    Saw the DirecTV thread, and it prompted me to check my Adult Swim and Cartoon Network apps on the iPad... and sure enough I can login and view additional full episodes now through the Dish partnership.

    The DirecTV thread is here for those interested in some of the existing conversation before I started this one for Dish customers to discuss.

    We already had HBO and MAX Go... so I shouldn't have been surprised to see these come aboard. I can only hope (as those in the DirecTV thread said) that we don't have a zillion apps for each channel that starts to support these partnerships.

    My only gripe at the moment is... that when watching a full episode, once you get into a commercial break, you can't rewind, fast forward, or even pause or stop playback until the end of the commercial break unless you actually shut the app down!

    I get that they might want to disable commercial skipping... but they need to leave the option to pause or end playback active.

    Makes sense since Cartoon Network is a Time Warner company like HBO and CNN. I already had the Adult Swim app on my iPad. Now I need to find the Cartoon Network one.
