    If all else fails and you can't get it to work, many of us have had good success with Amazon's Firestick. They run $40 for the regular and $50 for the 4K version but are often put on sale.

    I'm considering it. Are you running the Dish Anywhere App through Firestick or simply selecting your subscribed channels and activating each? I would prefer the same user experience I get n my Android phone. Let me know.

    The Firestick is what I use (i have the 4K stick). Like most streaming devices you download the apps you want. So I DL'd the official Dish Anywhere app and followed instructions. When activating, you have to verify that you are a Dish customer yada yada yada, but once I did it even had my "Favorites" correct. It is slightly different than the app on my mobile, but it's easy and intuitive.

    And the new YouTube app they just put up on the stick is marvelous.

    Yes, all my DISH equipment is on the same Network (router). I just checked my DISH Anywhere app in my Firestick and I have a choice in the settings for either Hopper 3.

    MSRP (and yeah, if you pay that you must need it quick!)
