Game Finder

If there was an MVP of sports tools, Game Finder would definitely be it.

This interactive TV app truly takes the sports experience to a whole new level by allowing you to sort through the clutter and quickly find the hottest games using your Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR.

Game Finder is not just another sports tracking tool. This highly intuitive app does more than simply list the games available for viewing. It integrates excitement ratings based on trending games, popular teams, fantasy sports leagues and real time monitoring from Thuuz ratings to alert you of the most exciting sporting events of the moment.

“The inclusion of Thuuz ratings drives viewers to the best sports action as it happens on TV, elevating Game Finder above the numerous other score tracking tools that exist,” said Warren Packard, CEO and co-founder of Thuuz. “Our rating system keeps you in front of the action, making sure you never miss the most exciting games and giving you the edge within your fantasy league.”

Ready for sports overload? With DISH, you’ll be able to:

• Track scores of every game across the NFL, NCAAF, MLB, NBA, NCAABB and NHL
• Watch two games at once with picture-in-picture (PiP)
• Schedule recordings
• Set reminders for upcoming games
• Upgrade to include games outside your subscription with one click of the remote

To easily access this exciting feature from your Hopper, press the blue button on your remote and then select the Game Finder app.

On all other receivers, press the search button on your remote and select ‘Live Sports’ in the themes section. You can narrow your search by using keywords or selecting a specific type of sport from the sub-theme list.

You can also view the app online at or download the DISH Anywhere app here

What was your favorite Summer Blockbuster?

With the expansion of TV season into summer territory, it can be difficult to decide whether to stay in and watch satellite TV’s or go out to the movies to watch summer blockbuster. Some viewers are still making it out of the house, though, as proven by some of 2013’s top blockbusters.

The summer of 2013 saw a mixture of the new and the familiar, with the release of several highly-anticipated sequels, including

  • The Hangover Part III
  • Iron Man 3, Star Trek: Into Darkness
  • Monsters University
  • Fast & Furious 6
  • Man of Steel
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Much Ado About Nothing
  • World War Z
  • Pacific Rim

With all the new summer series being released each year, it can be tempting to evade the sun and heat of summer and stay in the house, but lovers of the summer blockbuster should get out to the big screen every once in a while. Perhaps, the key to success is a combination of the two. Set your Dish Network Hopper to record favorite summer shows and then hit the movie theater.

This summer in cinema had something for everyone. So, what was your favorite summer blockbuster? Are you a comedy-connoisseur who dug who dug The Hangover III or got drawn in with the rest of the movie-going crowd to surprise megahit The Heat, starring Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock? Is Tony Stark your kind of high-tech superhero, or do you prefer the vigilante justice of The Lone Ranger? Do you dig zombies or sea monsters?

Comment below to tell us your favorite summer blockbuster!
