DISH Network on iPhone
Mobile Satellite Television Now Available on Apple’s iPhone
DISH Network subscribers interested in watching their favorite live or recorded television programs on their mobile device will be able to enjoy the convenience of on-the-go media and entertainment as DISH’s new mobile streaming television service has arrived on the iPhone. DISH subscribers can now watch their favorite live or recorded television shows, movies, and sporting events wherever they go. DISH Network’s new mobile television streaming service is available with no additional cost to subscribers, allowing iPhone users unlimited access to all their favorite channels. The free upgraded DISH Network on iPhone app enables DVR receiver functionalities found on DISH Remote Access including utilizing a subscriber’s television subscription, programming digital video recorders, browsing scheduled television lineups, managing DVR disk space, schedule recordings, and accessing specific features found on the remote control.
For DISH subscribers and iPhone users, the free mobile streaming television service will require some leverage from necessary hardware. Sling Media’s Slingbox is a placeshifting device that allows a mobile device to stream remotely from television sets, digital video recorders, and other video sources using an internet connection or cellular data network. DISH subscribers interested in using the new mobile streaming television service will have a few options to implement the service. Subscribers with a current DISH DVR can simply request an upgrade of their current DVR receivers to the latest DVR model with built-in Slingbox technology. Owners of the newer DISH ViP 922 SlingLoaded DVRs will not need any further upgrades to enjoy online video streaming content on their iPhones. Sling Media also offers the Slingbox device that connects to compatible DISH DVRs and enables mobile users to stream live television from their DVR receivers anywhere.
The free DISH Network for iPhone app is available from iTunes App store here. The iPhone app allows customers to log onto DISH Remote Access without having to visit the mobile web address. Before using the app, customers will need to register for an online customer account at www.DISHnetwork.com.
