DISH Network customers currently turn to two different apps when they want to watch TV on their mobile devices. Subscribers will soon need only one app as DISH plans to add the ability to watch Hopper Transfers with the DISH Anywhere app.
At the moment, DISH Anywhere is used for iPhone, iPad, and Android users to view live TV broadcasts when connected to the web. Hopper Transfers works by taking recordings from Hopper and placing them on an iPad so they can be accessed even when the device is offline. DISH will make both of those use cases accessible in one app. Best of all, this move means that Android and iPhone users will gain the ability to have Hopper Transfers.
A product manager for DISH promises to have the revamped Anywhere app ready by the end of the year. There's no word yet on which versions of Android and iOS will be required to run the app.
