Using the new DISH Anywhere app, Hopper™ with Sling® users will soon be able to transfer their favorite shows for offline viewing to iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets. This enhancement will be pushed as an update to the free DISH Anywhere app by the end of the year.
Currently, DISH offers two different apps for remote viewing, DISH Anywhere and Hopper Transfers. DISH Anywhere is used when connected to the Internet for remote viewing of live TV programs or recorded events and is available on most Internet-connected devices including iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets. Hopper Transfers is the second DISH app for remote viewing. It is used to move recorded programs from a Hopper with Sling to mobile devices for watching programs when an Internet connection is unavailable. This app and capability is currently only available for iPads.
By the end of the year, both convenient features (Internet viewing and transfers) will be available within the new DISH Anywhere app and will work with both iOS and Android mobile devices.
