Dish has announced that its popular Dish Anywhere app that goes along with the Sling enabled Hopper Whole home DVR has been expanded to support another platform. The app is available on the Amazon Appstore right now and supports the Kindle Fire HDX tablet.
The app was previously available only for iOS and Android devices. The app allows users to watch live TV programs, DVR recordings, and on demand titles on the go. The app will work with WiFi or 3G/4G connectivity.
“After launching the newest version of the pay-TV industry’s only all-in-one app for remote television viewing earlier this year, we have delivered on our promise to extend the app’s availability to Kindle Fire owners,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, Director of Product Management at DISH. “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.”
The user can also use the app to view program guides, set recordings, and mange DVRs on the go from anywhere with an internet connection. Dish also has a new feature called Hopper Transfers that allows recorded content to be transferred from the Hopper to a mobile device for viewing when no web connection is available. The app is ready for download for the Kindle, iOS, and Android devices right now.
