Dish Anywhere app gets even better

Boot Camp feature for Monday, September 8, 2014

Dish Anywhere gets even better.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   When it comes to making it easy for consumers to watch their TV content from anywhere …using smartphones, tablets or computers….it is hard to beat Dish Network’s Hopper with Sling.    And with its updated Dish Anywhere iOS app…the experience is even better.  Senior product manager Julie Turner…

“We made it much more image centric, where we have big thumbnails, it’s easy to navigate, but we’ve also added a lot of new capabilities.  So we’ve added in things that actually enhance the experience for customers.  We’ve added in personalized recommendations, so now you can see content that we think you may like based on programming that you’ve watched at home or on your mobile device previously.”

There’s also a new watch list to remind you about upcoming shows.   Dish Anywhere also lets you record programs…in case you forgot to set the DVR before you left home…and watch those shows from anywhere too.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
