Dish Network announced they’re the first pay-TV provider to provide an app for watching live television on Android-based tablets. With the app you’ll be able to browse up to 9 days of programming, schedule DVR recordings, manage recordings on multiple receivers, and use the Android tablet as a remote control.
You’ll need a Sling-enabled device and the DISH Remote Access application to make it work. And, a Sling adapter at home paired up with your DISH Network ViP 722 or 722k HD DVR.
Dish apps are already available for watching programming on smartphones, laptops and other platform tablets.
“Now Dish Network customers can enjoy their TV Everywhere experience on tablets like the Galaxy Tab, as well as the dozens of new Android-based tablet devices soon to be introduced,” said DISH Network Chief Marketing Officer Ira Bahr.
You can get the DISH Remote Access app for free at the Android Market.
