Dish Network Intros an Online Portal for Content

Posted Thu Aug 26, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

If you're a subscriber, you'll be able to watch movies, shows, and even live TV from your broadband connected computer.

Television providers are in the midst of figuring out just how the internet can tie in with their offerings. Some get it wrong, and some get close, but Dish Network is one of those very few that seems to get it right.

If you're a Dish subscriber you can head over to and log in to view just about everything you could want. You've got access to over 150,000 pieces of video consisting of movies, television shows and clips. Even if a majority of that number is taken up by clips, it's an impressive count.

If you've got the ViP 922 SlingLoaded DVR – or if you end up buying the Sling Adapter when it comes out – you'll also be able to watch both live television and shows that you've recorded on your DVR.

It's not a bad setup considering that it's coming absolutely free with your Dish subscription.
