Tablet or Pad? Technology adopters on both sides of the fence, whether they embrace the Android Tablet or the Apple iPad, can both stream live and recorded television with the Remote Access App, seeing as the downloadable feature is now compatible with both devices. Now, you're not limited to watching 'TV Everywhere' on your smart phone, you can utilize the larger screen with the Android Tablet to get access to all of your favorite TV programming, including the NFL playoffs and DISHCinema movies. Ira Bahr, the CMO at DISH Network, recently commented on the company's initiative to create a version of the Remote Access app that meets the needs of the Android Tablet user: "DISH Network is the only pay-TV provider to offer a true TV everywhere solution, and now we've optimized that experience for the larger screen size of the Android tablets." Bahr continued with: "Now Dish Network customers can enjoy their TV Everywhere experience on tablets like the Galaxy Tab, as well as the dozens of new Android-based tablet devices soon to be introduced."
