Roku, the company taking cord-cutting outside of maternity wards, recently announced two updates to their service â€“ an improved search function and upgrades to two of their players.
The improvement to Rokuâ€™s search feature is a humble but efficient ability to search for programming by streaming channel name. With over 2,000 streaming channels available, this provides Roku users an easier way to locate their favorite content. â€œRoku Feedâ€ is another helpful addition to Rokuâ€™s service, which allows users to follow programs and movies they want to watch. â€œWeâ€™re launching it with a focus on â€˜Movies Coming Soon,â€™ ending the guessing game around when a box office hit is available for streaming, which services offer the movie or how much it costs at a given time,â€ said Roku CEO Anthony Wood in an April 6th blog post.

If you’re already a DISH Network customer, then you might already be familiar with DISH Anywhere – an excellent feature that makes it possible to bring experience of viewing DISH more places with you. Being able to watch your favorite programming at home is one of the classic, and perhaps the preferred way to take in DISH, but life of the modern day person is certainly getting busier and busier.
As a result, times being spent at home could very well be dwindling when there is travel to be done here, or having a business meeting there. One of the things that might be on your mind while you’re out in an unfamiliar city out of your state is:
Well if you’re a DISH Network customer, missing your shows could very well become a thing of the past when you order the right equipment. Through devices such as the DISH Hopper with SlingÂ® Technology, or the DuoDVRÂ® ViP 722k, you’ll be able to enact the power of the SlingÂ® Adapter to select receivers to watch DISH Anywhere.
As long as you have a trusty broadband connection in your home, such as dishNET, you’ll be able to power up the SlingÂ® Adapter, which acts as a sort of pathway between your home TV and your mobile devices. When connected, your personal mobile device like your smartphone (select devices) or your laptop becomes a new entertainment center.
This is all up to you? When you’re out and about, when do you think the best times to fire up DISH Anywhere would be?
Is your appointment taking longer than expected? Not a problem. With the DISH Anywhere App in place, you’ll be able to watch all kinds of live TV programming, recorded programming from your HD DVR, or even select On Demand programming as well. Make your waiting time seem to go a bit more quicker when you are wrapped up in a suspenseful drama, or a comedy (just try not to distract other people in the room – you might make them jealous).
Time never seems to go slower when dealing with an airline. Just when you think the time has come to board, a delay happens out of nowhere. This can be pretty frustrating, but DISH Anywhere can make things go so much better. Just relax, power up your tablet or smartphone, and let the time pass with the best programming that DISH Network has to offer.
Forgot to bring your book? Need to take a break from outside work and studying? Bring DISH Anywhere to the coffeeshop on a Saturday or on a weeknight evening and relax a little bit over a latte (or whichever your coffee/tea weapon of choice might be).

The TailgaterÂ® from DISH Network is a piece of equipment like no other. It’s one thing to get the enjoyment that you do out of watching your favorite shows, games and more at your home, but what if you could bring the power of DISH Network anywhere with you that you went, with television and all? That is what the TailgaterÂ® does. It’s a mini portable satellite antenna that allows you to bring the big screen anywhere with you.
With that in mind, you want to ask yourself: “when is really the right time to bring theÂ TailgaterÂ® Â into play? It might be more common than you think.
As the name suggests, theÂ TailgaterÂ® Â is meant for tailgating. Right now is the the time to bring theÂ TailgaterÂ® into action as the football season fires up. It was only last Saturday that college football season got its start, and with the NFL regular season getting underway, you’ll have the chance to see what the TailgaterÂ®Â Â is all about.Â
So why would anyone bring theÂ TailgaterÂ® Â to a game when there is one happening already? Well, as you and your friends are waiting to enter the stadium, there’s a good chance that another game is being covered or is already on. Through DISH Network, there are all kinds of sports channels available in your lineup, including ESPN channels, beIN sport, Fox Sports and so much more. Keep the charge going with a range of all kinds of games happening. You might even make a few new friends along the way.
Campgrounds all over the country bring a wealth of activities for you and your friends/family to get involved in. From the morning hikes, to kayaking, fishing and more, you might find that you need to catch a break. Return to your campsite and see what’s on the TV while still being outside.
You don’t need to retreat into your RV to watch DISH TV. TheÂ TailgaterÂ® Â can fit right in the back of your pickup truck, or even a modern station wagon. Catch some wind and grill up some burgers and hang back with DISH .
Autumn might be just about here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fit a nice backyard get together still. With the power of your TV and theÂ TailgaterÂ® , you’ll be able to provide easy entertainment to everyone that you have invited. Maybe it is similar to that of the tailgating scenario, but one way or another, you’re still bring a level of entertainment that only DISH can provide, and everyone is still getting the fresh air and Sun to keep the mood positive.
How do you use theÂ TailgaterÂ®? Tell Cannon Satellite TV to share your ideas with the rest of the Cannon community.
