For us, Dish Network subscribers this week is shaping to be a good week. The company just announced that DishOnline.com will be out of beta this week and start streaming cable channels like Syfy, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, MTV, HGTV, etc. Among the DishOnline features is remote DVR scheduling (which was already available through Dish Network’s main website) and the integration of the SlingLoaded devices. One of these SlingLoaded devices is the VIP922 which we reviewed. DishOnline will also be available on iPhone and iPad devices, including streaming and DVR scheduling.
Beside standard network content, DishOnline will also work as a mini-Netflix offering over 5,000 movies including new releases, many in 1080p to be rented on your HD DVR. Check after the break for DishOnline.com screenshots.
