Dish Network has extended the reach of its Dish Anywhere app to the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX tablet, expanding a device list that already includes other Android-powered tablets and smartphones as well as Apple iPads and iPhones.
In January at the International CES event, Dish announced that it had begun to support the Kindle Fire lineup.
The Dish Anywhere App, when paired with the Hopper with Sling HD-DVR, supports live TV streaming alongside access to a library of VOD content over Wi-Fi and cellular connections. A recently integrated Hopper Transfers component lets users sideload DVR-recorded content to the mobile device for offline viewing.
“By offering DISH Anywhere to this new group of tablet owners, we continue to show that we are dedicated to the expanding mobile market by allowing our customers to watch everything, anywhere no matter what mobile device they are using,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, director of product management at Dish, in a statement.
