At the Dish booth here at CES Unveiled 2012, the company showed off its updated Remote Access app, which now streams on-demand video to the iPad. If you're a Dish customer currently subscribed to Blockbuster @Home or premium channels like HBO and Cinemax, you'll now have access to thousands of movies and TV shows (like Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm) right on your iPad.

Additionally, Dish announced a partnership with Google TV and an application called Thuuz, which we're told will track a specific sports team and use special algorithms to alert you when that team is playing an exciting game. The app will also record that team's games automatically, right onto the set-top box. We didn't get a chance to see the application running on an actual Google TV, but we'll be on the lookout for a demo on the show floor. Stay tuned.
