Dish Anywhere on Apple TV

If you are interested in getting the Dish Anywhere on Apple TV, then you are in the right place, here we will go into details on how you can do that. So take a closer look at this article, so you can later enjoy all the content that Dish provides on your Apple TV.

Can I get Dish Anywhere on Apple TV?

Unfortunately, the app isn’t officially available for Apple TV. If you see on the official page for Dish Anywhere on the App Store, it says that “This app is available only on the App Store for iPhone and iPad.”

Even though the official app isn’t on the App Store, there are some ways you can still enjoy the content provided by the Dish Anywhere app. 

So let’s go into more detail on these methods and what you need in order to do them. 

Method #1

The first method is a handy method that people have used to pass some restrictions that Apple puts on its devices. This feature is Airplay, and for it, you will need another Apple device like an iPhone or iPad. 

Once you have the Apple device and the Dish Anywhere app on it ready, you can Airplay it to the Apple TV, but keep in mind that you will need to mirror the screen. After doing that, you can enjoy the content that Dish Anywhere has to offer.

Method #2

The second method is quite different compared to the first one. If you want to watch content from Dish on your Apple TV, you will need to actually download the apps that your Dish plan has. Depending on the plan, you might be able to find the channel’s own app on the App Store, and then you can sign in with your Dish credentials and use it that way.

This might not seem ideal, but considering the situation that Apple has put the Dish Anywhere app, it’s an excellent workaround to it.
