  1. This is pretty sweet…reminds me a little of the TV Everywhere app on my iphone. As a DISH customer/employee I got it the day it dropped…I can also watch live TV on my phone too though, not just recorded events. It’s a tie between this and my Google TV, which brings my two favorite things together…TV and the Internet!
