Watch offline with DISH Anywhere
DISH Anywhere allows you to transfer (download) DVR recordings to your mobile device to watch offline. This is pretty sweet for satellite internet customers since it can help prevent the aforementioned bandwidth and data usage issues.
How’s that? Well, once you’ve transferred a movie to your device, you’re no longer streaming it over your internet connection. That’s probably why we were able to wiggle around the one-user limit too.
And when you watch a transfer on your mobile network, it won’t use data if you remember to do your transfers on your home network.
Another benefit of transferring your DVR recordings to your mobile device is commercial skipping. You can’t skip ads on DISH on-demand movies and shows—but you can if you record them to your DVR.
One caveat, though: transferring DVR recordings to a mobile device deletes the recording from your DVR. So maybe don’t transfer something that someone at home intends to watch while you’re gone.
