The Dish Anywhere is a complimentary service to go with your subscribed service. If you have a sling loaded DVR, you’ll be able to watch live tv from almost all of your channels on the go. If you do not, or do not have your receiver connected to the internet, there is also VOD available on demand for channels you sub to.
It is important to know the content on demand on DA is not the same content available on demand on the receiver. They are 2 completely separate databases and systems.
