DISH's (NASDAQ:DISH) DISH Anywhere app is now available on Android TV devices. While DISH Anywhere has been available on Android mobile devices since 2013, customers can now use Android TV media players and smart TVs via an HDMI input for the first time to access their DISH programming at home or on the go.

DISH Anywhere is designed to let Hopper customers watch 100% of their live and recorded content, plus on-demand titles, from any location on Internet-connected mobile devices, including smart phones, tablets and computers, and on TV sets via Amazon Fire TV and now Android TV.

"Media players provide easy access to video content, so it's no wonder one-third of U.S. broadband households own these devices," said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. "By expanding the DISH Anywhere app to Android TV, we're giving our customers more ways to view their content on devices they already own, at no additional cost."

DISH Anywhere can be accessed on Android TV devices, including media players like AirTV Player, Mi Box and NVIDIA Shield TV, and Sharp Aquos and Sony Bravia smart TVs. It's also available on DISH's EVOLVE set-back box for hotels.

The following DISH set-top boxes support DISH Anywhere: Hopper 3, Hopper with Sling, and first-generation Hopper or compatible ViP receivers connected to a Sling Adapter. All DISH customers may use DISH Anywhere to watch on-demand titles. The free app is available at the Google Play Store.
