Dish Offer TV Everywhere App

Dish Network launched a "TV Everywhere" service that gives customers access to their subscribed channels on their smartphones, laptops and tablets. The service requires a $99 Sling adapter and a DVR or a DVR with Sling built in. Subscribers also need to download a free Dish remote-access program on to their device. There are no additional monthly service fees to access the content.
