NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Responding to growing consumer demand to watch favorite content on
mobile devices, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) is readying an upgrade to its DISH
Anywhere™ app that incorporates Transfers functionality to
both iOS and Android phones and tablets. Using the new DISH Anywhere
app, Hopper™ with Sling® users will soon be able to transfer their
favorite shows for offline viewing to iPhones, iPads and Android phones
and tablets. This enhancement will be pushed as an update to the free
DISH Anywhere app by the end of the year.

the Internet for remote viewing of live TV programs or recorded events
and is available on most Internet-connected devices including iPhones,
iPads and Android phones and tablets.
Hopper Transfers is the second DISH app for remote viewing. It is used
to move recorded programs from a Hopper with Sling to mobile devices for
watching programs when an Internet connection is unavailable. This app
and capability is currently only available for iPads.
TWO MOBILITY APPS BECOME ONE
By the end of the year, both convenient features, Internet viewing and
transfers, will be available within the new DISH Anywhere app and will
work with both iOS and Android mobile devices.
