Watch DISH TV When You’re on Vacation
Just because you’re going on summer vacation or leaving town for a work trip doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the latest episode of your favorite TV show. All you need is the easy-to-use DISH Anywhere app. The app is free for DISH customers and compatible with both iOS and Android devices, the Kindle Fire HD, and most internet browsers. You can also use an Amazon Fire Stick or Fire TV device to access DISH Anywhere.
The best part? You can even watch DISH TV offline. Read on to learn more about watching DISH TV on the go.
Watch Live TV or Your DVR
If you find yourself sitting around your hotel room or lounging by the pool, use the app to watch any show live, just like on your TV. All you have to do is download the app, log in to your DISH account, and search the TV Guide or by a category. As long as you’re connected to the internet, the app syncs with your Hopper at home to give you access to any live TV show.
You can also watch any show on your DVR or search for an on-demand program. Simply tap the DVR or On Demand option in the app.
Watch DISH TV Offline
When you’re not connected to the internet, you still have TV options with the HopperGO. Think of it as a portable DVR or external hard drive; it doesn’t require internet service, mobile data, or take up space on your device, and it fits into the palm of your hand. All you need is an iOS or Android device. There are no monthly fees for the HopperGO–just pay for it once and you’re set.
Before leaving for your trip, connect the HopperGo to your DVR via a USB cable, and transfer any TV shows or movies you want to watch later. With 64GB of space, you can add up to 100 hours of content, which means there’s plenty of space for binge-watching Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, and everything in between.
Once you’ve loaded your HopperGO up with shows and movies, wirelessly connect to your device and everything will be there when you’re ready to relax and watch it.
Watch DISH TV on a Plane, Train, or Automobile
When you have the HopperGO, you can watch your favorite shows anywhere, whether you’re en route to your destination or backcountry camping with no internet service. Up to five mobile devices can wirelessly connect to the HopperGO at one time, which means everyone in the family can watch a movie at the same time. The battery lasts for four hours and is rechargeable, so you won’t have to worry about losing power either.
These days, it’s easier than ever to stay connected, so make sure you take full advantage of your DISH subscription by downloading the DISH Anywhere app for all your portable devices. You’ll never miss your favorite show again!
