DISH Network's TV EverywhereThis week, DISH Network introduced the release of its most innovative product yet with the Sling Adapter, allowing viewers to literally watch “TV Everywhere.” There’s honestly nothing worse than being forced to attend a wedding right in the middle of college football season or spend eight hours in the family “fun wagon” for a road trip.  Since our cell phones are always strapped to us regardless of the situation, we don’t have to worry about being inconvenienced from missing our favorite shows or rooting on our favorite teams now that DISH Network has given subscribers the ability to stream live TV anywhere.
