DISH keeps it's test software closer to the company and controls what software is sent to each receiver. There is no way of "forcing a download" of software not already targeted for your receiver.

DISH has occasionally asked for volunteers to test specific features of a new software before it goes "national" but these tests are unfortunately rare. There is no regular public "CE" style program.

DISH Network is a leader in many things, so yes, DISH is on the cutting edge of technology. But that isn't what "CE" is about. "CE" is a DirecTV program where users voluntarily and intentionally force each download of pre-release software for testing. DISH does not have such a voluntary program in place. DISH normally tests via registered beta testers who sign non-disclosure agreements and report directly to DISH confidentially.

Some people like to humorously call themselves "beta testers" if they are "lucky" enough to be among the first customers to receive a DISH software release but there is a program in place for pre-testing software. It just is not an open process like DirecTV's "CE" program.
