    The app used to work really well, but about a year ago they changed it and with every update it gets worse. Forget offline viewing. That no longer works. It loses its "certificate" and won't play your transfered recordings. When watching recordings it spends most time buffering. You can no longer advance the recordings past commercials. Like I said, it worker perfectly about a year ago. I'm ready to switch to another company completely. This service is partly what I'm paying for and it's useless

    app This app is literally the worst app. Everything mentioned below is true. Cannot watch live TV on the app like advertised. And no it's not my slow internet. I have 4g lte and high speed WiFi. Neither worked. Loaded every 5 seconds and was blurry. For as much as we pay for dish you'd think they'd actually do what they advertise. This is sad and like always, nothing will be done about it. Below average product by a below average company.

    /activate Even this latest updates, no CC!!! Before you mess this app up, closed captioning is set up through the setting. Now I have to set CC on each channels? That's friggin outrageous! It seem you don't give a hoot in how we, deaf customers, feel. I kept messing around to get CC working. One channel work and other don't work. I tested from TV to device. This app still suck! Test this app before you upload for upgrade. Sheesh... Get it fix or I'll file suit through ADA laws.

    roku Update... The app still sucks balls. You can't watch anything on your DVR or from the guide. Been 5 months and they still can't get it right. What a waste. The new update sucks bad. You can't watch anything without it buffering all the time. You can't hit record in anything you're watching or even record from the guide. The old app worked great but just like dish does everything else they made it useless. Don't waste your time til they fix it.

    app not working Horrible. Every update gets worse. It takes at least three or four hours to watch an hour show. Buffers about every five minutes and then finally locks up. I have to restart my device to get back to the dvr. As big a company dish is and as much as we pay monthly you would think dish could provide a decent app. I also have to uninstall/reinstall at least once a day. The only reason I gave a one star is because there are no minus stars.

I have been using the app with no problems for about a week. I just received another update and downloaded it and guess what lt stopped working again. I am very upset now will you please stop with these update that do not work. If you get it back working again please stop with the updates that don't work.

I would like to watch my DVR while I am running around doing homework and I can't get it to work after i press the show I am wanting to watch. Doesn't do a damn thing once it's supposed to stream. Please fix this so I can watch my DVR and not have to make my 15 month old daughter have to get of my main TV to watch my shows. She likes her baby first Station with all her favorite characters.

    The most recent update to this app his horrible, the buttons to fast forward or rewind are tiny and have to hit them just right, load times once you FF 30 sec is super long and half the time when I click on a show to watch in the DVR or Prime Time Anytime it plays something different but works fine through the receiver on my tv. Please bring back the old version of the app or fix this one.

    Horrible app now. Used to work ok but new version cannot "log in" without an internet connection. Hard to do on a plane or traveling in a car. This version also has repeated "license needs to be updated" issues which also require that you are connected to the internet. This is unusable. The older version worked much better. Dish Network should be able to make an app that works.

    Please make the app the app the way it used to be. This new format is terrible. Everything lags, the skip forward and back are too close together and too small. It freezes up quite often. Always tells me I have someone else watching remotely and asks me if I want to take over video. I can check my tuners and no one is viewing remotely. Go back to the way the app used to be before this last major change. This is so frustrating, along with several other things, considering dropping dish.

To go back 10 seconds takes 12 or more unlike the Fire tablet there's no option to restart from left off of TV or tablet. It's just not usable at all I'm going back to my Amazon Fire tablet. After giving it the best environment being next to the router and having hit the factory reset it is very sluggish and just incredibly frustrating.

    It was nice and easy a few months back. Then came 'improvements'....and now its a nightmare. FF or rewind goes intk a freeze or black screen. You have to shut the app because nothing works after that. Very very annoying. I have more than 300 recordings of a particular show. I cannot open it....it freezes. I have to go through transfers which takes a lot of time. Once i have watched, i cannot go back to recordingd to delete them what a pain. I gave 1 star but it is zero.

    Does not have a direct link to chromecast you have to mirror your screen on android and after every use you have to remove the app reinstall it and login otherwise the video will show on your device but not on the mirror, only a black screen, I can help them resolve the issue but they are not willing to allow me to help.

    The Guide is not correct with some of the things I watch. Also I don't know how to get the quality better. I'm getting SD instead of HD. In my opinion Spectrum's app is way better. But I have both and most people don't. Also it asked me if I wanted to rate the app 5 stars. Nice way to assume something Dish and that's why you get a 1 instead of a 3.

