    DISH subscribers of Blockbuster @Home can now stream on-demand movies and TV shows to their iPad.

    LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire -01/08/12)- (NASDAQ: DISH - News) -- DISH Network L.L.C. announced today it has enhanced its popular DISH Remote Access app for the iPad® to allow DISH customers to watch thousands of on-demand streaming movies and TV shows. DISH made the announcement at the 2012 International CES.

    DISH customers who subscribe to the Blockbuster @Home™ package or select premium movie packages, including HBO and Cinemax, can now watch popular movies, TV shows and kid's programming using the updated DISH Remote Access app on their iPad.

    "DISH is known for innovation, variety and value and has raised the bar when it comes to developing innovative ways to watch TV, whether on a big screen TV in your living room or on an iPad at the airport," said Vivek Khemka, vice president of Product Management, DISH. "DISH customers have a wide variety of entertainment options found nowhere else. Our enhanced app makes it easy to watch TV everywhere and delivers the ultimate entertainment experience."

    Streaming movies and TV shows using the enhanced DISH Remote Access app requires a DISH log-in ID and a broadband-connected iPad. The DISH Remote Access app is available today and is free to DISH customers from Apple's iTunes Store.

    To watch live TV on the iPad, subscribers need a DISH Sling® Adapter and a broadband-connected compatible DISH HD DVR receiver. More information about DISH Remote Access is available at dishnetwork.com/tveverywhere/remoteaccess.

    If this is referring to the 'On Demand' part of the iPad app that has been there for a couple weeks. Quite a bit of content available.

    So, you have to be at home to watch live, but do you have to be to watch movies?

    No. The live stuff comes from the Sling on your receiver. The On Demand stuff comes from Dish or HBO or somebodies server.

    Edit: Looking at the app on my iPad, there is currently content from Cinemax, epix, encore, HBO, movieplex and starz.

    It would be nice if Dish enabled this same streaming from TNT and these other networks from their receivers. None of the set top boxes that I am aware of offer this so the only alternative is to hook up a PC or Mac.

    That's great.
    I can watch blockbuster on my pad, but not on my HDTV because I have a 922. Does that make sense?

    The iPod Touch is to tiny to watch movies or anything for that matter.
