DISH Lets You Watch Live TV on Your iPad

Posted Thu Dec 2, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Thanks to an update to Apple's device, Remote Access is now available.

The folks over at DISH Network launched their new Sling adapter a few weeks ago and while it easily satisfied the desire to watch television no matter where you are, there was something missing – the iPad.

Today DISH has announced that the iPad is now up and running with DISH Remote Access, allowing iPad owners to watch TV anywhere they've got an internet connection. You can watch live TV, check out your recordings, manage your DVR and everything else the rest of the enabled devices can do.

You'll need the appropriate DISH Network ViP 722 or 722k HD DVR and the $99 Sling Adapter to go with it, but the app itself can be downloaded free directly from the iTunes Store.
