DISH Anywhere currently does not support video downloads to your PC.
If you are receiving a message stating that a video is not found or is no longer available, it is likely because the video has expired.
As much as we'd love to keep all our videos available all the time, content providers will sometimes limit the length of time a video is available or ask us to expire a video. We will do our best to provide you with information on availability and warn you when a video is set to expire.
The TV shows on DISH Anywhere are provided under licensing rules that can limit the number of episodes we can serve online and the length of time they are available on our site. If you can’t find the episode you want, it might have expired; it's also possible that we have not yet made it available on the website.
Due to copyright restrictions, the online videos on DISH Anywhere are currently available only to users within the United States and it's territories. We would love to make our content available internationally and are working with our content providers to relax these restrictions.
While outside of the U.S., DISH customers with a DISH DVR can use DISH Anywhere to access their DVRs and schedule recordings.
