    From Engadget:

    Dish Network watching Android owners are no longer in the "TV anywhere" darka new app for your phone will turn it into a remote control, manage your DVR from afar, and (best of all!) stream video.

    Remote video will require a compatible Sling device at home, but works over WiFi or 3G, which is a treat. And more of a treat? It's free

    It's in the Market Place now.

    Anyone successfully get this to work? I can see my recordings and it gives me the option to play on my phone but then it "searches" forever and never loads. It does get it to play on my receiver and the remote option works but I want to play it on my phone

    You need the Sling adapter for dish network or the 922 DVR for this app to work. If you don't have the equipment, it won't work.

    Yes without the sling adapter or the 922 you only have the ability to check the program guide. Now if you have the Sling Adapter connected and a compatible receiver you would be able to watch live TV or any of your recorded content on your android, this works on tablets too. Being a DISH employee I know that you can't do this with any other provider, just some limited content that's available other places online anyway. Free download in the Android market.

    to expand on what fettman24 said. Without the slingbox, you can browse your guide, change the channel on the tv, set dvr recordings, and pause, rewind, and fastforward live tv. So even without the slingbox its still a very useful app.

    The slingbox just adds the ability to watch tv on your phone via the dish box.

    I would love to be able to use this feature, but I can't imagine how quick it will burn through the battery. I guess I could always get a couple spare batteries. I heard you can get the sling box free if you upgrade your equipment. Is that true?

    free with a new contract for new customers only.....sadly cable and dish providers could give two craps about existing customers. Thats why every two years i switch providers. better perks that way. lol
