ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
DISH today launched DISH Music, a mobile app powered by DTS Play-Fi
technology that gives customers the ability to sync music throughout
their home using one central control. This new feature uses TV audio
systems connected to Hopper 2 or Hopper 3 DVRs, as well as DTS
Play-Fi-enabled speakers, to play music from personal libraries on
mobile devices and popular streaming services, like Amazon Music,
iHeartRadio, Pandora and TIDAL.
"It can be both difficult and expensive to achieve synchronized and
high-quality whole-home audio," said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of
product management. "DISH Music is a great whole-home sound solution
designed to meet the needs of our customers, as it works with existing
audio equipment and is available at no additional cost."
DISH Music turns DISH's Hopper DVRs and connected Joeys into music
streaming zones controllable from Android or iOS smartphones and
tablets. Using the app, customers can choose to sync the same music
across rooms, or play different content in each zone. Televisions will
display the metadata for the music being played, such as the artists,
song name and music service.
Additionally, DISH Music can wirelessly pair with DTS Play-Fi-enabled
speakers connected to the same wireless network. DTS Play-Fi boasts the
largest ecosystem of whole-home wireless partners, including Aerix,
Anthem, Arcam, Definitive Technology, Klipsch, MartinLogan, McIntosh,
Paradigm, Phorus, Polk Audio, Rotel, Sonus Faber, Thiel Audio and Wren,
with products from Elite, Integra, Pioneer, Onkyo, Soundcast, SVS Sound
and more forthcoming.
Music services available with DISH Music currently include Amazon Music,
Deezer, iHeartRadio, Napster, Pandora, SiriusXM and TIDAL. Users must
have accounts to access content from these services, when required. DISH
Music will also play from personal libraries on mobile devices and is
compatible with DLNA media servers.
The DISH Music app is available for download today in the Apple App
Store, Google Play Store and Amazon app marketplace.
