DISH Network has announced that the DISH Remote Access — a free application that gives DISH Network customers the ability to watch their live and recorded TV on compatible smartphones, tablets and laptops — is now available for the iPad.
To enjoy live and recorded TV viewing on the iPad, DISH Network customers must have a broadband-connected, Sling-enabled device such as the Sling Adapter — a small placeshifting device that pairs with DISH Network’s ViP 722 or 722k HD DVRs.
“DISH Network is the only pay-TV provider to offer a true TV everywhere solution, and now we’ve extended that experience to the iPad,” says DISH Network Chief Marketing Officer Ira Bahr. “Unlike mobile viewing from cable and telcos that limit access to select programs, our TV Everywhere services give consumers 24 x 7 access to all of their live and recorded content included with their DISH Network programming subscription.”
In addition to TV viewing, the DISH Remote Access app also gives DISH Network customers with compatible DVRs the ability to browse and search up to nine days of programming, schedule DVR recordings, manage conflicts, delete shows on multiple receivers, and transform the iPad into a fully-functioning remote control.
The DISH Remote Access app for the iPad can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store. For more information about DISH Remote Access, go to http://www.dish.com/tveverywhere .