    The app rarely works. I cannot fast forward or exit a program unless I close the app completely. I have to watch all commercials of my favorite recordings. The more I have recorded the more difficult it is to view the shows. I cannot pause the program I am watching otherwise it will stop working or skip forward and miss parts of the television shows I recorded. The app on the Android devices do not work. I might be able to watch one show, if I want to go to something else I have to exit the app.

    I would have giving them a ZERO rating if I could. You get a ZERO! 1) You can't pause this app, at least not for a long period. 2) The app losses connection all the time, even if I have full Wi-Fi signal 3) Who design a button for skipping next to a recording button? Mind you that these buttons are small 4) After every update I have to go renter my credentials.

I think imma just delete the app........Latest update as of 6.1.20 That update is wacc because you can no longer be watching a channel and then go to the guide without having to stop what your watching.. outside of that update is good.. but that's a MAJOR FACTOR.. now you can't even have the option of choosing " play on device or play on tv"

Navigation = a "bit" to-be-desired: I can't search for a channel ...when I don't know the number ..search results just give shows or episodes. ex: I wanted to hear what Fox News was saying about the first Presidential Debate... But I couldn't even find the Fox news channel...because when I tried skimming.. didn't allow past 131

    Videos load fine, and there aren't many bugs that I can see, but the app is LITTERED with ads. I was trying to watch Airplane Repo, and after about 30 minutes there have been 3 ad breaks, with like 4 ads each, and then when it got near the end, it gave me an ad break with 8 LONG ADS, THEN IT LET ME WATCH ABOUT 30 SECONDS, THEN ANOTHER AD BREAK WITH 7 LONG ADS!

    App crashes when selecting a program to record from sports menu. When streaming from dvr audio & video are often non synchronous (by 10-20 seconds or more). App freezes when streaming Previous versions worked much better. The skip forward & back icons are so close the "x" (close) icon that you inadvertently close the app when trying to skip forward or back. Previous versions had these controls on the bottom.

I have to purchase movies or TV shows that I have with my satellite package, this app is horrible, trying to get more$$$ out of you, that's unnecessary, I shouldn't have to pay anything when I can watch on my TV, and another thing why is the guide behind schedule whatever time it is it should automatically be on that time.

    Third update installed since I told you about the problems created by April update. Still no way to choose which receiver or joey. No way to choose whether to watch or set or device. You obviously dont care. If your programmers did what I use to do they would have kept the original code. And when told of the problem reverted back to the original code. You should do both alpha and beta test with users .please fix issues

    Disappointed. Upgraded which was a mistake. New app crashes all the time. Have to close and restart the application 5- 10 times during a 1 hour show. So.erimes it freezes the phone and I have to hard reboot the phone.

    Dish is screwing its loyal subscribers again. Now I have to have a hopper to use Dish Anywhere. I've been using my 722 receiver for years with the Sling adapter that Dish MADE ME BUY to watch my programming on the go. Now Dish has turned off the ability to do that with the receiver I have. It says I have to upgrade to the hopper which just so happens would raise my monthly DVR fee from $7 to $15 a month. No gonna happen for me. Looks like Dish would take care of their loyal subscribers.

When are you going to fix it? It continues loading when I do hit the 30 second skip and I have to close out of it. Watching my recordings were great until you decided to ruin this app. Now I have recordings but the screen is blank when I go to them! What the heck happened!

    Worst app ever. It says Improvement but it is so unfriendly to utilize. For instance when you try to fast-forward through the commercials, or when you rewind. It takes forever to load so you might as well just watch the commercials. VERY disappointed. I mean we DVR things so we don't have to watch commercials and we can fast-forward through them but with this app it's just easier to watch them. -1 rate. The last app needed improvements but come on... I would rather have the old one back.

Its just embarrassing! I'd rather go to straight streaming services, at least they have their servers and app issues under control.

Any time you try to fast forward the the commercials it stops working, just says Loading, and you have to restart the app. Then it does the same thing. I tried to uninstall then reinstall, still doesn't work. Very disappointed and never get to watch my shows I DVR'd.

Forget trying to rewind using the 10 second back arrow - better not miss a single word! C'mon! For the money that we pay for our cable access, you'd think you could make this app work better.

Something is always wrong with this app. I call customer service and they say uninstall it and reinstall, which works sometimes but who wants to keep having to do that every time they open the app?!

Orig: I am a long time user of the Dish Anywhere App and I've got to say the new app is a piece of crapola, it needs a lot of tweaking. I opened the new App and thought 'oh how nice, it looks awesome' but then I tried to use it and quickly found this new version was not user friendly.

