With the BuddyTV Guide companion app as part of the DISH experience, users can schedule recordings, control their Hopper, easily view information about shows being watched, and explore recordings on their DVR.
“The BuddyTV experience is unique for a third party app because of its level of integration with Hopper,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, DISH director of product management. “We recognize many of our customers are using a smartphone or tablet as a companion to their DISH viewing experience, and this new BuddyTV Guide app gives them an additional option in how they interact with the Hopper.”
The relationship provides access to TV-related content for DISH customers. Using the BuddyTV Guide app while watching TV provides users with additional related content including articles, slideshows, photos, and videos about the programs users are watching.
“At BuddyTV we’ve built an intuitive entertainment discovery platform through the BuddyTV Guide, and we are excited about bringing our app to the Hopper,” said BuddyTV CEO, Andy Liu. “With DISH and BuddyTV, best in class TV experiences are being delivered directly to DISH subscribers.”
