Plus, DISH customers can enjoy these advanced features:
To Schedule DVR Recordings:
You must have an internet-connected DVR on your DISH account. Log in with your DISH user ID and password and start setting up your timers.
To Watch My Live TV and DVR Recordings:
You must have a Hopper With Sling or a Hopper 3 to watch live TV and DVR. Your home receiver must also be connected to the Internet. If you do not have one of the supported receivers, you can still watch live TV (limited channels) and access thousands of On Demand movies and shows.
If you do not have a DISH user ID or are not subscribed to DISH services go to www.dish.com to set these up today! Once you have completed this process you can log in to DISH Anywhere and enjoy premium content and features.
If you are a DISH subscriber, but do not have a user ID and password, you can register your account online by entering your account details here.
If you are not a DISH subscriber, we invite you to go to www.dish.com and see what you're missing out on.
On the Profiles page, click the pencil icon on the account you want to set parental controls for, and change account type to ‘Kid’ or click on "Add Profile" to create a kids profile.
Alternatively, click the radio button for ‘Change Parental Controls’ and edit the TV ratings that can be allowed in a profile. Select the movie and show ratings that you wish to block. You will need to create a passcode to save the changes. Remember your passcode as you will be asked to enter it every time you select a title to watch that exceeds the rating you have allowed. You will also need to enter this passcode to make any future changes to the Parental Control settings.
Note: Setting Parental Controls does not hide the content on the site, but the content will only play when you enter your passcode successfully.
DISH customers can log in to watch even more content from the networks they already subscribe to through their home DISH account – including Starz, A&E, TNT, TBS, and more.
To see the Networks available to you, click “Networks” in the main menu.
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.
While outside of the U.S., DISH customers with a DISH DVR can use DISH Anywhere to access their DVRs and schedule recordings.
If you don't have one of these compatible DVRs, you can upgrade today by calling 1-800-894-9131 or by chatting with our agents by clicking on the "Chat Support" button at the bottom of the page. Our chat agents are available between 7 AM and 2 AM EST. You must be logged in with your DISH credentials to access Chat Support.
