DISH Network Satellite TV for PC
Getting satellite TV for your PC is definitely one of the most exciting recent developments in subscription TV technology. And there are so many new DISH Network® Satellite TV for PC options, the company is decidedly at the forefront of this innovative trend. But don’t take the word of the folks here at InternetLion.com at face-value. Read on for excerpts of real DISH Network satellite TV on PC reviews as well as information on how you can enjoy DISH Network satellite TV on your laptop and where to find satellite TV on PC software.
DISH Network’s Satellite TV on PC Reviews
The satellite TV industry’s leader for technological innovations, DISH Network has broken new ground throughout 2010 in offering satellite TV for PC users. And these efforts have led to the company garnering awards from both PC Magazine and CNET, as well as many positive satellite TV on PC reviews from big-name publications like the London Times Literary Supplement.
For instance, LTLS writer Mark Frary said in one of these DISH Network satellite TV on PC reviews on EchoStar’s SlingBox that “(EchoStar) says: ‘Watch TV in another room or another hemisphere’…. For once, the hype is right. You can watch repeats of Minder in Manila.” ComeToTerms said the following about the DISH Network receiver with a built-in SlingBox, the ViP922, in one of CNET’s DISH Network satellite TV on PC reviews: “By far DISH Network after months of research is the pinnacle when it comes to cable TV programming and DVR hardware.”
DISH Network Satellite TV for PC: How It Works
DISH Network’s satellite TV for PC feature comes standard as part of its newest HD DVR/receiver, the ViP922 SlingLoaded DVR. The device that allows ViP922 users to watch DISH Network satellite TV anywhere including on their laptops and smartphones is called a SlingBox—hence the “SlingLoaded” in the DVR’s name—and it is made by DISH Network’s parent company, EchoStar. As a result, SlingLoaded technology is only available from DISH Network, and though imitators might try to create their own SlingBox knockoffs, reviewers and critics affirm, as the saying goes: “Ain’t nothin’ like the real thing.”
To get your hands on this great technology, all you have to do is sign up for one of the DISH Network deals featured here on InternetLion.com and have an HD TV and a fast enough Internet connection (a minimum of 1.5 mbps broadband download speed and 150-600 kbps upload speed is needed). Assuming you meet these requirements, DISH Network will let you have one of its ViP922s free of charge. Then, all you have to do to watch satellite TV on your laptop or smart phone is download the appropriate DISH Network satellite TV on PC software.
This step, too, is easier than breathing as DISH Network offers all the latest satellite TV on PC software for its ViP922 on its website. DISH Network also offers superb support from their techs and customer service center.
