NEW YORK -- November 13, 2013

Responding to growing consumer demand to watch favorite content on mobile
devices, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) is readying an upgrade to its DISH Anywhere^™ app
that incorporates Transfers functionality to both iOS and Android phones and
tablets. Using the new DISH Anywhere app, Hopper™ with Sling® users will soon
be able to transfer their favorite shows for offline viewing to iPhones, iPads
and Android phones and tablets. This enhancement will be pushed as an update
to the free DISH Anywhere app by the end of the year.

Currently, DISH offers two different apps for remote viewing, DISH Anywhere
and Hopper Transfers. DISH Anywhere is used when connected to the Internet for
remote viewing of live TV programs or recorded events and is available on most
Internet-connected devices including iPhones, iPads and Android phones and

Hopper Transfers is the second DISH app for remote viewing. It is used to move
recorded programs from a Hopper with Sling to mobile devices for watching
programs when an Internet connection is unavailable. This app and capability
is currently only available for iPads.


By the end of the year, both convenient features, Internet viewing and
transfers, will be available within the new DISH Anywhere app and will work
with both iOS and Android mobile devices.

“Responding to subscribers who want an even easier way to fully utilize the
capabilities of the Hopper with Sling, today, we’re announcing an overhaul of
the DISH Anywhere app,” said Vivek Khemka, senior vice president, product
management at DISH. “By year’s end, Hopper with Sling users will be able to
remotely watch live and recorded shows and transfer recorded programs to their
iOS and Android devices, all within the new DISH Anywhere app.”
