DISH’s new social media app gives you on-screen access to Facebook and Twitter while watching your favorite shows.
The app makes it easy to connect, follow and share your thoughts on social networks without the need for a second screen. Start by launching DISH’s “Social” app from the quick launch bar (blue button on remote) on the Hopper, and link up to four Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Features of the social networking app include:
- Now Watching – Displays the Twitter feed relevant to the show or channel you’re watching
- My Twitter – Provides full Twitter functionality, including new tweets and retweeting
- My Facebook – Lets you view your Facebook page and post status updates
The app also tells you what’s trending by displaying interesting Twitter stats about your current DISH show, such as the frequency and location of tweets.
