DISH has launched its Gallery by DISH scapes app on its Hopper platform. The service, free in preview to all DISH Hopper and SLING TV customers through Sept. 30 and regularly priced at $5 per month thereafter, brings a variety of nature scenes, fine art and original DISH scapes directly to subscribers’ TVs. The app builds on the company’s existing, free DISH scapes monthly offering, which features a combination of digital painting and animation in various settings. Gallery by SLING scapes will also be available to SLING TV customers.
“Given the current environment, Americans are looking for creative ways to escape the day-to-day, and our customers have embraced our original DISH scapes — with more than two million unique viewers watching over 19 million total hours since it launched in December 2019,” said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV in the announcement statement. “Now is the perfect time to expand Gallery by DISH scapes with a variety of nature and fine art scenes, available to customers from the comfort of their own homes.”
DISH customers can add Gallery by DISH scapes to their DISH account via mydish.com/gallery and receive their first month for free, regularly $5 per month. SLING TV customers can purchase Gallery by SLING scapes as a standalone video-on-demand channel for $5 per month starting October 1.
Gallery by DISH scapes features the following categories, with new content added monthly:
Nature scenes: Explore beaches, mountains, waterfalls and more from around the world, with access to over 100 nature videos. Each nature scene is paired with natural sounds or relaxing music.
Fine art: Visit a fine art gallery without ever leaving home, with over 200 pieces from artists such as Van Gogh, Monet, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Degas, Renoir, Cezanne and others. Four art collections will be included at launch: Van Gogh, Monet, Iconic Masterpieces and Impressionism.
DISH scapes: Originally launched in December 2019, DISH scapes has featured eight unique scenes created with digital painting and animation. Current and future monthly DISH scapes are available for free on channel 199 and now via the Gallery by DISH scapes app.
The Gallery by DISH scapes app is accessible on all Hopper family receivers by saying “Gallery” using the DISH Voice Remote, via Channel 198 or from the Apps Menu. SLING TV customers can access Gallery content on the My TV tab.
