A Dish Anywhere app allows you to bring a Dish TV wherever you want and stream live or recorded programs on your mobile device. You don’t need to search for the internet anymore to watch a favorite show. With DISH Anywhere you can do that whenever and wherever you want.

Functionality 5/5

The brightest feature of this app is an offline viewing mode. But it also has few other good ones. In DISH Anywhere you can manually search for TV programs and movies by keywords, titles, genres and actors. It also has a fully integrated electronic programming guide, providing you with the ability to view programming schedules up to seven days in advance.

It also has a huge advantage over other apps because of its "Audio Only" mode. You can do various activities like driving, news reading or interact with other apps and listen to any live or pre-recorded show from your device.

The app offers you a recording function. So you can schedule DVR recordings, manage them, delete shows and create custom recording schedules. You can do all these tasks even if you are away from home.

DISH Anywhere has also a parental control option which is built into the native streaming app for safer viewing. The titles of all content will still be displayed, but their programming is not accessible.

After the latest update, the app integrates easily with Twitter and Facebook so that you can share your viewing experiences with other people.

Design 4.5/5

The latest DISH Anywhere version was improved for iPads and Android tablets. With a re-designed user interface and discovery features, it makes your TV guide always available. When you open up the guide on your mobile device, it shows you a list of channels which will mirror your subscription plan. You can select to browse your list of channels by categories or even set up your favorites. You can also control your TV’s volume and power from the mobile device.

Usability 5/5

DISH has made accessing their ‘Anywhere’ service as simple as possible. To enjoy the full programming features of Dish network, you need to link the app with your Dish online account. The app integrates with the Sling-powered Hopper device and then you’ll be able to watch your favorite shows while on the go.

DISH Anywhere has a bright feature such as creating of personal profiles while watching TV. Every profile contains specific features personalized for each user, including new program recommendations, a recently viewed section and a list of shows and movies you want to watch.

Cross-platform use 4/5

Using a ‘Sling Technology’ provided by the DISH Network, you will be able to watch all your DVR content when you are out and about.

Also, a feature to watch any TV show on the go was previously available only on iPad. But recently DISH expanded their service for iPhones as well as for Android phones and tablets.

In-app purchases

DISH Anywhere offers thousands of TV shows and movies available for free to all. But if you want a full DISH Network subscription, you need to purchase and set up a hopper with a sling which costs additional. Just connect that equipment up to your High-speed internet service which is quite simple to do. Log in to the mobile or online app and input your details. You will be automatically connected to your DISH subscription.


The Dish Anywhere app improves a TV era. Instead of sitting in front of the TV, you can guide, record programs or even watching a live TV show right on your mobile device.

It is highly affordable, and there is no greater pleasure than being able to keep yourself entertained with ‘live TV’ on the go.
