    Dish Network: “OTT could be bigger than DTH

    Watching WWE programming via the WWE Network is a better experience than watching WWE RAW and Smackdown on USA Network and SYFY via DISH because of DISH Compression. I've actually had the screen distort/blur if they drop confetti and/or use a lot of LED lighting effects on RAW/Smackdown vs. the...

    Will the HWS ever get the CUI?

    I forced updated Tuesday with the button press combo and I like the CUI. Sure a couple of things are missing (recording to second Hopper if Hopper has all three tuners in use and 1/2 hour off from the EPG but overall I think the UI operates more smoothly and was able to access some menus faster...

    The PlayStation Vue Thread

    Centric used to be BET Jazz before they re-branded the channel. I believe another rebranded channel ... I believe Nick Music was MTV Hits.

    S541Old CUI Update Hopper with Sling

    Weirdness my second Hopper w/Sling with S541 was able to view the said recording that keeps crashing the first Hopper w/ Sling without crashing it. The only correlation I can think of that would cause this is something to do with HDMI as the first Hopper w/ Sling isn't displaying the episode...

    S541Old CUI Update Hopper with Sling

    My Hopper w/ Sling is refusing to play this weeks episode of Channel Zero: Candle Cove ... the screen just goes black, locks up and the Hopper w/ Sling reboots itself. I just noticed I was at S541.

    New Roku on the way

    The Roku Express was terrible. I had audio loss and a jittery picture while trying to stream from netflix the first time I used it. I ended up returning it. I think the culprit is a cheap wifi chip as it was basically next to my router (about two to four feet, no wall in between) but was still...

    The new Mi Box is out

    Mine still get some occasional use. I actually have my Roku plugged into the HDMI in port and I use imdb and/or check my email. Because I'm smug I did netflix while watching netflix in picture in picture mode :) Not having Hulu crippled the device after Hulu blocked them but I still used...

    So what happens when the Deathstar takes over Time Warner?

    Weird, just after I posted I went back to mydish account because I remembered my HBO promo ran out on 10/11 and I cancelled it and was offered HBO for $7.50 for six more months. Maybe DISH has limits on how many times you can "game" the system. This will be my second time taking the offer of...

    So what happens when the Deathstar takes over Time Warner?

    What could happen is the base price of HBO seems to be anywhere from $15(Now) -$19(DISH) DirecTV subs could get a $5 discount vs. other subs when adding HBO (owned by AT&T at this point) onto their DirecTV bill.(owned by AT&T) Of course this is such a moot point since right now I get HBO for...

    Mi Box as an alternative to a Joey? Maybe.

    I've tried out a few of those cheap android boxes but PQ was always an issue for me, along with WiFi signal issues. (Which are probably some what tied together BUT I bought an USB ethernet dongle and the PQ didn't really improve much on those devices).

    Mi Box as an alternative to a Joey? Maybe.

    I just tried a DVR recording and it doesn't seem to initialize when you choose watch on device. :( Live TV works and the channel remote within the app works though ...

    Mi Box as an alternative to a Joey? Maybe.

    I bought one of these Mi Box Android TV units at Walmart for $69 and the hardware is pretty decent (not sure how it handles 4K as I don't have a 4K TV) and initially I was pretty disappointed with the offerings on the "Android TV" PlayStore. (Think GoogleTV PlayStore...) Almost to the point...

    The new Mi Box is out

    This thing is awesome ... I've pretty much side loaded EVERYTHING onto it including DISH ANYWHERE. I can't judge on the 4K side but even with the lack of TV integration this was everything the Logitech Revue should have been out of the box.

    Upgrade original Hopper to new UI issues

    Wouldn't the work around (and annoying to those who don't save series) be just to save the PTAT series to the second Hopper w/ Sling so it shows up in the Recorded Events folder ?

    Upgrade original Hopper to new UI issues

    My cousin is going to be sooooooo mad when we get upgraded since there is no more A-Z sorting ... I'm always giving him crap about how he sorts A-Z when I've always used "date recorded"

    Dish charges shipping for broken receivers? And, other musings on my super-dead 722K.

    Edit: Holy zombie thread... The Protection Plan is a big waste and I've thought about taking it off of my account numerous times but I will say this being on the protection plan I have never been charged $15 for a tech visit, they have always been free. Besides upgrading my service though...

    Dish Movie Pack

    I will also mention if you don't have Starz! Starz VOD (not the channels) are included in the Dish Movie Pack. This is how I currently sub to Starz!

    Dish Movie Pack

    No, I believe Logo & Centric was moved to Americas Top 250. I have the Dish Movie Pack (Formerly Dish Platinum, Blockbuster @ Home ) and I lost the channels a couple months back...

    DVR alert: Expedition Unknown

    Didn't I already see Josh Gates hunt for the Yeti on Destination Truth ? Just kidding, thanks for the update. Another show to keep an eye on is FX and American Horror Story. FX Now has it listed as American Horror Story: Roanoke but DISH has it listed as American Horror Story: 6

    GRIT TV on Channel 217

    For fans of westerns, it looks like dish added a western channel GRIT TV on channel 217. I just noticed this flipping through channels. It's in SD only and of course more than likely this channel can vanish at anytime as it's in one of those "we pay dish to carry us" channel spots.
