No, this isn’t the same TV Everywhere that the cable TV companies are pushing (Dish says it’s pursuing a trademark).
However, the two TV Everywhere’s are similar. The idea behind the separate services is that if you’re a paying TV customer, you should get access to those shows online and on TV.
The big difference? Cable TV’s version may not include every TV channel you pay for in your cable plan. Dish’s does, said Vivek Khemkeh Khemka (corrected 2:56 p.m.), Dish’s vice president of customer technology.
“The key message of TV Everywhere is that you pay once for your TV and you can get it everywhere you want,” Khemka said.
By everywhere, Khemka means online, from any computer, from compatible mobile phones and on a second TV in the house that may not have a receiver.
