When you click on Info on programs on DISH, one of the things it puts at the bottom is "You might also like:" with five (occasionally fewer) other movies or shows that it thinks are similar enough to what you've clicked Info on that you might also be interested in those shows, too.

However, it seems that DISH really, really, really likes the recent movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. Not only does DISH list Avengers: Age of Ultron under "You might also like:" for pretty much every program under the categories Action, Adventure, Fantasy or Science Fiction, but also for all kinds of movies that don't have any apparent connection to Age of Ultron at all. Even more curiously, it's listed first every single time. Here's a list of some of the movies with no obvious Ultron connection that I've collected so far:

27 Dresses (romance/comedy, 2008)
Let's Be Cops (comedy, 2014)
Guarding Tess (Nicolas Cage, 1994)
Seven Pounds (Will Smith, 2008)
The Intern (Robert de Niro, 2015 comedy)
