  2. Sign in to your Google account, if needed.
  3. From the upper-left Menu dropdown, select HOME CONTROL.
  4. Select the “+” sign, and then choose DISH from the list.
THEN, pair your Internet-connected receiver with the Google Assistant
  1. On your DISH receiver, go to MENU, then SETTINGS, and then select GOOGLE ASSISTANT.
  2. Select GET CODE from the screen.
  3. Enter the code from the screen into the Google Home app and select ACTIVATE.
  4. Wait for the app to find discoverable devices. Confirm your devices and assign them to the correct room.
