How Does the DISH Sling® Adapter Work?

Watching TV doesn’t always have to take place in your living room. In fact, How Sling Technology Workssometimes it’s better that it doesn’t. With DISH, you can watch your TV anywhere with TV Everywhere™ technology. The DISH Sling® Adapter is a revolutionary piece of technology that transmits TV straight to a variety of devices including mobile phones, laptops and tablets.

How does Sling® Adapter work? It’s actually pretty simple.

  • The DISH Sling® Adapter plugs directly into your Hopper, ViP® 722 or 722k HD DuoDVR with a single USB cable. So long as your compatible DVR has Internet access, the DISH Sling® Adapter can now stream live TV to your internet-connected devices!
  • The next step is almost easier than the first. Download the free DISH Remote Access app to your mobile device, or go to on your laptop and you’re ready to start watching live TV anywhere you have an Internet, 3G or 4G connection.

What’s happening internally, however, is much more complicated. With other methods of streaming, video quality is usually determined by the connection it is streaming over. This means that if both you and the source have a good connection, you’ll get good video quality. Alternatively, if one or both of you have a shoddy connection, video quality will be severely diminished.

However, the way DISH Sling® Adapter works, you won’t have this problem!

By constantly monitoring both ends of your Internet connection and making adjustments accordingly, the Sling® can deliver the best audio and video quality possible right to your mobile device so long as you’re connected to the internet.
