Dish streaming VOD to iPad


Dish Network announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that it has upgraded its Dish Remote Access app for the iPad to add thousands of on-demand streaming movies and TV shows.

Dish customers who subscribe to the Blockbuster @Home package or select premium movie packages, including HBO and Cinemax, can now watch popular movies, TV shows and kid’s programming using the updated Dish Remote Access app on their iPad.

“Dish is known for innovation, variety and value and has raised the bar when it comes to developing innovative ways to watch TV, whether on a big screen TV in your living room or on an iPad at the airport,” said Vivek Khemka, vice president of Product Management, Dish.

Streaming movies and TV shows using the enhanced Dish Remote Access app requires a log-in ID and a broadband-connected iPad. To watch live TV on the iPad, subscribers need a Dish Sling Adapter and a broadband-connected compatible Dish HD DVR receiver.

RBR-TVBR observation: To the consumer, a screen is a screen. They want to be able to watch whatever they want, whenever they want on whichever screen is convenient.
