Dish Anywhere Comes to Fire TV

The Dish Anywhere app has expanded beyond mobile phones to the TV on Fire TV sticks and media players. The app can access a Dish Hopper receiver’s live TV, guides, and DVR. Users can start recording or set up scheduled recordings.

With the addition of Dish Anywhere to a device that is connected to a TV, it eliminates the need to rent additional Joeys (receivers) or have an installer come to add Dish TV to a new room. Using the app is essentially the same experience as using a Joey. Dish is not saying when the app will be available on other media players and TVs but it seems to be going in the direction of apps like Xfinity for cable TV access.
