Dish Adds TV Shows to Website18 May, 2011 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Dish Network LLC May 18 said it added TV programming from Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Turner Broadcasting System’s truTV to its subscriber-authenticated website (www.dishonline.com).
The Englewood, Colo.-based satellite TV operator said episodes of “Ben 10: Ultimate Alien,” “Adventure Time” and “Regular Show” on Cartoon Network; “Childrens Hospital,” “Robot Chicken” and “Venture Brothers” on Adult Swim; and “Operation Repo” and “Hardcore Pawn” on truTV, among others, will be available for viewing 24 hours after their initial broadcast.
Dish quietly is joining other multichannel video channel distributors seeking to retain and attract subscribers by repurposing third-party content on proprietary and other distribution platforms, including tablet computers and smartphones.
“Following on the heels of Dish’s launch of HBOGo, we continue to add to the thousands of titles that our customers can watch on-demand, any time and anywhere,” said Dave Shull, SVP of programming. “Dish gives customers the most choices for watching their content, whether online or in the living room in front of the TV.”
