Dish Anywhere is Deeply . Won't work on PC or Surface Pro

I am on the road alot on weekends, so I want to watch Dish anywhere.    I have a Microsoft Surface Pro.  It doesn't work at all with this. And, yes, I have been on the phone with Dish support and chat and Microsoft.  It simply doesn't work.  

Now I'm on the road with a PC and I get "The receiver is not connected to the internet."  But my wife is at home.  And it is absolutely connectec to the internet.  Fortunately I can watch it on my Kindle Fire, but not on the PC.  No matter what I do.  It simply doesn't work.

 

If a fix isn't found soon, I'm switching carriers.

As an interesting test, IF you set up your phone as a hotspot and then connect your Surface Pro to your phone, does Dish Anywhere work? I am wondering if where you are is bloking the connection. Hotels sometimes block a bunch of ports. 

 

Also, make sure you update the Dish anywhere app, as they updated the security a while back and I noted that my PC app stopped working as well. Updating the app fixed that.
