Hi all,
Been thinking of buying a sling adapter for my hopper, but have a question... Since there is no Dish Remote Access app yet available for Windows Phone 7 or 8, I'm assuming I'd be able to use the phone's IE browser to view my shows on the Dishonline.com site. I know that Flash isn't available in the IE browser on WP, so if that is a requirement of Dishonline (like it is on many network sites that stream their own shows), that's not going to work. Is it possible to view my recorded shows on a WP device?
Thanks,
-Mike-

As of right now, you can't watch live TV or recordings from WP8. Dish streaming from the website requires you to install the Sling browser software, which you can't install on mobile devices. And since there isn't a Dish app for WP yet, we can't watch TV on our phones. :(

BUT I would imagine an app would be coming soon, since WP8 is a fast growing platform, and there's a Sling Player app available, so porting a Dish app should be somewhat easy...

I'm pretty sure there isn't one coming soon because of how small the user base is that uses Windows mobile compared to android or apple products.
