Please read DISH IPTV Reviews: http://dishworldiptv.blogspot.com...eview.html

DISH IPTV is provided by Neulion Service http://www.neulion.com/?clients. Their servers are slow, and you will get buffering, aka service unavailable, during evenings when everyone is jumped onto dish iptv server to watch TV. Many people have subbed by contract, and are crying they made a mistake. Optimum boost will not help resolve the problem, as their servers are slowed down by high traffic. Changing their current generic IPTV box to ROKU box makes no difference to service, as the problem is their servers. They need to add or upgrade their servers. Also, not all the international channels are on IPTV, as there are on Satellite dish.None of the channels on IPTV are HD, they are all SD 480i.

Dish IPTV is now being hosted by Move Networks, neuilon is no longer involved in the service, this change is effective as of May 23. There are no more buffering issues as the service uses something called Adaptive Streaming. You need a minimum of 1mbps to have a watchable experience or as high as 4mbps to have the best experience

May be they are improving, but still way to costly than other options like reliable iptv - i am happy with their telugu channels - very rare buffering and ON demand veiwing of entertainent channels for the last 2 weeks/14 days


BEING A CURRENT CUSTOMER OF DISHWORLD USING ROKU...SERVICE IS VERY GOOD....THERE IS NO OTHER PROVIDER WHO CAN PROVIDE YOU PREMIUM INDIAN CHANNELS (STAR/ZEE/SONY)....JUST DON'T THUMBS DOWN FOR THE SAKE OF IT!!!!


I WAS A DISH CUSTOMER FOR 12 YEARS SUBSCRIBING TO THEIR B4U/ZEE/SONY/TVASIA/MAA/GEMINI/TEJA (at different times) ALL ALONG. 6 MONTHS AGO, SWITCHED TO ROKU STREAMING TAKING YUPPTV MEGA TELUGU PACK FOR $120/YEAR. I'm SO HAPPY, I REPENT BEING DISH CUSTOMER UN-NECESSARLY PAYING THOUSANDS OF DOLLERS. NO DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY AND YOU GET LOT MORE CHANNELS ON YUPPTV. BEST FOR TELUGU. NO GOOD HINDI CHANNELS YET. RELIABLEIPTV IS EQUALLY GOOD. woot

THIS IS A LEGIT site owned by DISH NETWORK!! IF not satisifed you can CALL dish cutomer service and get connected to the DISH WORLD customer service through them.!!! They also have 48 hour REWIND feature....which is similar to having a DVR Smilie

Having a Roku player, I did subscribed to DISH iptv yesterday. I bought the Hindi package ($39.99) and I must say, the quality is as good as the Dish Satellite. I did not notice any buffering delays. Also I could watch the shows 48 hrs ago.
Dish is good for any one who wants Hindi package. I know it could be expensive but its the only reliable choice.

Watchsuntv is not part of the Roku channel Store, but you can still add it from their website on your roku with that code. It seemed to be setup in a weird way, but it works.
Yes, watchsuntv is not part of roku channel store. It means that Roku has not officially approved this channel yet so it is not publicly available others to find in their channel store. I suspect it is mainly because watchsuntv is not a subscribed Indian channel broadcasting company, and they are illegally providing all channels.

It is available on Roku channel store on their website.

I just started off using one of the packages from watchsuntv.com. They are indeed available in Roku. So far so good - it is still early days though. As far as I can tell, they dont have VOD but live streams both in IST and EST (most of the channels).
There are Doordarshan channels listed on their website in Hindi package which does not work at all. All other hindi channels are broadcasted in USA timezone (EST) only except one or two hindi channels. I seriously think they are illegally streaming all the content, because I could not find their any agreement closure with any of these channel providers on their website.

FYI: At least I see one or multiple channels facing out of sync audio and video issues everyday.

watchsuntv is a cheap option to watch hindi channels, but I don't consider them as a reliable option. You may be able to watch your favorite program if you are lucky to escape from their various issues.

Most importantly they DO NOT HAVE ANY PHONE SUPPORT. So if your service has stopped working then you can't get an immediate information about the issue.

I rolled over my service from their old set top box to the free roku xs they provided. Quality is excellent and no buferring. I had a Yupp hindi subscription on roku and it was always bufferring...dish has all the good entertainment channels too. only problem is I cannot get full screen on my 47" tv. roku sends SD transmission 4:3 to the tv.

Some comments on Dish Network on Roku,

1. Quality is very good. No buffering issues. And it is better than DVR in a sense you can see all programming 48 hours prior without the need to actually record.

2. You pay only $10 for adding additional Roku devices / or watching from computer. etc. So for three rooms, it will be base price + $10 + 10.

1. What is your cable modem or DSL speed?
2. are you using wired connection to Roku or wireless?

TIA

No, they are not. Dish Network prices are not "way too high" compared to DirecTV, cable, or any comparable service. They are lowish. If they are too high for you and you want legitimate service, you are left with OTA, Amazon Prime, Netflix....
