Compare DirecTV App vs. Dish Anywhere
DISH Anywhere and the DIRECTV App: Same idea, different benefits.
Why is DISH Anywhere Better?
With revolutionary technology, the Hopper is made to go where you go.
The magic of DISH Anywhere is the award-winning Hopper technology combined with Sling. The DISH HOPPER 3™, which CNET calls “the most powerful and feature-packed DVR to date,” comes with built-in Sling technology. Sling technology makes it easy to transfer things like live TV shows and DVR recordings to other devices, like smartphones and tablets.
With a DISH subscription, the DISH Anywhere app, plus a HOPPER 3 with Sling technology connected to your home WiFi network, you can watch what you want as if you were at home on the couch. That means streaming live TV while taking transit to work or waiting in the checkout line.
The best part? When you transfer content from your HOPPER 3 with Sling technology to other devices, you can still watch even if you don’t have an Internet connection. So when you board your flight, you and your family can keep watching movies and TV shows.
