How On-the-Go Families Take Sports TV Everywhere

May 11 | Posted by The Staff | Tips

Enjoying the “feels like summer” weather may cause you to miss out on some must-see sporting events on programming carried by Versus or ESPN. While the family is having fun soaking up the sun on a hiking trail or bike ride, sometimes you can’t help but think that there’s nothing better than watching sports live. Seeing as content streaming technology via mobile devices has advanced in the last few months, it has given consumers the opportunity to stream both live and recorded sports programming from the DISH Remote Access app.

Both the NHL and NBA playoffs are in full swing while the Amgen Tour of California is coming up on May 15-22, all of which are among just some of the anticipated sporting events that will be cause to tune in for. With Mother’s Day coming up as well, we’re not exactly encouraging you to check out the Kentucky Derby on your smart phone during dinner time, but it just goes to show that it would be completely possible seeing as you have a compatible mobile device and proper equipment at home. DISH Network subscribers can catch all of their favorite sports action on TV while they’re on-the-go from any of the following compatible devices: iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry phone, Android Phone, Android Tablet, PC and laptop.

Setting up the Sling Adapter to your DVR is the easy part! In addition to a few simple steps, adding a user-friendly Sling Adapter to your satellite TV service will allow you to download the DISH Remote Access app and start watching sports TV everywhere. First, you must make sure that you have a compatible DVR, either the ViP 722 or the ViP 722k HD DuoDVR will work. As long as you have already established an Internet connection at home, you can plug the DISH Sling Adapter USB Drive into your DVR’s USB port. Once you’ve downloaded the DISH Remote Access app on your compatible mobile device from the Android Marketplace, or iTunes Store then you can begin watching live and recorded TV shows and sports on-the-go. Not only can you catch all of the Versus programs that you recorded on your DVR, but you can also manage your DVR from your smart phone if there’s a cycling race or boxing match that you want to record and watch later.

Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Enjoy the good weather outdoors and never miss another sporting event now that you can take your TV everywhere.
