Movies for Purchase
DISH offers you the ability to purchase movies, so you can watch your favorite content whenever you want, wherever you want, as long as you have an internet connection.
Watch your purchased content on your internet-connected Hopper, Wally, or Joey receivers, or stream it to your mobile devices at dishanywhere.com. Not to mention, unlike many other pay TV providers, DISH lets you keep your content even if you are no longer a DISH subscriber.
