Review

The DISH Anywhere app gives you the freedom to enjoy all your favorite TV channels anywhere, at any time, and on your mobile device. You can watch recorded or live content wherever or record your preferred videos from anywhere with DVR features.

Design 5/5

DISH Anywhere is designed to give you a complete and hassle-free viewing experience right on your mobile device. It is clean and crisp in every aspect. The app was built to offer a user-friendly interface to every type of user.

Whether you're searching for content or browsing through the available pieces, the app is impressive on all levels. When watching a recorded piece of content, you get options for rewinding, playing, pausing, fast forwarding, recording, changing the resolution, increasing or decreasing the size, and so much more right at your fingertips.

Content and Features 4/5

When it comes to smart TV experience, DISH Anywhere stands out for all the right reasons. It comes with a complete DVR manager that helps you search for, record, program, and view all your favorite content as and when you choose.

You can even get movies and shows on demand from HBO, Epix, Cinemax, Netflix, and many more. Want to catch the live game while riding the train? It's easy with the DISH Anywhere app and the Hopper 922 Slingshot DVR. If you have the Sling Adapter accessory, you can easily watch live TV from the Hopper, 722k, or the 722 DVR.

The app comes with a user-friendly interface that lets you search and find exactly what you want in seconds. If you're going to record a sports event, show, or live series, you can quickly schedule recordings on your DVR from just about anywhere and with the one-touch recording feature, you will never have to miss your favorite content again.

With the app, you can choose to browse or search for specific content from your DVR, On Demand, or the Program Guide. You can even do searches for up to seven days in advance.

User Experience 3/5

The DISH Anywhere app is quite promising and delivers on a number of different fronts, but it has many flaws as well. It often doesn't work on some various smartphones and tablets. There is also an issue with the app continuously buffering and not playing the chosen content.

Even when the app performs and streams, it is often extremely pixelated. The app also has an issue with it shutting down automatically without an error code.

Watching live TV on the DISH Anywhere app is difficult because it buffers continuously.

Devices 5/5

DISH Anywhere is available for all mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. It is compatible on Android, iOS, and Windows supported devices.

Final Point

For those users looking for a way to record, watch, stream, and find new and interesting content on the go, the DISH Anywhere app is a good choice. It carries a number of features that make it quite a decent tool to have on your device.

The app works best for pre-recorded content which can be transferred instantly from your PC to your mobile device. Live streaming through the app can be difficult and the list of supported devices is rather small. Other than that, the quality and connectivity issues can be solved with regular updates.

All-in-all, the DISH Anywhere app is a useful tool to have as a backup when you're stuck in traffic or on a long flight.
