Dish Anywhere App not connecting

RGJS
Extra

Up until about 2 weeks ago, I had no issues using DishAnywere on my iphone, ipad and laptops.   Recently, when it attempts to connect, I receive the message:

 

Connection Failed

Unable to connect.  Please make sure your receiver and your device are connecgted to the internet and try again.  For more information visit mydish.com/connect

 

I've tried to uninstall the app and reinstall, rebooted the hopper, tried it on different iphones, ipads and laptops.   The only time it does work is if I am connected to the home wifi and at home.   So what good is that!

 

Any body know of a work around?   I contacted DISH and they said theyd open a ticket but couldn't tell me when they get to fixing it.

What are the download and upload speeds at both locations? Based on what you said, it sounds like the upload speed the receiver is getting, may not be the best. You can test using speedtest.org or speedtest.net

Hi Mrlogboy! You did everything right. I'm going to go ahead and submit feedback about this over to my technical operations team so that they can take a look at this. You can also contact our internet department at 1-800-333-3474 to see if they have any other options available that can help fix this.

I can’t get my app to open either - both iPhone 7 and iPad. It just sits on the black screen with “dish anywhere” and the spinning icon, never loads, never progresses, what a waste

Dish Anywhere is Dish Nowhere.   Does not work at all.  iPad.  iPhone.   Mac (Safari, Chrome).   iPad just sits there and spins "Signing In".   Getting ready to take Dish down and replace it with different services.   Tired of stuff not working.
