The US DTH provider DISH Network has introduced TV Everywhere, enabling consumers to watch TV anytime and anywhere using Sling Media technology.
“DISH Network is proud to introduce the first and only comprehensive solution for consumers to pay once for content and then remain connected to their TV everywhere,” said Ira Bahr, chief marketing officer for DISH Network, in a statement. “DISH Network customers will be able to enjoy their favorite live and recorded shows throughout their home and on the go, using the same program guide, menu and navigation they are familiar with on their home TV.”
The TV Everywhere service provides customers with access to all their live and recorded programming on a laptop, mobile device, or anywhere in the home wirelessly. Key components of TV Everywhere include the TV Everywhere Adapter; the ViP 922 1 TB PVR with built-in Slingbox capabilities; the new DISH Network WiFi HD Monitor; and the newly-released DISH Remote Access App.
The Remote Access App is now available for free for both the iPhone and iPod Touch and can be downloaded from the App Store. The operator expects to launch the TV Everywhere Adapter, the ViP 922 and the WiFi Monitor in the second quarter of 2010. Live demonstrations of all TV Everywhere products are being held at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
