20am: The app opened to the networks & I was watching a show (Van Helsing). At the end of the episode all of the rest of the episodes that were available disappeared. The app is partially up, then down. Then back up again. But the shows are still not available right now. Obviously something hokey is going on & it needs attention. I looked for a place on the dish website to send dish a message about the problem, but either they don't want to hear from a customer or their email/messaging is too deeply imbedded in the disorganization they call a website.
8:41am: The episodes have come back for now.
Every time I use this app to watch a program or movie, it starts the movie and plays for a few minutes then jumps to the end credits and says the movie is over. I have tried and tried to watch, hoping it will finally play all the way through, but it keeps happening every time I attempt to watch. I hope Dish will fix it soon. I had stopped watching on the app because previously I couldn't get any of the selections to play at all. Looks like I traded one problem for another. It just doesn't work.
This app is horrible it glitches and repeats things all the time and I have good internet so it's defiantly the app. I don't see how there can be one good review on this app they must be paid to write good reviews. I've been a dish member for along time and I recently upgraded to the hopper to do dish anywhere and I shouldn't of done it it's not worth it I can't even enjoy one channel without it it skipping around and repeating things over and over. My advice to anyone wanting to switch to dish for dish anywhere or upgrade your cable box to do dish anywhere DON'T DO IT!! It's not worth it until they fix the problem. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR DISH TO BE OFFERING A APP THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ENJOY WITH ALL THE GLITCHING AND REPEATING. SO ALL I CAN SAY TO DISH IS PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM.
I went to visit my daughter in Savannah, and it would play like five seconds of a show then skip back, repeat half of it, go another five seconds, skip back, repeat. Impossible to watch anything. And no, it wasn't the Internet. I was the only one up, and using it, nothing else was running off of it. I did a speed test and their internet was running at 5.3, fast enough to watch a show. I even uninstalled the app and re-installed it. Same thing. Not a happy camper right now. Very disappointed in dish.
