Revised review


New review:
This app has improved a lot IMHO so I’m revising my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars. There are still a few instances when the picture freezes and sometimes it won’t delete something but I can live with that. For the most part it works great! I wish I could watch it on my MacBook but the new player overheats the processor. I’m not sure if that is the player or my computer and the app on the iPad is easier. Just tap it and there everything is. It’s quite convenient when traveling.

I did find out that Dish Anywhere is part of my subscription to Dish. They very nicely responded and informed me of that, proof that someone actually reads these reviews.

I’m currently using the app almost everyday and have been quite pleased.

Original review: This app is glitchy and doesn't always work. Dialogue gets skipped and the picture freezes. At first I thought it was the wifi I was using but discovered it is with any wifi and it is just a matter of degree--some worse enough to not be watchable and some just glitchy no matter how strong the signal. It's a good concept but kind of frustrating. I wonder how much I'm paying Dish for the privilege of having Dish Anywhere? Whatever it is it's probably not worth it because getting through an entire recorded episode when I'm away from home is a challenge.

Great idea with lots of tweaking needed

A. Grimaldo

This is a great idea to have access to my programming and recordings from anywhere. Nonetheless, I confront issues every single time I use this app. Whether it’s that after hitting the WATCH button I need to restart the app 90% of the time because it froze or showed an error message, or the download function doesn’t work, or the layout changes dramatically with updates and I have to search for stuff I had already learned, or the image jumps 5 or 6 seconds ahead and I have to rewind throughout a recorded show, or... or... or...
I rate this 3star because I like this idea and it is better than not being able to watch my programs, but from time to time, it get so frustrating that I decide to just close the app and wait until I get home -which defeats the purpose of the app altogether.

Up until the release of iOS 11 it worked well.


Up until the release of iOS 11 it worked well.
This app has worked great until the release of iOS 11.
Usually this app is simple and works fantastic. You can use your phone or iPad as a remote to your receiver. You could scroll through the guide just like regular tv. And one of my favorite feature is favoriting channels or shows makes it easy to see what is on. However, as of this review, Dish Anywhere 7.7.3 does not work with iOS 11.2.1. I have tried this on several different devices. Not just mine, and I have tried on many different networks. It simply loads and crashes within seconds.
This has been happening over more than one update on both IOS and Dish Anywhere updates. Really miss using this app.
