Not as good as it used to be
When I first started using Dish Anywhere 3+ yrs ago, it was pretty awesome. Several updates later, not so much. MY main problem, (and I have sent issue to customer service, (no reply), when pausing a show, it won't start again with the play button. I have to leave it paused, rewind the 10 secs & 95% of the time it will play the first time. It's playing with the pause button highlighted. Don't know about live tv, don't watch much live on here. But other than that, all seems to be pretty ok. Amended, Nov 2016, since this, I've gotten the Hopper 3, it doesn't work work a crap with it and cannot get any straight-forward help from Dish regarding the issue. Just get rid of it if you have the Hopper 3 & you'll just have to wait til you get home or watch online and use up your data. Maybe they'll reimburse ya for it, ha ha ha.....
Works great with a bit of a learning curve. Sometimes I've got to steer it around a little. I'm used to it now. I just go through the steps in the order it prefers. It's kind of old school, but it does work. And I get the desired results. Each time. For me it's simple. Select guide. Select program from guide. Allow it to request desired action ( watch. record. more.) select "watch" allow it to suggest "watch on iPad" or "watch on TV" select "watch on iPad". If I shortcut I've usually got problems. If I do the above I usually get the desired results. For me this is Perfect. If it's not working, well -No So Perfect. Thanks.

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.
