‘Dish Anywhere’ app is now readily available for download especially on the Kindle Fire HDX. This was announced today by the Dish Network. This means that owners of the tablet could now enjoy specific services even while on the go.
This also means that owners of the HDX device especially those with Sling-equipped DVR like the Dish Hopper, could now watch TV live. They could also enjoy the use of DVR recordings as well as a library of on-demand titles (‘thousands’ of those).
The users of the device would also check out program guides, manage DVR, and set recordings. They could possibly transfer DVR recordings to their HDX tablets. Viewing of downloaded content could be possible even when the tablet is not connected to the online media.
Dedication to mobile expansion
In a statement, director of product management at Dish Jimshade Chaudhari said bringing the app to a new group of tablet owners indicate the company’s dedication to the expansion of the mobile market. He added that this move would allow its customers to watch just about anything wherever they are and whatever mobile device they could be using.
The Dish Anywhere app is currently available for instant downloading for free through the Amazon Appstore. It is also available through Google Play and Apple Inc’s iTunes Store. The app was previously available only on Android and iOS devices. Now, it is also available to users of Amazon’s cheaper slates like the Kindle Fire HD.
More about Dish and Kindle
Meanwhile, the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX is described as the ‘easiest tablet.’ Its Mayday remote video support capability is revolutionary as it provides unlimited and personalized video support for consumers’ various tablet needs. For a price tag of just $229, the device could easily be anyone’s first ever tablet. The HDX is practically wider compared to Google Nexus 7, which is cheaper priced in the market at just $175. But its features would never get left behind.
On another related news, Dish announced last week a new feature of its Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR. It said the users of the device could not possibly control the power and volume of their TV sets using just their iPad.
Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR users could also enjoy second-screen viewing experience. The service also now comes with more personalized recommendations that are practically based on users’ viewing habits.
