Like Being able to download to iPad

For what I use it for the app does a good job, downloading recorded shows directly to my iPad so I can watch when I do not have a connection. However, that also is the one negative comment I have. Whenever I am watching something offline I keep getting a message that Dish Anywhere cannot detect an internet connection. At times I can’t get the message to go away and it is right in the middle of the show I am watching. I am aware I don’t have an internet connection, that’s why I downloaded the shows to my iPad. Please get rid of this message as it is annoying and distracting. Thank you.

Bring back functional app

Way back when I switched to dish I loved this app. Now it works for around a minute before I get an error message: no internet connection. Which is frustrating because: 1. I have an internet connection since other stuff on iPad connects; 2. This happens across several iPads I own; and, 3. I can watch live tv on my app while it says I don’t have an internet connection.

Two stars because it used to work great. I was going to go 3 stars, but after the update there was no improvement.

I hope this gets resolved soon. Thank you.

Update: I appreciate the developer response about the need for a strong (i.e. fast) connection, suggesting a speed of 4 MBs is necessary for HD. I neglected to mention I’m running at 39MBs.

I’m at a loss why I would want to waste time chatting about this problem. It worked across all devices. The app was updated and now it is giving me a false error message across all devices. And, yes, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and turned off and on. Time to fix it on the developer side.

Updated: still not fixed?????

UPDATE: November 1: updated the app just now and I still cannot get the sports portion of the app to work. Since this has been an issue for more than 9 months, just when might you get around to fixing it?

I called March 10 to find out why my sports portion of the app isn't working. It is now almost June and I call every week to check the status and get the same is a known problem with our new guide source and it should be fixed in the next three days....really? I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why sports does not show up on my iPhone or iPad app. I have removed and re-downloaded...nothing. Ridiculous

UPDATE: it is almost July and the sports portion of the app is still not working. Any idea when this will be fixed?

AUGUST 17 UPDATE: updated the app per your response and every time I open the app and click on sports it say, error download the latest app. Now what is your excuse?
