Responding to growing consumer demand to watch favorite content on mobile devices, DISH is readying an upgrade to its DISH Anywhere app that incorporates Transfers functionality to both iOS and Android phones and tablets. Using the new DISH Anywhere app, Hopper with Sling users will soon be able to transfer their favorite shows for offline viewing to iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets. This enhancement will be pushed as an update to the free DISH Anywhere app by the end of the year.

Currently, DISH offers two different apps for remote viewing, DISH Anywhere and Hopper Transfers. DISH Anywhere is used when connected to the Internet for remote viewing of live TV programs or recorded events and is available on most Internet-connected devices including iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets.

Hopper Transfers is the second DISH app for remote viewing. It is used to move recorded programs from a Hopper with Sling to mobile devices for watching programs when an Internet connection is unavailable. This app and capability is currently only available for iPads.

TWO MOBILITY APPS BECOME ONE

By the end of the year, both convenient features, Internet viewing and transfers, will be available within the new DISH Anywhere app and will work with both iOS and Android mobile devices.

“Responding to subscribers who want an even easier way to fully utilize the capabilities of the Hopper with Sling, today, we’re announcing an overhaul of the DISH Anywhere app,” said Vivek Khemka, senior vice president, product management at DISH. “By year’s end, Hopper with Sling users will be able to remotely watch live and recorded shows and transfer recorded programs to their iOS and Android devices, all within the new DISH Anywhere app.”