Latest update now allows me to play a show but still can't skip forward or backward and can't stop it without killing the app. Huge, huge mistake on Dish's part to change the app. Can't believe they even pushed this out to the public.

    06/15/20 update to my previous post. App never works. When I go to watch a show on a channel it is stalls, freezing,then it starts loading so you have missed half your show. You go out of the app go back in into and the channel is blank and nothing is showing. Worst app ever. When you are streaming on your tablet or phone it is consistently freezing and has to load so you miss half the show you are watching. That has become very annoying.

    The app does not show all the videos that I have recorded on the dvr. Also, it shows episodes that i believe should be available on demand, but when I click on them, they do not play. Also, the skip ahead and skip back buttons are not in a convenient location and when you click on the buttons, they are not very responsive. In short, I want the old app back.

    The new android update is terrible, My dvr recordings should be available immediately. I shouldn't have to wait hours for it to pop up. The fast forward and rewind button needs to be spaced out and bigger. You shouldn't have to be forced to sit through 5 or 6 commercials when watching prime time. The app was just fine the way it was, I'm very disappointed.

    As usual when Dish updates an app it doesn't work. New app doesn't show most recently recorded shows (only shows from previous days) and has terrible Wifi connections, always buffering. New format on DVR shows listed is not user friendly. Dish should have left it alone! Rewind and fast forward "buttons" are totally misplaced at the top of the screen and are placed so close together on the phone that you can't hit one without hitting the other. Please DISH, go back to the app that was user friendly and actually worked!

    This app is absolutely fu**** trash!!! Everything about it sucks. If I could give negative stars, I would. When the app is on, it constantly buffers. When that's not happening, it freezes. If THATS not happening it just kicks you out and doesn't let you log back it. TRASH TRASH TRASH!! Don't download!!!!

    Worst upgrade I've ever seen!l Almost unusable!k I've been using it daily because I travel a lot for the last 2 years... it's been excellent. Then this new release came out in July 2020... absolute garbage!l I may cancel my subscription over this. Cannot fast forward during commercials. During a show the skip 30 seconds is so small of a button you cannot push it by itself. Delays and loading come up constantly... unusablle!k

    This app went from perfect to perfectly awful once they updated it. I can't forward through commercials, When i watch something it constantly freezes, and you can't watch a show where you last left off. You literally have to restart from the beginning. Not to mention many other issues. This is ridiculous. I want the old app back or at least make this as good as the last.

    Newest Android version terrible (prior to 5/28/2020) . Doesn't show all your recordings in your hopper DVR. Doesn't refresh, 16 hours behind. A BIG STEP BACKWARDS! Update of 5/28/2020 solved NOTHING and may have made things worst! Don't you guys test these things? Update on 6/4/20. Still many issues. Gets better and then worse. The DVR issues are back. Doesn't update in real time. "Resume" doesn't exist. Fast forward and reverse buttons too small and not responsive. Difficult to exit back. 7/14

    Up until about 2 weeks ago I could watch with no problems, it worked great. I tried to use it a couple of days ago and it now has no video or audio. I can use the quite and it will set the dvr timer. I called dish and the young man tried his best to get it working to no avail. Later I decided to reinstall the app. Now it tells me this app may not work with my device????? My tablet is not that old. Very disappointed, used this app a lot. 😣

    App is horrible. 3 months since posting. Dish has done very little to improve this app. This version locks up and must be stopped/restarted. On screen icons are small and often do not function correctly. Now it even will not connect . "Now it says reciever is offline, which is not correct ". When it works it spends majority of the time spooling.

    It I could give zero stars I would but can't. With the new update i was forced to do in July my app has not worked since. Just keeps saying your app is freshed but will not load. I have had no issues for 2 years. I hate that dish keeps removing channels off the air but still is lots of money. Now the app is not working I am thinking it might be time to change companies. Please take this back to before the update.

    This app is by far the worst I've ever used to stream any kind of videos. I constantly have to log back in every couple of days. When you click out of the app while your show is on a commercial and return moments later or even an hour later, the app won't let me return to live TV. So watching sports is horrible if you feel the need to open another app while your waiting for the game to come back on. In the middle of watching TV the app will stop your show and day its reconnecting.

