DISH Network has caught up with what consumers want from their DVR service–the capability to watch their live and recorded programs from any TV in the house. DISH Network may be the last to adopt this popular service but the time was well spent to develop the Hopper to be the best whole home HD DVR solution available.
With the Hopper from DISH comes an innovative new way to share recordings between any high definition TV in your home. Hopper is an HD DVR with three satellite tuners providing full DVR functionality to every TV by communicating with a client receiver, the Joey. The Joey client receiver is installed on each additional television in the home and gives you the same TV user interface as the Hopper. Up to 3 Joey receivers (4 TVs) can communicate with a single Hopper and can be installed on both an HD and SD television (SD video output is RCA composite video only).
Combined, the Hopper HD DVR and Joey receivers create a whole-home solution that lets DISH customers easily record, pause, and play back shows from any room in the home. While most whole-home DVRs do not have the same receiver functionality on every TV, the Hopper and Joey whole-home system offers the same DVR functionality on every TV, letting customers pause, play and rewind both live and recorded HD programs in up to four rooms!
Key features of the Hopper and Joey whole home DVR system include:
The Hopper also includes a new and unparalleled feature, PrimeTime Anytime™, which allows customers, with one click, to record using a single tuner all of the primetime TV programming from ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC–the networks that deliver the most popular shows during primetime. Once activated by a customer, PrimeTime Anytime records network programming in high definition, where available, every night and stores them for eight days after they have aired. This creates an on-demand library of approximately 100 hours of primetime TV shows, and makes it easy to catch up on episodes from last night and last week’s airing.
Other features of the Hopper and Joey:
