Ratings and Reviews
Dish nowhere, without an internet connection.
I wish there was a way to fix the time zone on the dish app tv guide. It currently says it’s four pm. It is 7am. Also, the app is constantly not connecting to my receiver. I reset the receiver over and over, but I normally have to do that at least every other time I use it. Even when i can get it to connect, it also crashes and automatically closes all the time. I use this to download shows to watch during 12 hour shifts too and it’s always (more than once every 30 days sometimes more than once a day) prompting me to get on an internet connection to sign in. Would i go through the trouble of downloading, if I had easy access to an internet connection? No. I saw one other poor review for this same issue. It is not operator error. It’s the app. On top of all of that I always click save log on info on the sign in page and I always have to enter everything all over. For whatever reason it doesnt sync with my Ipad’s autofill. This is the only app I have this issue with. I use multiple devices, multiple network connections (all strong, so don't waste your time auto replying me to strengthen my network speed)and they all have the same issues. Very glitchy frustrating app. Also, every time I try to delete a saved primetime anytime show they won’t delete. If it worked more often than not, I’d really appreciate it.
If you haven't already, try updating the app. Our most recent updated addresses some bugs and crashing issues. Feel free to update it as soon as possible. Let us know if the issue continues or contact us at www.mydish.com/support/contact or by visiting us on Facebook/Twitter to receive further assistance with your issues.
App will no longer even open on any of my iPads
8/5/18: Rock bottom. No apps on my iDevices will even open now.
When I lived in the city, I subscribed to Comcast cable. And , while they are the worst company on the planet, I have to admit that the one thing they did do well was their app. So, I got spoiled. Now that I'm retired and living in a rural area, DISH is my choice. Their service is great, but their app - not so much. I have DSL with 12 Mbps down, so there's ample bandwidth. Whenever I choose to "transfer" a recording to my device, most of the time it fails and I have to shut the app down and re-open to make the transfer. Then, while playing the transferred show, many times it just hangs up and stops, requiring me to shutdown and restart the app in order to continue watching. And there's no "resume" feature, so I have to search for where I left off watching. Also, the app doesn't always recognize that there is an Internet connection. Just lots of little annoyances that add up to an unpleasant experience overall.
Hello CathieLB. If you're experiencing the issue where the app will not load past the initial loading screen, we apologize for the inconvenience. We're working on hard on getting that resolved and we will push out an update as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience while we continue to investigate the issue. Thank you!
UPDATE 2: Good app, PIP coming in Q2
Update 2: Dish says that Picture in Picture is coming in Q2!! This will make this app perfect and make me a long-time Dish customer!
This app continues to get better, and I’m impressed with how quickly Dish responds to fixing bugs. However, like I mentioned in my original review, what is holding this app back from being a great app is support for Picture in Picture. At this point, I’m guessing that Dish is just not going to support this feature, but it sure would be nice to know that for sure. If you aren’t going to do PIP, can you just let us all know?
This is a really good app that when you have a hopper with sling allows you to watch TV anywhere. There is one bug where the audio will play but the video will not. The quick workaround is to quit the app and restart. This has worked every time for me. The other thing is that the app needs picture in picture support. I can't emphasize that enough. I use PIP all the time and the Dish app is one of the only video apps I use that has not implemented PIP support yet. That really seems like a big miss on Dish's part. Fix the bug and implement PIP and this would be a 5 star app.
PiP is scheduled to come out in Q2 this year.
