Dish VOD Link Comes to Amazon Kindle Tablets5 Mar, 2014 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Dish Networks March 5 announced its Dish Anywhere app, which allows subscribers to watch live and recorded programming on connected and non-connected devices, is now available on Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX tablet. The app was previously available only on Android and iOS devices.
The satellite TV operator continues to push technology trends as a means of attracting and retaining bundled channel subscribers in an era of subscription streaming.
Through the Dish Anywhere app, Hopper with Sling DVR owners can view live, recorded and VOD content at home or remotely from their smartphones and tablets when connected to either Wi-Fi or a 3G/4G connection.
Additionally, the app gives users the ability to view program guides, set recordings and manage their DVRs. The app also allows users to transfer recorded content from the Hopper to their mobile devices when an Internet connection is not available.
"By offering Dish Anywhere to this new group of tablet owners, we continue to show that we are dedicated to the expanding mobile market by allowing our customers to watch everything, anywhere no matter what mobile device they are using,” Jimshade Chaudhari, director of product management at Dish, said in a statement.
