Needs some work 2/5
Does function to make recordings, though one cannot specify the folder to use. Not all show timers are visible in the app, maybe 50% without counting. Sometimes recorded shows are visible, but when opened only some recorded episodes are available to watch, with the others only “on demand.” Sometimes the app shows no recordings or timers or scheduled timers. Skip forward/back takes several seconds.
Wow, let’s get with the times and do some upgrading such as larger or expanding view screen , etc for iPad users.
Dish Anywhere update messed up!! 2/5
Updated the Dish Anywhere per Apple App Store.
NOW…the app will NOT play my DVR recordings. It worked flawlessly before the update. Getting error message that states the following: “ Please check your internet connection. Number: 7002
Receiver model/Status: Hopper3/online
Not displaying DVR recordings 1/5
Recording tab in the DVR function states the hard drive is 75% full with recordings.
Software says “No results found” and does not display a single recording.
Video switched to low quality 4/5
By NFL fan9
Sometimes the video switch to blurry low quality
Streaming to TV broken 1/5
When I stream live programming to my tv using the streamcast/sharing over wifi feature, my phone has to stay on or the programming pauses. When the phone goes to sleep, the streaming pauses. It’s very annoying and makes this feature utterly useless.
Dish has to be the worst provider of any. Our dish hasn’t worked for at least 4 months. And when you call dish, someone comes out whenever they want and try’s to fix the problem and after they leave a week later it goes off again. Service is crappy and dish is crappy also. 1 month left on the 2 years and we are canceling dish for good…..
Devalues the Dish Package 1/5
Very dissatisfied with this app. Truly expected better from Dish. Very wonky and unstable.
New update 1/5
Ever since the most recent update, i spend more time watching the red while a show reloads. It does this numerous times to the point where it’s hard to watch a show. Also, if I’m watching a program it turns off after the show is over. Very disappointed!
Always problems trying to watch programs I dvr’d. Keep getting notices that channel is locked. Channel locked so I can’t view video.
Now it keeps closing saying check internet connection, which is kind of funny since I can watch live programming.
Tired of having to delete then reinstall this. Why can’t it just work like it is supposed to.
It really is false advertising ad it isn’t Dish Anywhere since you can’t watch it anywhere
Repeated crashing issues 3/5
My app keeps crashing and it’s not saving any of my progress in continue watching I have to go back to what I’m at which isn’t fun at all this needs to be fixed I thought the update I did today would fix it but it didn’t fix it and it’s crashing more if this gets fixed I won’t have any issues what so ever
Tried to use while traveling 1/5
Just keep running into an error message when trying to login. Perhaps they should change the name of the app to DishSomewhere!
Terrible app 1/5
The app continually crashes and the buffering is absolutely ridiculous. I have good internet and this is the only app I have this problem with. It took me 2 hours to watch a 1 hour show even with fast forwarding through advertisements because of the buffering every 20-30 seconds.
Channels not showing on guide 1/5
It appears an update happened. Every single Latin channel is in here and you can’t find local channels. Can’t find the NFL game live on Fox. What did u do!?
By Bill the zombie guy
The update to this app made it absolute garbage. Doesn’t work half the time and constantly buffers. Go back to the old, more simplified version. It was much better.
Love FB 5/5
By Coach Rowe
Great to be able to watch college football anywhere!
Doesn’t work on Smart tvs 2/5
I use the Dish app to cast onto my Samsung Smart TV and it keeps freezing. Not very useful. Wish they would let one put the Dish app onto the tv itself instead of having to use phone.
Seems that Dish had a signal problem, constantly buffering, picture freezes, or, I’m always getting a message that my internet is down when I’m 1000 miles from home! Of course then I can’t check to see if that’s true. So that’s the reason for only 3 stars.
This app is absolute garbage. Playback from DVR freezes all the time. Says I’m not connected to internet, but when I switch to any other streaming app they work just fine and do not freeze. I’m just thankful that my two year contract is up soon so I can just drop Dish all together.
Where are my DVR recordings? 1/5
Shows NOTHING on DVR when on Dish Anywhere app!
By rapper girl city slicker
Is the best show on beside step up 3 , all shows w Tyler Perrybare the bump!!!!!
App worked pretty good until last update 1/5
The app will no longer let me stream/cast to my smart TV. I’ve tried everything to try and fix it and it will not work. Noticed a review of someone else having the same issue recently
Might not be great for on the go. 1/5
By Ry alexander
Seems to work on my computer but I seen it skip on my phone. This may be a problem for my computer as well.
