It would be nice to have a Dish Network app for my Roku player so I can watch live TV and or DVR on my Roku player if that makes sense thanks.

There is currently one for FireTV. There have been talks of ROKU, but I would only expect it “soon”.

"SOON" means probably never, there's no upside for Dish to add a ROKU app since that would cut into their Joey rental boxes.

It is sad. More reason to switch to Direct TV they have APPs for Roku and all other meads. Been along time Dish user however support for other media's would be great. May have to consider switching.

Hi Butch28. We make updates and add features all the time! We even just made our Hopper, Joey, and Wally receivers compatible with Google Home and Google Assistant integration. 

 

This Suggestions board is a great place to keep building ideas together so thank you all for your input.

Directv Now has an app for Roku because it is a streaming service only - Direct TV satellite service doesn't have a Roku app either.

100% agree, yes, it's time for a Dishanyhere app for Roku. Dish Network, please get to it. Amazon Fire Stick has one, why not Roku?

Not all so. Some of us are still operating older equipment (VIP 612) or have TV's in the garage or other places where it's impractical to move a Joey from room to room.
