DISH broadcasts TV channels to well over ten million customers, and as it turns out, a good number of them have installed the company's Android app. The software, known as DISH Anywhere, has now reached over five million installs in the Play Store. While this doesn't mean that many people are using the app (since re-installs count separately), the real number probably isn't too far off.

The latest version of DISH Anywhere contains a new sports section that keeps up with various leagues. With NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and the NCAA all represented, there's something for football, basketball, baseball, and hockey lovers alike. Viewers can follow the "Excitement Rating" to see which games are stirring the most buzz or opt out of watching entirely by signing up for score notifications instead.
