Dish Network announces a few deals with Amazon

Amazon Echo Look’s mobile apps are now available

Amazon Echo Look’s mobile apps are now available

Those customers can enable the Dish TV skill via the Alexa app and implement it on the Hopper or Wally device by entering the code generated by the Alexa app. After a quick setup, Alexa is then able to navigate, play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and search content based on channel, title, actor or genre. But of course you need an Echo Look device to use this and that will cost you $199.99 through the Amazon store.

Amazon Alexa voice integration is now available on the Hopper DVR.

With DISH Anywhere allowing DISH customers access to not only live TV but on-demand content and anything that was saved to their DVR, this new device support will be ideal for those who travel for work or any occasion and have a Fire TV stick with which to plug into TVs at hotels or other places where they're staying.

Fire TV is the first TV-connected retail OTT platform that supports the Dish Anywhere app, and gives Dish subs an additional way to their pay TV subscriptions on the TV. You can connect the two by heading into the Alexa app and finding the DISH TV skill under the "Music, Video & Books" category.

"This marks the first time customers can use a media player to seamlessly access Dish Anywhere on any TV with an HDMI input, either at home or on the go", Dish said in another statement. Hopefully, more providers will follow suit, making TV a hands-free experience for both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant users. VIP users can use DISH Anywhere to tap into on-demand titles.

Amazon.com, Inc. shares were trading at $970.67 per share on Monday afternoon, up $10.83 (+1.13%). It's also important to keep in mind that DISH Anywhere is not a monthly streaming service like HBO Now, Hulu, or Netflix, but the companion app for DISH network.
