I know not everyone can do this, will want to do this.. but I just switched my cable over the other day to dishnetwork (hot deal w/ 200 amazon credit w/ 2yr) got 3mos of blockbuster and 3mos of hbo etc the typicals free install, free dvr, 2 free hd units, and the dvr has a 4th SD output for another future tv or my computer. Not to mentino I'm going to be able to lower my monthly bill... only keeping cable inet.
I've been wishing for netflix for some time now, well it's no longer needed, there is a BETTER option. Some media you need dishnetwork, for some you only need a blockbuster movie pass for (10mo). I was already using a bb movie pass anyway so no cost for me, just 3 extra free mos.
Now between having dishonline.com and my blockbuster movie pass I have access to 10,000+ tv shows and movies, including some epix and other movie channels all streaming off their web site. I have tried this and it works great, you do need a pretty solid connect to stream really smooth though like any similar service. I also have a sling adapter coming in the mail and from my understanding as long as your device can do flash (ours can) you can also watch live tv from ANYWHERE off dishonline's web site. This means access to my full channel line up on my TP anywhere I GO!
EDIT: the movie section requires a plugin, so the HBO, stars etc won't work unless someone can get the widevineMediaTransformer.Dmv to install on the browser. so its not pure bliss on the tp. Installer works for the typical ie, Firefox, chrome. All
I just want to take a second to thank netflix for their poor support and poor customer service.. if they had developed a TP app I never would have looked further and this is SOOO much better. More content and BETTER content than netflix has online! Thanks again netflix
How do you stream without a sling? I've been trying to do this for the last half hour, and dish tells me that I need a sling to stream.
