SlingPlayer doesn't work with my DISH Network DVR

Want to use the SlingLoaded™ features of your DISH Network DVR with your iPhone or Android mobile device?

If you're using the ViP®922, Hopper™ with Sling, or Hopper, ViP 722 or 722k HD DuoDVR® with a Sling Adapter, there's no need to purchase SlingPlayer for your mobile device. In fact, it won't work with your DISH Network DVR.

Instead, there's a FREE alternative: DISH Network's DISH Anywhere™ ... the perfect counterpart for your DISH Network DVR. Check it out!

There's a version of DISH Anywhere for your Apple iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or Android tablet.
