  1. Thanks for the great app suggestions. I just downloaded the results app so I can keep up with the Medal totals. I have been able to watch some of the games on TV but because of my work schedule at DISH I really haven’t had the time to sit down and watch. Instead, I have been using my DISH Remote Access app to watch because it lets me stream all of my live TV channels no matter where I am. I have been able to watch the Olympics and keep track of all the medals between these two apps.