    Live TV no longer works. Skip forward and reverse have horrible lag. Much worse than previous generation. It's like this was never tested in the real world. Please tell me how to go back to the previous version!!! New version 7/23. More often than not does not show all recordings on hopper and with same chance displays shows that were deleted from hopper. Dish has no software qc

    New App is TERRIBLE! The old app was great. I could watch shows from the Hopper on my tablet via WiFi all over the house. It was clean and efficient and the streaming quality was very good. This new app is just the opposite. It only streams via the internet. This means that the content must go from the Hopper consume my limited upload speed and then come back on download to my tablet IN THE NEXT ROOM! Whoever did this should be fired. It makes the app slow to respond and streaming is glitchy. :(

    This new app is TERRIBLE!!!.I just got the Galaxy S10 Plus and I never should have updated it thinking it was better. Not only can I not bring up all the settings the old version had, the new app continuously crashes and wants me to reconnect until it times itself out! I cant even watch Recorded Programs until 24 Hours Later!!! Error Codes one right after the other! NOW IM STUCK WITH THIS TERD! I think after reading all the reviews it's consistently saying bring back the old version that worked!

    Aweful, absolutely aweful! I can not pause, fast forward, skip back, stop or even play after the first time I push the play button. I started a show, needed to pause it but had to close the app to stop the show. I went back later to finish it and it wasn't there, it was on a show I think came on after the one I wanted to watch. Dish is getting more and more expensive with channels being removed from programming, and the few shows I can still watch, I can't, because of this terrible app.

    Horrible! The old app was much better! I use HughesNet for my internet provider and AT&T as my carrier so I expect SOME problems with streaming especially with high demand times but I haven't been able to get more than 1 or 2 minutes out of a hour show. If that. App opens, selects, shows connected, loading and starting streaming, but that's the end of it. It might start playing after a minute but stops after 3 or 4 seconds. Might start again for 3 or 4 more. Usually freezes completly after that!

    The new update is trash! Had finally gotten the old version working right and then they did this. The screen options don't work so you can't see what you'd like to watch. Now it's a freaking exploration to find live TV instead of the live TV button that was there. It takes forever to load video. The buttons are now tiny and you can't access the guide or DVR buttons unless you exit out of everything and go back to the homescreen. * Update Aug 5, 2020* Still doesn't work!

    WE WANT THE OLD VERSION BACK DISH!! Worst update ever! And dish knows and has had months to fix it. It just keeps getting worse! I get kicked out and have to log back in all the time, 3 times in the past 24 hours, and half the time it won't let you log in it just stays on the dish screen, on top of all the buffering, poor video quality, and many Many other problems. I highly recommend anyone thinking about getting dish to reconsider, there's way better providers for cheaper and less frustration

    For the most part, the app works well . Only had one issue where I had to reset the hopper while away from home. The biggest disappointment is only one person can use the app at a time. It does not matter whether streaming live channels or viewing the DVR. There are times when the sound does not work on the Android app and I must reboot my phone. I switched to Dish from DirecTV specifically for the app to view content away from home. Still disappointing, but better than DirecTV.

    Please bring back the old version of the video player. This one is horrible! It freezes all the time and I have to completely close out of the app and restart it. The rewind and forward buttons are so tiny it makes it impossible to use them. Did anyone even test this app before changing it from the old one? This is the worst app for watching television shows that I have ever used!

    You keep making updates where changes don't need to be made! You used to be able to decide whether to watch on the device, or on the TV. Can't choose TV anymore. App's remote will not turn on the television either. Only the hopper box turns on with the power button. Stop fixing things that don't need to be fixed!

    Since the last update this app is absolute trash. The video player is ridiculous and literally if anything else happens on my phone it freezes and I have to get all the way out of the app and back in. Everything takes absolutely forever to load. If you try to skip forwarded or go back it freezes. No episodes that I've watched on my DVR actually show on the app and vice versa whether it be things I've recorded or on demand programs it doesn't matter if I'm in my house on the same WiFi.

    The new app is horrible . You really cant watch live TV anymore or anything from your DVR . The transfer process has also become a nightmare because it keeps saying I need to update the license on alot of transfered shows which never happened on the old app. The old app was finally working really well so I'm confused on why it was scrapped for this new one that is useless. Seriously considering getting rid of Dish now because the apps ability to watch my DVR is the only reason I have Dish.

    Older version worked instantly with no buffering, stopping/starting several times per minute, channel list was also much more user friendly. This version does all things badly. Shows suggested for me are something I would absolutely not watch. Who determines my recommendations anyway? I would like to recommend something for them! Trying to offer a positive opinion but...Please go back to the old version.

    New update did not fix the problems in anyway still having every single problem I had before that is totally unused. I will be canceling my service if this is not get resolved soon and I'm sure I'm not the only one to think this. To add to my review I cannot pause rewind or fast forward my DVR I can't do anything your app is completely unusable please restore app to what it was before this previous update or like I said I will be canceling my service
