Dish Network Begins Streaming TV Shows Online

Beginning Tuesday, satellite TV provider Dish Network will stream TV shows to its subscribers on a website called DishOnline.com and through set-top boxes and mobile devices.  That differentiates Dish’s online offering from some other cable or satellite TV Internet channels like Time Warner and Comcast’s TV Everywhere strategies, which are primarily focused on web streaming.  According to The New York Times, the first wave of content will include shows from the Discovery Channel, HGTV and MTV. Dish plans to serve both TV shows and movies, but most of the content will only be available to subscribers. Some clips or trailers might stream to you even if you’re not a subscriber, but full-length programs and movies will generally be restricted.  Subscribers will be able to watch the online content on certain set-top boxes, in addition to the traditionally distributed shows they record with their DVRs. NewTeeVee reports that iOS, Android and BlackBerry apps are coming too.
