    I got one of those sling adapters last week. It is cool, however the one time I really wanted to watch on the evo, the kids had set the DVR to record something else and I was stuck watching cartoons. But, yeah, it is cool. It would be really cool if we could output to a TV via HDMI.

    I am using a Orb on my desktop with a tv tuner card connected to my Directv box and it works great and is free.

    Can you get all channels you're subscribed to?

    Does this require a PC at all? Do you have to have the DVR? I just have a basic Dish Network box.

    Default TV everywhere with DISH

    DISH Network TV everywhere works on Laptops, Tablets, and Smartphone’s. Just connect the Sling adapter to a 722 or 722k HD DVR and download the app. Being a DISH employee I know you will get all the programming that you are subscribed to and you can watch what you have recorded on you DVR and set up timers for your recordings with DISH Remote Access.

    Just to clarify, Nathaniel, all I need is the DVRand Sling Adapter? I don't need to have any kind of internet access to get TV on my Android?

    If that's the case I'm getting this!

    I've been holding out on getting the sling adapter because I don't want to spend the $99 only to find out my connection isn't strong enough. Since you're a DISH employee, do you know if I could buy and try for a day to see if it works for me? Or, can you direct me to someone else? I'd rather not go through regular Dish support in India. Thanks.

    Can anyone answer my question? I don't have home internet of any kind. Can I just get the DVR and use this app on my Android?

    I have used a Slingbox with both Dish and Direct TV for over a year. You do require an internet connection. All you do is install the slingbox mobile app on your phone and go. Works great but it does eat up your battery. I especially liked it during football season. I would listen to the Packers on the radio and since there is a delay I could watch the winning touchdown on my phone right after I heard it on the radio.

    Hey Chrisy sorry if I was not clear in my last post you do have to have internet with either WiFi or a ethernet connection to the back of a 722 or 722k model receiver in order for this to work. Theey even have a youtube vidoe on this if you want to check this out. I dont believe they will allow me to post links on this site but if you have any more questions please call us or you can chat with us on out online website.

    What kind of quality would one get over a dsl connection? My dsl only gets about 650K up. I know it works great over cable internet. I'd hate to spend 100 bucks just to find out my dsl was too slow.

    It allows you to watch your sat online with a computer or android phone. I think the adapter just allows for live shows while the slingbox allows both live and recorded.

    Chrisy- I hope you don't mind me jumping in here as well. Being a fellow employee as well, I just wanted to say that you do need internet access. How it works is you need a home internet connection, and it is preferred that you have it on your mobile device as well. So once you have that you can start viewing from anywhere! In OR out of the US, on multiple devices and it isn't just a limited amount of content. Even if the internet is an additional cost, which it is for me since I didn't have it before. It is so worth it. I get extra TV's for an additional $15 a month! If you are interested in something such as this, since you have just the basic receiver you would need to upgrade. For a majority of our customers this is free of charge. If you are interested email me @ and I will be happy to have one of our Customer Service Reps take a look and give you an idea of what you would be looking at!
    Brook****- You can adjust your timers to make sure that this doesn't happen! If you need any help just give us a call and one of our team members will be willing to assist you.

    Since the other person never answered my question I'll try asking you.

    Is DSL at 650-700k up enough bandwidth for sling to work for me?
