1.0 out of 5 stars Only compatible with Fire HDX March 10, 2014
Can't see much point in an app that will run on the HDX but not on the HD. I own 2 Kindle HDs, as other reviewers have said, you really expect me to buy new kindles just to watch dish? Also, Amazon is still selling the Fire HD in addition to the Fire HDX.

NOT compatible with my 15 month old Kindle Fire! Not sure who made this call but it is ridiculous. I saw the email and couldn't wait to download the app. So very disappointed in Amazon and DISH Network. Like one of the other reviewers I also own 2 Kindles, I will not own a 3rd.

I guess all my waiting for this app was in vain... Do I really have to get a new Kindle to see my shows? This is the last straw I give up I'll just get me a regular tablet!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not happy March 10, 2014
By L_Ann_F
Waited for this like the other reviewers & can't use it with my original Kindle Fire. I have 2 Kindles and will not be purchasing the HDX. They need to listen to us & adapt the app to use with all Kindle Fire versions.

If HBO has an app for all Fire devices, Dish should too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not compatable with lots of Kindles March 3, 2014
How can this be for the Kindle when its not compatible with a majority of Kindles? poor execution and lack of info here.

Update: looks like someone edited the name to specify HDX only, weeks later.

Will this work with Kindle Fire HD
Why would Dish Network and Amazon not work together to deliver an App that would work with all their Kindle Fire products. Complete waste! Why sell the Kindle Fire HD if they don't support it.

Hope it gets an update for the fire tv stick.