Love it 5/5
Im sitting in a hotel in New Zealand watching dish network live and any and all of my dvr recordings
Worst App Ever!! 1/5
By gone dish
Glitchiest and worst app ever! Exactly what you would expect from Dish!
If you don’t get Root Sports NW back I am going to file a civil suit.
Easy use 5/5
Works well. Can kind of scan over commercials. Just takes patience.
We updated our app. Can’t do a thing. Constantly cutting off. Reload all the time.
MAJOR buffering issues with current "upgrade" 1/5
Streaming & major buffering issues when attempting to watch anything recorded on the Hopper using Amazon Fire Stick. Literally the wonderful spinning arrow pops up every couple of minutes!!
How about addressing this common problem...
Doesn’t work with Chromecast/Airplay 1/5
Whenever I want to stream to my tv using Chromecast or Airplay method, it keeps cutting out after 1-2 minutes and is never stable. All other streaming apps that I use have no problems and maintain a stable connection (even Paramount+ live streams). This app can’t stream any channel and I’ve given up trying to use it to stream to my other TV.
Bad move 3/5
This app is continually downgraded. The most recent disaster is they removed the channel numbers from the guide. Really stupid move
App is TERRIBLE on smart tv 2/5
When watching tv away from home on a smart tv it’s always constant buffering and poor picture. Its great on computer or the phone but I never have a need for that. This app is part of what I pay for. I am not satisfied with this poor quality.PLEASE FIX THE APP FOR SMART TVs
Not so good 1/5
Since the update the app is nearly unwatchable! Old version was much better.
Crappy App 1/5
This is the worst streaming app out. Constantly has to buffer. None of my other apps ever have to buffer.
Had a long time! 5/5
By An Oldie Goldie
The only way to enjoy Dish is to also have ability to stream on any platform…..
Here is why i love dish 5/5
So I love dish because it’s your own little TV and you can watch movies that you like and there’s more of the kid shows that kids persuade their adults to watch them and it’s a kid appropriate show and I hope everybody likes it I don’t care what the haters say it’s OK if you have a different opinion but I still love it I’m pretty still new to it because I download it a few weeks ago. Everybody in the whole world I hope you love it it’s the best thing in the whole wide world on social media and on the environment so have a great day this is what I mean I love it so much so have a great day may God bless you.
Buffers a lot 3/5
Hard to watch live tv.. especially sports. Buffer rate is bad.
Won’t connect worth 2 cents to your Hopper DVR. 1/5
By sgt maj lahma
Whenever I try to watch shows I recorded on my Hopper DVR, it buffers nonstop. My Hopper is hardwired to my internet with a 500+ megabit per second network connection. Every other streaming app I run, Netflix, Hulu, Paramount +, HBO max, etc all have no issues with buffering EXCEPT for Dish Anywhere. When will you guys fix this bottleneck bug. Watching live shows I have no problems but the DVR connection is a failure.
Cant even watch a live game or show without 5 seconds of freezing/buffering for every 20 seconds of runtime.
Dish app 1/5
And i keep getting playback error!!!
This app is absolutely horrible. It’s like watch the feed from the 90s it’s so blurry it’s nearly unwatchable. This app suckssssssss!!!!!!!!
Won’t let me watch Disney chancels or free form 1/5
EVERY TIME I TRY TO WATCH THE SHOWS DISNEY OR FREEFORM HAS ON I CAN’T GET TO IT. ITS LIKE THE THE DISAGREEMENT THEY HAD AGAIN ONLY IT IS ON THE APP!
Dish Anywhere App 3/5
When this app is actually functioning it is tremendous, currently not being able to simulcast it to my tv makes this app all but unusable. Will bot be using the app until it is corrected, just hoping it doesn’t turn into a long term problem. Easy 5 stars no problem when the app is working normal!
Terrible since upgrade 2/5
Issues across the board - long time user thinking about getting rid of it
The previous version wasn’t perfect, but was tolerable. This latest update takes longer to watch a replay than if I took the time to watch it live (completely taking away the rewind and forward capabilities). Just bring back the last version.
Works 50% of time 3/5
When it works, it is okay. Unfortunately it doesn’t work ½ the time. Constantly deleting app and reinstalling. Looking for new tv provider when contract expires….
Won’t Post My Review 1/5
The new upgrade is the worst. Wrote a huge review and it won’t post?????
What’s the purpose? 1/5
By Jesus pep
Why any I paying for dish. When the app doesn’t allow you to watch anything because, the watch/play is cut off at the bottom of my phone or tablet screen. It’s been like this for a while. Anytime soon your going to fix it??
Won’t work 1/5
Literally won’t play anything.
