DISH NETWORK INTRODUCES ONLY ONLINE VIDEO PORTAL WITH LIVE TV INTEGRATION

DISHOnline.com also includes access to thousands of popular movies and TV shows


ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 24, 2010 – DISH Network today introduces DISHOnline.com, the only online video portal that integrates live and recorded TV with more than 150,000 popular movies, TV shows, clips and trailers into one easy-to-use interface.
Through DISHOnline.com, customers can watch their live TV, all of their DVR recordings, and instantly view thousands of movies, TV shows, clips and more from programmers such as Food Network, Discovery Channel, MTV, EPIX, Starz and Encore – all free with their paid subscription. Through a robust search engine, customers can browse for content by title, network, actor or genre.
For example, if a customer likes the TV show 30 Rock, he or she can search that title and pull up a range of instantly available video content related to the show, including episodes currently playing that can be watched live, past episodes, and special features and clips from the Web. DISHOnline.com will also list episodes recorded to the DVR, as well as upcoming episodes that customers can record with the click of a mouse. In addition, the search for 30 Rock will list actors on the show like Alec Baldwin. When the user clicks on his name, DISHOnline.com will display a page featuring all video content featuring Alec Baldwin, plus the ability to rent Alec Baldwin movies, such as It’s Complicated.
“DISHOnline.com integrates DISH Network’s expansive TV programming lineup with the vast amount of online video content, adding another dimension to our ‘pay once, take your TV everywhere’ product platform,” said Dave Shull, senior vice president of Programming for DISH Network. “DISH Network is committed to offering an unrivaled experience that satisfies our customers’ need to consume video in a variety of new and exciting ways.”
DISHOnline.com is also open to non-DISH Network customers, who have access to thousands of free video selections available for instant streaming. Those with a DISH Network subscription can enjoy the enhanced features of DISHOnline.com by logging in with their existing DISH Network online account information. Live and recorded TV viewing is enabled for customers with a ViP 922 SlingLoaded DVR or the upcoming Sling Adapter.
For more information or to create an account, visit www.DISHOnline.com.

OK, It's there, and lets me log in. Now what!? Is it really of ronline viewing? What if my wife wants to watch from her computer, and I from mine? Can two feed at once? I can see this getting complicated as the definition of "family" or "households" get's abused. Unless it kicks one login off when another starts up.

So, can you click to watch somethign that costs money? I'd really be teed off if there was a cost to view online and it was not clearly noted before the movie got billed to my account!

For now, I am afraid to even play with it much until I am clear that they won't be nickel and dimeing me with this service!

On the other hand ... this is fantastic if it works and allows me to watch anything in the library live online any time of day! Actually, my wife will go crazy catching up on "junk" I would never watch. ;-) But, I did see a few interesting old series in the list of what was available.

It maybe nice for some. Rental prices are pretty high when you consider I get get the same movie next day via Netflix, or even stream a lot of the same shows, via Netflix.
Netflix is way more affordable vs $6.99 per HD movie.
