I attempted to update DISH Anywhere on my SAMSUNG Galaxy TAB2 that i have used for DISH Anywhere for the past 3 years, but it tells my device is not compatible. What has changed so that my device isn't supported?
Do you have any experience in rom flashing? I just checked XDA and there are Marshmallow roms and I even saw an experimental Nougat rom. I'd highly recommend flashing, even if you decide to watch Dish on your other device. Doing so for new features, other app compatibility, and especially security makes it a worthwhile task. Not to mention you won't have to deal with all the Samsung bloat or TouchWiz.
Sorry for the late reply but yes, it is your OS version that is the problem. It says on the Dish Anywhere compatibility page that it only works with Android 5.3.6 and up.
There is a site called XDA. If you search for XDA Tab 2, you should be able to find the portal for the Tab 2 on the site. There should be guides there to get you started. You may also want to consider checking out YouTube if you want a visual guide.
I'd throw you some links but my message failed to post when I tried that so I guess foreign links are blocked?
you were spot on. I upgraded to Android 6.0 and DISH Anywhere is working like a champ. It was an interesting experience, and it took a few times before everything installed correctly, but it's working.
