Can I download videos from DISH Anywhere?

DISH Anywhere currently does not support video downloads to your home computer or PC.

Why are some episodes of shows not available?

Due to certain licensing rules, DISH Anywhere is unable to provide access to all episodes of every program. If you can’t find the show or episode you want, the licensing may have expired, or it’s possible it has yet to be released on the website.

Can I view DISH Anywhere content on my mobile phone or tablet?

Unfortunately, DISHanywhere.com is not optimized for mobile devices. However, if you download the DISH Anywhere app for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Kindle Fire HD these devices support live TV and DVR viewing for a Sling-enabled DVR. If you don’t have a Sling-enabled DVR, you can still watch On Demand content and browse through the program guide, as well as schedule your DVR recordings and manage your DVR library.
